"The new Taliban are in Syria."

"...Jordan's King Abdullah warned today that those who think the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad will fall in weeks don't know the situation on the ground. He expects Assad will hold on (Smorgasbord) for at least the first half of 2013 (do we hear 'second half'?...Sold to that other, short & scared potentate with medals!)  . And he cautioned that even if that government falls and is replaced by a strong and effective new administration (which is doubtful) it could take years to clean out the jihadists that have established themselves inside Syria's war-torn territory. Al Qaeda has established itself there, he said, and added, "The new Taliban we are going to have to deal with are in Syria." ..."
