Jihadists from the Al-Nusra Front have crossed over into Kessab from Turkey, and are desecrating churches, pillaging houses, and destroying government buildings, according to Syrian Armenian community activist Nerses Sarkissian during a phone interview with Armenian Weekly editor Khatchig Mouradian. Al Nusra, the Syrian wing of Al Qaeda, is reported to be receiving training and foreign fighters from Ansar al-Shariah, believed by American officials to be involved in the September attack on the American diplomatic compound and CIA facility in Benghazi, Libya.
Robert Fisk at The Independent pointed out in his latest article that when the United States attacks Syria, that members of Al Qaeda, the men who destroyed so many thousands on 9/11 will then be fighting alongside the very nation whose innocents they so cruelly murdered almost exactly 12 years ago. Quite an achievement for Obama, Cameron, Hollande and the rest of the miniature warlords. Althought the editor of ShaynRoby.com disagrees with Fisk’s characterization of the Iraq war as arrived at on the “basis of lies originally uttered by fakers and conmen” (General Jorges Sada of the Iraqi Army spoke of WMD’s being moved to Syria under the cover of a U.N. caravan after a massive earthquake), it can be agreed upon that siding with an organization in one region of the globe, while blasting away at them in another (Yemen) makes absolutely no sense.
