As the title says:
BBC News - Syria crisis: Al-Nusra pledges allegiance to al-Qaeda
The Arab Spring is turning into a right mess, and Islamic jihadists are probably more active than any time since 9/11
Is American foreign policy correct/effective at dealing with jihadism ? Should Ireland be concerned / what action can we take ?
Personally I think that US foreign policy needs to be questioned, and I'd favour even more intervention (backed up with economic development). I also think Ireland should get involved , even to the extent of giving up our neutrality.
