Al Qaeda Establishing a Base in Syria

 No one could ever have predicted that the War on Terror would fail...

Oh, it's a "generational conflict". Right....

In the meantime, be very afraid:
“A key question, however, is how using Syria as a launching pad to strike the West fits into Zawahri’s overall strategy, and if he’s soft-pedaling now, hoping to consolidate Al Qaeda’s position for the future,” said one American counterterrorism official. “Clearly, there is going to be push and pull between local operatives and Al Qaeda central on attack planning. How fast the pendulum will swing toward trying something isn’t clear right now.”
The new assessment is not likely to change American policy toward Syria any time soon, but it puts pressure on the Obama administration and its allies because it raises the possibility that Syria could become the next Afghanistan. Top officials at the F.B.I., the National Counterterrorism Center and the Department of Homeland Security say they are working closely with European allies to track Westerners returning from Syria.
There are perhaps “a few dozen” Qaeda veterans of fighting in Afghanistan and Pakistan in Syria, two top counterterrorism officials said. “What we’ve seen is a coalescence in Syria of Al Qaeda veterans from Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as extremists from other hot spots such as Libya and Iraq,” Matthew G. Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, told a Senate panel in March. “From a terrorism perspective, the most concerning development is that Al Qaeda has declared Syria its most critical front.”
In his first speech as secretary of Homeland Security in February, Jeh C. Johnson put it even more bluntly. “Syria has become a matter of homeland security,” he said.

Yay, military industrial complex!!!

U.S. tax dollars are funding the syrian rebels (al qaeda) thanks to obama. lest we suppose this is a typical left-wing operation, uber right-wing PNAC bastard john mccain not only supports al qaeda in syria but is actually photographed shaking hands with the terrorists.
right then, exactly who are the terrorists again?

the US military spends trillions of dollars bombing the fuck out of "terrorists" in afghanistan and iraq and pakistan and libya and yemen and somalia etc but lets the mexican drug cartel terrorists operate with impunity even on the american side of the border.
proof that the US govt does not care one iota about the US people.

IMO, it's not as simple as you said.
US only lets certain trusted drug cartels operate with some impunity, here in the US. They often bust cartel honchos to eliminate or neuter those who pose a threat to favored cartels.

The trillions of dollars you mention is as much about corporate welfare and helping to keep our economy from falling into another major recession.

are you actually suggesting that the trillions of dollars that are indeed being spent bombing the fuck out of brown people in other countries is justified because it is "helping to keep our economy from falling into another major recession."??

You are guilty of the very common mistake in logical reasoning, i.e.
confusing correlation with causation.
