The eight old men are thought to have been murdered because they were brokering a cease-fire between the Pakistani security forces and Islamofascist thugs hiding in northwestern Pakistan. The elders were killed in eight separate attacks late Sunday and early Monday.
Apparently, it is the hope of AQ and Taliban brain trusts that the continued slaughter of the people that have sheltered them for years is a good way to win hearts and minds. Good luck with that.
Back in the 1920s and '30s, Chicago's Al Capone was prone to kill, or have killed, anyone who got in his way, didn't buy his illegal product, bought his enemies product, or just looked at him funny. One of his trusted confidants, Meyer Lansky, I think, looked at the dwindling customer base and advised Alphonse, "You don't kill your customers; it's bad for business!" I think this would be good advice for OBL and his Taliban minions. It's good for us that OBL doesn't learn much outside of the koran and hadith. He'll continue killing the people that support him and they will continue defecting. Good plan.
