Rooting for No One: Al Qaeda Claims Responsibility for Syria Attack

If it weren't for all the innocents who get caught in the crossfire, I really would wish that the war in Syria would never end. On the one side you have the Nazi Baathists who are the main conduit through which Iran funds the terrorists in Hezbollah. On the other side? Al Qaeda:

Jabhat al-Nusra, which the U.S. says has ties to al-Qaeda and has declared a terrorist organization, said in a statement posted online that one of its suicide bombers detonated a car bomb last Monday at the headquarters of a pro-government militia in the central province of Hama. It said the bomber drove a truck packed with explosives to the militia's complex in the town of Salamiya and blew himself up "to give the tyrannical regime a taste" of violence it has been inflicting on the Syrian people.

Activists said at least 42 people, mostly pro-Assad militiamen, were killed in the blast.

So, there you have it. Syria is fast becoming the new Lebanon of the Middle East.
