Al Qaeda Goes to Syria: How to Build an Emirate Overnight

  Let's try a thought experiment. Suppose you want to create your own army in say, Syria. You live in Pakistan. You are also a listed terrorist organization allegedly being hunted by multiple nations around the world including both the United States and the EU. How do you suppose you "move" to Syria and build your army or even something as grand as an "emirate?"

With what money? With what political support? How do you pass the various borders between Pakistan and Syria to even arrive in your new "emirate?"

Al Qaeda: Heroes of the Empire

syrian President Bashar al Assad would seem like a natural ally to the United States and the European Union. He heads a secular government and presides over a secular nation. It is a nation where extremist political factions like the Muslim Brotherhood are outlawed and armed terrorist groups hunted down and eliminated. There was even a point in history before the 2011 war began within and along Syria's borders that Washington even feigned such an alliance with Damascus.

The London Telegraph in its article, "John Kerry and Bashar al-Assad dined in Damascus," reported:

Standing Up To Multinational Big-Ag: Nepal, Monsanto, & USAID
