Oh, can we please hear some explanations from all those folks on the left who insisted that Jihadis and secular Arab nationalists can’t work together? “Al-Qaeda and Saddam could never cooperate, ya idjit,” they said. Why? “Because al-Qaeda is fundamentalist and Saddam is secular. Don’t you know anything?”
I’m paraphrasing of course.
Well, now by popular consensus, Jihadi nutbag Iran is working with secular nutbag Syria to use their stygian love child, Jihadi nutbag Hezbollah, to wreak havoc across the region. Indeed, Syria can supposedly tell Hezbollah to stand down tomorrow. Why on earth would fundamentalist whackos take orders from Baathists like Assad? That’s not supposed to be possible.
