    AQ is not material.

    There are many derivatives that will take the so called jihad forward.

    Stephen Biddle, during a Hearing at the Congress said:

    Accepting that as true, that the core goal was ‘disrupting and denying sanctuary to AQ’, it is evident that the terrorists have not been disrupted, nor have they been denied their sanctuaries .

    The sanctuaries are not in Afghanistan. It is in Pakistan. The statements emanating from the US before and consequent to the OBL episode indicates that the sanctuaries are in Pakistan. The Drone attacks indicate the same.

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11and OBL, amongst others, found sanctuary there. as true, it is evident that the terrorists have not been disrupted, nor have they been denied their sanctuaries .

    Haqqani rules the terrorist roost now.

    The Americans apparently are tired and want to quit and use the killing of OBL as another of those "Mission Accomplished"s !! The appear to have lost the stomach to stay the course given their domestic worries.

    1. If the US quits, will China/ Russia move in/ influence events?

    2. What will be the Pakistan action once the US quits?

    3. What role and influence with the terrorist organisations have on the new dispensation when the US quits?

    4. Will the terrorists (Taliban) take over the Govt and what will be its relations with Pakistan?

    5. If the US quits, what will be the relations equation with:

    (a) Afghanistan.
    (b) Pakistan.
    (c) US.
    (d) China.
    (e) Russia.

    6. What actions should India undertake to safeguard Indian interests if the US quits?

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11and OBL, amongst others, found sanctuary there.
