  •  The triple Washington-London-Al Qaeda alliance (2+ / 0-)

    -- bankrolled by Saudi Arabia -- is a great menace the to the entire world.

    But it keeps our defense industry rolling in dough and promises to transform Muslim power from Shiite to Sunni -- which is really the only game the Middle East has ever been playing. The US is being rickrolled, as per usual.

    The Assad regime began directly supporting Al-Qaeda as the U.S. invasion of Iraq neared, though the Hezbollah networks supported by Assad worked with Al-Qaeda before that.

    Now, Al-Qaeda in Iraq has turned its sights on its former sponsor, just as General David Petraeus predicted. One low-level Al-Qaeda operative in Iraq says, “Our big hope is to form a Syrian-Iraqi Islamic State for all Muslims, and then announce our war against Iran and Israel, and free Palestine.”

    The US needs to mind its own business and stay the hell out of the Middle East. It just lost two wars there and bankrupted the American people as a result of its self-destructive foreign policy.

    Enough already.

      The sole CIA involvement has been to try to steer Saudi and Qatari weapons shipments away from al Qaeda.

      This is widely known among people who are actually paying attention to the facts on the ground, as opposed to repeating their favorite narratives and assuming the facts will fit them.

      BTW, when, exactly, did you start shouting about Skeery Al Qaeda Mooslems, anyway?

        This week German intelligence revealed that FSA is largely al Qaeda, in the employ of the Saudis.

        Ya gotta keep up if you want to play this game.

          and your reply is completely off topic.

          How, exactly, did you manage to read

          The sole CIA involvement has been to try to steer Saudi and Qatari weapons shipments away from al Qaeda.
          and think that noting the presence of al Qaeda figures in the opposition somehow contradicts that statement?

          If there were no al Qaeda involved, why would anybody be working to steer weapons away from them?

          You claimed that the US was allied with al Qaeda.  I provided information - which you can't contradict - demonstrating that the US was, in fact, working in opposition to al Qaeda.  And you're dong a little superior dance over an imaginary claim that there were no al Qaeda in the country?
