Hundreds of Syrian rebels have signed up to fight in the northern and eastern areas of Syria with Al Qaeda against Bassar al-Assad’s forces, according to sources quoted by Reuters.

If the trend continues, the civil war will become more of clear battle between a jihadist terrorist organization and a barbaric dictator, leaving President Barack Obama in more of a bind. Assad’s war crimes have driven President Barack Obama to moral outrage, but the alternative of Al Qaeda is equally unappealing, if not worse.

Up to 100,000 or more jihadists from outside Syria reportedly have joined the war, belated evidence to back up Assad’s claims of three yard ago that the local opposition was led by “foreign terrorists.”
