All of these so called fighter or jihadists are killers for hire. They are the modern equivalent of the “Left behind armies”/Operation Gladio. A means to sow terror, destruction and destabilization as far and wide as deemed necessary. Here is a post from /08 referencing that with links
Yes, I have read both of those books. They are quite good. I would recommend them both. All links are viable in that post.
These inhumane brutes lay seige to places like schools. And the fawning, lying NATO media never asks...
Why have you taken over a school? In a neighbourhood filled with families?
Why have you laid siege to an elementary school where kids play? Why did you bring the war to their door?
Instead the media spins the story. Sick.
Aleppo had been pretty quiet until the rebel armies came.
One last video- This link left by Brian. Thanks Brian!

The lying media is only fooling those that wish to be fooled.

August 7/12- CFR update begins here- Al-Qaeda's Specter in Syria
The Syrian rebels would be immeasurably weaker today without al-Qaeda in their ranks. By and large, Free Syrian Army (FSA) battalions are tired, divided, chaotic, and ineffective.
Al-Qaeda fighters, however, may help improve morale. The influx of jihadis brings discipline, religious fervor, battle experience from Iraq, funding from Sunni sympathizers in the Gulf, and most importantly, deadly results.
Most importantly, deadly results??!! So this is the imperative? To kill as many people as possible.
In Syria, al-Qaeda's foot soldiers call themselves Jabhat al-Nusrah li-Ahli al-Sham (Front for the Protection of the Levantine People). The group's strength and acceptance by the FSA are demonstrated by their increasing activity on the ground (BBC)--from seven attacks in March to sixty-six "operations" in June. In particular, the Jabhat has helped take the fight to Syria's two largest cities: the capital of Damascus, where 54 percent of its activities have been, and Aleppo. Indeed, al-Qaeda could become the most effective fighting force in Syria if defections from the FSA to the Jabhat persist and the ranks of foreign fighters (Guardian) continue to swell.Drooling over the fact that the terrorists have taken the fight into the cities. The heavily populated cities. Guaranteeing massive casualties. Can this get any uglier? Can it? Can it get anymore obvious and brazen?
I find this piece of elite trash utterly appalling.
Al-Qaeda is not sacrificing its "martyrs" in Syria merely to overthrow Assad. Liberation of the Syrian people is a bonus, but the main aim is to create an Islamist state in all or part of the country. Failing that, they hope to at least establish a strategic base for the organization's remnants across the border in Iraq, and create a regional headquarters where mujahideen can enjoy a safe haven.
What kind of drugs is this person on? The Syrian people will not be "liberated" if a religious terror state is created. This is what the US is supporting. Disgusting.
