Nope, the media keeps mentioning the end... this ends nothing, just a victory that hopefully demoralizes al qaeda on the eve of their "spring offensive".

Or perhaps stoke rebellion and revolution in the Kingdom of Saud, much like Libya, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen etc... The timing of this announcement is impeccable as the potential for a US debt default looms.

Been noticing lots of heavy lift and transport aircraft flying in formation over Scotland recently making the USA, middle east track. frown
