May the fourth be with you! Today is Star Wars Day….go figure.
Remember back to 9/11…..all the deaths and destruction was the result of one organization and only one….Al-Qaeda.
Osama became the world’s most wanted fugitive and resources were spent hand over fist to find him and eliminate him….Hell we even went to war to get the SOB that attacked the US on 9/11.
After 15 years of war and drone strikes killing more people than the attacks on 9/11…we are still NO closer to eliminating this group from the face of the earth….we did however eliminate the head of the snake but the snake still lives.
They have moved into Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Syria……and all those locations we are dropping ordinance on them like a summer rain…..that is all over but in Syria……
Say what? Why would the US give AQ Syria a break from the battering?
There is an easy answer….AQ Syria is on our side in our battles with ISIS, the scourge of the Middle East…..
Now we see the extraordinary situation where the US government admits that the militia groups Jaish al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham are fighting alongside and are “intermingled with” al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front, but resoundingly rejects the Russian request to therefore classify these two groups terrorist.
In fact, not only does fighting alongside and “intermingling with” al-Qaeda not get a group classified “terrorist,” the US government is actually asking Russia and the Syrian government to stop shooting at such groups!
So the State Department is urging the Syrians and Russians to stop bombing Aleppo because Jaish al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham are operating there, even though it also admits that the groups are “intermingling” with al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front.
Do you find this unusual?
You should not….think back….Noriega, Saddam, etc….those bastards were once friends with the US and the CIA but found themselves on the wrong end of the politics of DC…..
Now the question is…..Is AQ still a terrorists organization? Or do they get a deferment but only in Syria? What will happen when ISIS is NO longer a threat? Will AQ once again be on the “bad boys” list?
I wrote a op-ed for my friends at Ace News Room about how confusing the conflict in Syria has become……
I thought at the very beginning of the civil war in Syria that the situation was confusing…..we had 34+ factions fighting the Syrians, the US, ISIS, each other and God knows what else. And t…
Now this turn of events……do you get the feeling that these jokers have NO idea what they are doing in Syria?
While you were worried about all those refugees our country is in bed with the same organization that caused the attacks on 9/11……
Is anyone listening?
Does anyone know what SNAFU means?
