Syria: U.S hypocrisy on Syria situation

First it was Assad who was murdering the civilians. U.S was all set to invade Syria. It was a matter of days according to reports in late August and early September of this year. Now the tune has changed. It is the rebels and Al-Qaida who are doing the murdering and forcing people out of Syria. Assad more or less is the victim now as his soldiers are being killed. I don't know what to believe.

Turkey near the town of Azaz in Syria.

"These refugees are leaving the country because of Al-Qaeda according new reports.

Raffaello Pantucci, a senior research fellow with Britain’s Royal United Services Institute, said the group - which began as an evolution of al Qaeda in Iraq - was seeking a long-term foothold in the country.

“Their final goal is to create an Islamic Emirate which becomes a piece of territory which they control. And from there they will start to export jihad everywhere else,” Pantucci said.

He added they were prepared to achieve this at the expense of other Islamic groups including Jabhat al Nusra, a Syrian group with similar aims and which also has ties to al Qaeda."
