Al-Qaida leader calls on Sunnis to fight in Syria

Source: Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) -- Al-Qaida's leader has urged Sunni Muslims to spare no effort to join the battle in Syria, overthrow President Bashar Assad and set up Islamic rule in the country.

Ayman al-Zawahri called on Sunnis everywhere to devote their lives, money and expertise for the fight and prevent a U.S.-allied government from taking over in post-Assad Syria.

He urged Sunnis to "rise above their differences" and fight expanding Shiite influence in Syria.

The message came in a new audio recording posted on Thursday on the Internet. Its authenticity could not be independently confirmed but the message was posted on a militant website commonly used by al-Qaida.

1. That makes it official: we are at war with our allies in our undeclared war against Syria.

This intervention is insane.

5. Are 20.000 soldiers enough to secure the border ?

Around 20,000 soldiers were sent to the 600-kilometer border with Syria to start attacking the hideouts of the militants who belong to terrorist groups including al-Qaeda, AFP reported Saturday.

9. That's the Iran-aligned Iraqi Shiite government sending troops to the Syrian border.

The Axis of Resistance (Hezbollah, Syria, Iran, and now, Iraq, thanks to the overthrow of Saddam Hussein) is resisting both the jihadis and the West. This is turning into a real clusterfuck.

6. So basically this whole global war on Tewwah turned out to be a total waste of time.

Our government is sooooo f***in' greedy and stupid. And the people who voted for these war-mongering assholes are even worse.
