Downfall: The Next Generation?

“Algeria: Al-Qaeda uses elderly terrorists in change of tactics.”

But is it a sign of a last gasp? Because on the surface, it sounds remarkably reminiscent of Nazi Germany’s last days and their drafting of elderly men into the Volkssturm to me.

Related: “While hundreds of Taliban are believed to have been killed, two British soldiers and one American soldier lost their lives.”

Update: And just like the Volksturm, al Qaeda are also recruiting lots of young volk, as well.
