Nothing I love like hearing my country described as “the homeland”! Not to mention, why would I believe anything my government tells me?
The US says some of its air strikes in Syria aimed to disrupt an imminent attack on the West by al-Qaeda veterans from the so-called Khorasan group.
The raids in Aleppo province came hours after the US, backed by Arab allies, launched the first air strikes against Islamic State (IS) militants in Syria.
The Aleppo raids were carried out by the US alone, the US military said.
The Khorasan group was in “the final stages of plans to execute major attacks”, a US military spokesman said.
Lt Gen William Mayville, the Pentagon’s operations chief, said the group’s targets were “either in Europe or the homeland”.
