According to an AP story, three separate suicide cars packed with explosives were detonated this morning near an officer’s club in Aleppo killing over 30 people and injuring many who got trapped under the rubble of destroyed buildings. Another car exploded outside the Chamber of Commerce of Aleppo. This one, I estimate, to be a signal to the business community of Aleppo whose interests are tied with the Assad regime.
There has been a wave of suicide attacks against symbols of the AssadÂ power in the last two weeks. As Assad battles for his survival with warplanes and heavy artillery, the extremists fighting him are responding with suicide car bombs. Only 10% of those fighting in Syria today are considered extremists, all of them attracted to Syria to fight against Assad when the international community failed to act to stop his carnage against peaceful demonstrators.
To all those who point the finger at this new terror element in Syria, you must also point out the obvious: These elements would not have procreated had President Obama interfered in the Syrian conflict to assist Syrians fighting for their freedom by supporting elements of the FSA, all Syrian officers well vetted by the Assad regime for their moderate views.
Apathy by Obama has degenerated into more terror in the region, not less. What’s the use of killing Bin Laden if your policies grow another 100 Bin Ladens?
