Nationalism is power hunger tempered by self-deception. - George Orwell

In a twist of irony that has escaped mainstream commentators, during the week of 9/11, the US is considering a course of action that will empower Al-Qaeda, i.e. bombing Syria.

As terror expert Evan Kohlmann put it, “two of the most powerful insurgent factions in Syria are Al-Qaeda factions.” Kohlmann is an authority on the subject, having worked as a consultant in terrorism matters for the DoD, DOJ, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies.

Regarding the prospective strike on Syria, Steven A. Cook, a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at The Council on Foreign Relations, warns that “American and allied cruise missiles would be to the benefit of the Al-Qaeda-linked militants fighting Assad—the same militants whom US drones are attacking regularly in places such as Yemen.”

The irony is not that our government is about to support Al-Qaeda, the irony is that our government is about to support Al-Qaeda AGAIN. When they fought the Soviets, we armed them. When they attacked us, we leveraged the full might of our military against them. Now that they are fighting an ally of Iran (our "enemy"), we arm and enable their ambitions once more. No there is no irony at all here actually. This is insanity, that repetition of previous action with the expectation of different results. Well, let's not be too presumptive, maybe the expectation is precisely the same results. You never know.
