    Al Qaida works for US strategy.

    In 1990, Soviet bloc collapsed. US intelligence turned its resource which used to deal with Soviet bloc to the new target - Mid-east countries which are rich in natural resource. Bin Laden, an asset of the CIA in Afghanistan war(against Russian), was revived in this new project as a false flag - Islamic extremist. He went to Sudan first in 1991.

    The Sudanese offered to arrest Bin Laden and extradite him to Saudi Arabia .

    Clinton Let Bin Laden Slip Away and Metastasize
    Saudi and US didn't take the offer with various excuse because Bin Laden is a living plant they deployed there.

    In 1995, Bin Laden tried to set up a connection with Saddam but was refused.

    Exhaustive review finds no link between Saddam, al Qaida

    A September 2006 report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that Saddam was "distrustful of al Qaida and viewed Islamic extremists as a threat to his regime, refusing all requests from al Qaida to provide material or operational support."

    The Senate report, citing an FBI debriefing of a senior Iraqi spy, Faruq Hijazi , said that Saddam turned down a request for assistance by bin Laden which he made at a 1995 meeting in Sudan with an Iraqi operative.

    Sudan may have felt the danger to accomodate Bin Laden. In May 1996, the Sudanese asked bin Laden to leave. He went to Afghan and stay there until now.

    In August 1998, Sudan and Afghanistan were bombed by US missiles.

    In 2001, after 911, Afghan, facing US invasion, made an offer but failed.

    In Bin Laden's recent 20 years, the countries he went or tried to go, have something in common: They all have rich natural resources. Sudan and Iraq have oil. Afghan has rich mine. '

    He didn't go to Yemen, Somali or Syria for his "revolution" because they are resource poor countries, not in US interest list. He didn't go to Saudi or Kuwait. Because they are US allies. He only went to Sudan, Afghan, or Iraq (intended to) because these three countries were not controlled by US at that time. As a living plant, he gave US the excuse to activate attack on these three countries. (Even Saddam realized that Bin Laden was a dangerous living plant and rejected him, Iraq at last was invaded with an unexisted WMD)

    The reviving of Al Qaida in Iraq is to give US an excuse to return to Iraq.

    Under whose American leadership? And why would the US want to return to Iraq?

    OK, then, if you don't like the term "theocracy", can you think of an example of a nation where the church and state are one, but still has religious freedom?

    Colin Powell thought so, and said so during a speech at the U.N. You can go look it up. I'm not bothering with a link.
