The Nibble Offensive

from The Strategy Page

September 4, 2007: The LTTE campaign to drive Moslems out of eastern Sri Lanka had a noxious side effect. Islamic radical groups formed to fight back. These groups grew out of Wahhabi missionary efforts (funded by Saudi Arabian religious charities). The Wahhabi preach a very conservative form of Islam, and the need to fight non-Moslems. The Islamic radicals formed a coalition with Moslem gangsters, so that when the army pushed the LTTE out of the east, they found armed Moslem groups, that don't want to disarm.
