In April of 1926, Hitler created the SS, a private army explicitly loyal to Hitler that was especially formulated to be independent of the Nazi party.
From meager beginnings, the SS would rise to become the world's most feared paramilitary force. Hitler greatly augmented his army by later establishing among the German military a compulsory military oath of allegiance to Hitler as the supreme commander, laying the foundation on which he built the Nazi war machine. Touting the world’s most feared military Hitler would conquer continental Europe, invade the Soviet Union and provoke a world war in 1942 by inciting Great Britain, Russia and America to enter direct military combat in his war. In April of 1986, Bin Laden opened his own mujahedin base camps, created his own private army from Arab Afghan mujahedin and started his own battlefield fronts against the Soviet invasion forces. He called his army Al Masadah (The Lion's Den), a guerrilla militia that would become Al Qaeda's military wing. Framing himself as an epic warrior-prophet in the tradition of the Prophet Mohammed, Bin Laden inspired the zealous devotion of his band of Islamic radicals.
From a meager, ragtag band of militant Islamists, Bin Laden built his army of guerrilla fighters into the world's largest and most resilient terrorist empire, one capable of waging a successful war against the lone superpower for over fifteen years. Although Al Qaeda's global campaign of terrorist attacks has distinguished the group as the world's most feared military, Al Qaeda’s most powerful military capability has emerged largely unnoticed. After the fall of Al Qaeda’s only official state sponsorship in December 2001, the group was bestowed with a strategic nuclear advantage over America as a stateless (and target-less) army. With this nuclear-proof terrorist empire, in 2002 Bin Laden succeeded in provoking America, Russia and Great Britain to enter into a world war against Al Qaeda, a success that also included America's covert initiation of the Iraq War.
