Kill One, Get New One

President Barack Obama has a theory, save American lives by using Drone attacks and gradually, one by one kill off the leadership of al-Qaeda or the Taliban and victory will be ours in Afghanistan. The United States killed Osama bin Laden, and since that event al-Qaeda has expanded its operations in Algeria, in Mali and is now working in Somalia. Yesterday, after an American Drone killed Hakimullah Mehsud, leader of the Pakistan Taliban, a new leader was elected. Malala Yousafazi will now assume leadership of the group and killings will go on. Eventually, another Drone will kill this man who will be replaced by another man and so on and so on.

Actually, Pakistan officials were preparing to meet with Mehsud in order to initiate peace talks, but since he is dead, no one knows if the new leader wants to talk. Question to President Obama: “Could you cite an example in which a leader of a terror group was killed that led to dissolution of the terror group?”
