Syria is the new training ground for al Qaeda. Barack Obama was quick to take credit for the killing of Osama Bin Laden as he declared that the terrorist organization had been “decimated” and was “on the path to defeat.” He knows damned well that the main force of the Syrian opposition fighters are being augmented by al Qaeda-linked groups,and that their supporters are waging jihad. The Free Syrian Army are employing the jihadists against pro-Assad forces and Syrian Christians. Obama does NOT have al Qaeda on the run. And his covert arming of the rebels is most likely providing arms to al Qaeda forces.
According to current intelligence estimates,there are around 6,000 foreign terrorists fighting in Syria. Most are Sunni Muslims opposing the Shiites and Iranian Republican Guards fighting for the Assad regime. Chechen fighters are there as well. The jihadists enter Syria from Turkey. If they were on the run,then why is Syria becoming the new training ground for al Qaeda? Not only are these jihadists fighting the pro Assad forces;they are killing Syrian Christians for sport. Not too much objective reporting is being done concerning Syria as the low information,Obama acolytes aren’t interested. The Free Syrian Army isn’t interested in the Christian population;and by swearing an oath to al Qaeda,they are not secular as the Obama White House prefers to label them.
Weapons are flowing into Syria faster than the Department of Homeland Security can buy ammo. Russia is supplying pro Assad forces while France,Saudi Arabia,Qatar,Turkey,and the Obama Administration are arming the al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood-financed Syrian rebels. Reports are that rebel forces have been using shoulder-launched SA-7/SA-16 anti-aircraft missiles. These weapons are easy to use and can be smuggled out and fired against the commercial aircraft of western nations.
So,Al Qaeda is on the run,Mr. President? Not hardly. They are regrouping and re-training in Syria. The West will regret their support for the al Qaeda-led rebels when the weapons they have supplied them are used against unarmed populations in the West’s own homelands.
