The Free Syrian Army or FSA (mostly consisting of Al-Qaeda fighters), trained by the GCC and heavily funded by CIA and MI6, has recently expressed its intention to spread terrorist attacks in neighboring Lebanon as well.   Their prime target - Hezbollah.

A representative of FSA spoke to the  London-based daily newspaper Ash-Sharq-al-Awsat stating that the "FSA would expand the proxy war in Syria to 'the heart' of Beirut’s southern suburb of Dahiyeh," a Hezbollah stronghold.

According to some sources, FSA is reportedly holding 13 members of Hezbollah captive in Homs.

No better example of casting stones from a glasshouse.  While the U.S. is heavily involved in a brutal proxy war against Syria and training hardened terrorists to unleash chaos and destruction, last month it accused Hezbollah of "deep involvement" in Syria to help Assad's Government.  Most likely the purpose of this accusation was to impose sanctions on Syria.

Hezbollah has already signed a declaration with the Lebanese Government confirming that it will keep Lebanon out of this conflict;  Lebanon's stance has thus been very neutral. Despite that, a large number of armed men comprising of the FSA and Al-Qaeda had twice barged into Lebanon, attacking a Lebanese army post in the North along its border with Syria last September.    This was reported by the
Daily Star of Lebanon.

FSA and its large number of foreign Al-Qaeda militants are frustrated.  Being unable to make any significant headway in Syria since more than a year despite the efforts of their trainers and financiers, they have decided to involve Lebanon as well.  Yet they have achieved no great success.  Earlier this month, a large number of CIA's proxy fighters were killed at the Lebanon / Syria border.

It's interesting to read the findings of investigative journalist, Seymour Hersh, back in 2007 that such a strategy was already in the pipeline.  Efforts were underway by the United States, Israel, and Saudi Arabia to recruit an 'army' of extremist-mercenaries to confront Hezbollah, destabilize and overthrow Assad in Syria and create a united front of Sunni fanatics against Iran.

Another excellent analysis by Tony Cartalucci on Global Research in May 2012 titled "Lebanon's Turn?" is worth reading.  Quote: "The forces recruited for this effort would come from the ranks of the CIA-created 'Arab foreign legion,' Al Qaeda itself – extremist groups fresh back from fighting US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, including listed terror organizations like the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) from Libya ....... While being depicted as violence 'spilling over' from Syria, it is clear that the violence is indigenous, sectarian in nature, and directly related to the larger conflict envisioned by US-Israeli-Saudi machinations in 2007 – pitting Sunnis against Shi’ia."

A smart leader like Hassan Nasrullah had sensed exactly the same.  Almost 5 years ago, he accused Bush and his White House fanatics working with Israel to "instigate fitnah" (meaning insurrection and fragmentation within Islam).

Needless to say, if you piece together the observations of Hersh, Cartalucci and Nasrullah, the efforts of the West, GCC leaders and their mercenaries are identical at present as we watch and read almost daily.   The process is underway with the possibility of getting far worse in future, and the spillover being beyond Syria and Lebanon.

It's the nuisance value of Al-Qaeda that makes it a great friend of the US.  "A friend in need is a friend indeed."   To ignite sectarian violence and an atmosphere of polarization across the Middle-East (and the Muslim world at large) has been America's dream.  Its acknowledgement by a member of the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) confirms it beyond all doubts.   CFR is one of the most crooked and calculating independent organizations within the US that provides "daily analysis of foreign policy issues facing the nation."  Ed Husain of the CFR and an expert in Middle-East studies writes: "The Syrian rebels would be immeasurably weaker today without al-Qaeda in their ranks .. The influx of jihadis brings discipline, religious fervor, battle experience from Iraq, funding from Sunni sympathizers in the Gulf, and most importantly, deadly results."
