The Reason for Instant Gratification in Al-Qaeda and Similar Groups
Matoko Kusanagi wrote about the Other Side's habit of instant gratification:
When the goddess Thetis dipped baby Achilles in the pool of invulnerability, she unfortunately had to hold onto him somewhere, so she kept his baby heel from being armorized. I think Al-Qaeda has a similiar Achille's heel, and it will prevent them from ever achieving their goals. And I think that heel is instant gratification.This has a simple explanation. They are not trying to win. Victory is in God's hands. They are trying to get the credit for God's inevitable victory so they must act faster than other Muslims.
In other words, they are not only murderous scumbags, they are trying to hog credit.
