Elements of 4GW

Or, seeking the "legitimate" 4GW element.

A reflection of and addition (alteration of?) to Zenpundit's recent excellent post.

The nonstate 4GW: al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad

The failed state 4GW: Hamas, Islamic Courts Union.

The state (legitimate) 4GW: Hezbollah, IRA.

Inspired by the commentary of Meatball One at Zenpundit's "al Qaidastan Rising" post.

I'll take a stab at adding another category:

The secret state 4GW - Cosa Nostra (Sicilian version, not US).

Heh. I had to research that term. An interesting addition and one which I might well apply to the US mafia during the early 20th century. Or even mid-20th century if the mafia/JFK assassination conspiracy carries weight.
