Vigilant on comeback of int’l terrorists

(People's Daily Online)

08:04, August 28, 2012

Sustained unrest in West Asia and North Africa especially the deteriorated situation in Syria has ignited the flame of international terrorist forces.

The situation in Syria has obviously influenced the terrorism. In Feb. 2012, the leader of "Al-Qaeda" Ayman al-Zawahiri issued a statement, agitating the so-called "holy war" to overthrow the current Syrian Government. U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned that the "Al-Qaeda" is expanding to Syria.

The United States and European countries get anxious about the risk of Syria's becoming a new battlefield of international terrorist forces because once the situation is out of control, the chemical weapons in Syria will probably fall into the hands of terrorists. However, these countries are inclined to evade the problem of terrorism in the Syrian civil strife out of consideration of their strategic interests.

Since the turmoil broke out in West Asia and North Africa, the international community has reason to be alert to the risk of the comeback of the international terrorist forces judging from the chaotic development of the terrorism.

The security vacuum of Sinai Peninsula in Egypt provided rooms for "Al-Qaeda" and other terrorist forces. These terrorist organizations regarded Sinai Peninsula as their new base area, continually attacking Western tourists and damaging the gas pipelines leading to Israel.

The branch of "Al-Qaeda" in Iraq has resurged after the U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq and has a rapid development. It not only committed horrific murder cases but also took the opportunity to expand to Syria on a large scale.

The branch of "Al-Qaeda" in Arabian Peninsula took advantage of the regime change of Yemen to fight against the Yemeni Government. Many U.S. officials believed that the most direct terrorist threat faced by the United States will be the branch of "Al-Qaeda" in Arabian Peninsula in the future.
