Things That May or May Not be Happening Under the Radar

I began at American Digest. I took the link to House of Eratosthenes. This teaser was intriguing enough to plunge through the next link to American Thinker.
NBC News reports that a large operation is ongoing at the Tora Bora fortress in the mountains along the Afghani-Paki border and we may have just missed Usama bin Laden. I must admit that this caught me off guard. The US media has not been talking about a fight there at all, much less a large scale battle with al Qaeda leadership. So I perused one of my favorite anti-terror blogs The Jawa Report. Jawa has a link to another blog called the Internet Anthropologist which has been tracking what is going on in Tora Bora.
The whole article is worth reading, as are some of the links to Internet Anthropologist.

In addition, Smooth Stone reports,
Hizbullah is rehearsing for something big. A few days ago, between 4,000 and 5,000 Hizbullah gunmen deployed to the Christian areas of Beirut in an unsettling "show of force," positioning themselves at road intersections and other key points throughout the city. The operation served as a probing action to determine local reaction, and as an exercise to gauge the time required (speed, synchronization, etc.) to achieve control of key points. Amazingly, there was no response from the police or the army. Hizbullah is jamming cell-phone signals almost daily. Their lookouts are everywhere, and they are watching the people I'm with and me. Hizbullah is far better armed, equipped, and tactically proficient than most Americans might realize. They are terrorists to be sure, but they are also a very strong Iranian-trained guerrilla force and they seem to be getting a pass from far too many people in high places.
and Smooth Stone also reports from Israel,
U.S. and Israeli defense officials are hammering out details of a potential $1.2 billion arms sale to the Israel Air Force, whose inventory of front-line missiles, munitions and other expendables was depleted in the summer 2006 Lebanon War. The series of U.S. administration-proposed Foreign Military Sales (FMS), presented to Congress in four packages, breezed through the customary 50-day legislative review process that ended in late September.
So big things may be about to happen and may be happening now. There is no doubt in my mind that the United States and Israel can destroy Al-Queda, Hezbollah, etc militarily. But what's the point when we're allowing Islamic culture to trump our own superior (yes, that's right, it is superior) Judeo-Christian culture?

Watch out! With this kind of post you will be labeled CIA!! Great deductions.
On a flight last week end, we were privileged to sit next to a young marine, he works in intelligence, and he mentioned the near miss of OBL.
And we are allowing for Islam to gain a huge foot hold.
