From the Article


Experts disagree about the makeup of the group but it is thought to have arisen out of Homs last year during the general uprising in Syria with the stated goal to "to avenge the people of Homs," according to Al Arabiya. Since the fighting began, the Assad regime has dubbed the opposition as "foreign-backed terrorists" and while most analysts disagree with that claim, it could be true for the Al-Nusra Front. On Friday, Western intelligence officials told the Associated Press that the group "could be a front for al-Qaida’s Iraq branch."

Who ever they are it is horrible to set off car bombs and kill at random. It is not that Syria hasn't had enough bloodshed and misery.

A dreadful new twist, and i thought Assad was behind the bombing...but i hope he isn't holding his breath waiting for an apology from me.

Wait, on second thought I DO hope he is.

Read and noted. The Group is probably an affiliate of al Qaeda. Thanks for posting the article Cal.

Trouble is you don't know who you can trust anymore. Best we stay out of it and -eventually - Syria will sort itself out one way or the other. They never appreciate any help we offer. IMO both sides are as bad as the other. If the rebels want peace they have a strange way of showing it. Thanks Cal.

Cal, thank you for the article - this comes as no news to me, the war in Syria is a part of Sunni conquest of the Middle East. Everywhere you can see secular rulers are gone and replaced by Islamists. Syria is lucky that it relies on Iran with its Hesbola thugs, otherwise Assad would be gone long time ago.

The war in Syria is part ot the West's conquest of the Middle East.. NATO,Turkey and Israel finance, arm and train the Sunni fundamentalists in order to replace the regime in Damascus with an obedient one, It's adirty story disguised with lots of lies and falsehood.

Same element that distablized Iraq, Libya, and now Syria. West, Israel, NATO, and the UN. The more things change the more they remain the same.
