WHAT ABOUT SYRIA?

Dr. Jack Wheeler writes:
Last Monday (8/20), Senator Joe Lieberman came quite close, in the op-ed page of the Wall St. Journal, to publicly calling for regime change in Syria.

He couched it as calling for a boycott of Damascus Airport by international airlines as it is "the main terminal for international terror," through which flow foreign suicide bombers to be sent into Iraq and kill Iraqi civilians and American soldiers.

Privately, he wants the "terrorist regime" of Bashar al-Assad removed from power, and is in close consultation on how to do so with the only folks possessing real cajones in the Bush White House, Dick Cheney and his staff.

This is giving the Little Lord Fauntleroys in the seventh floor of the State Department the vapors. Condi has become their stooge, totally wimping out to the permanent (and permanently invertebrate) State bureaucracy. Thus she is blocking any attempt of Cheney and Lieberman's to get Bush to approve a plan for regime change in Syria.

Now it looks like they've got allies, the richest and most influential allies in all the Middle East. The Saudis have decided that the Bashar regime must go, and Cheney and Lieberman are only too happy to accept their help.

  • Easy to say it needs to be done, but hard to do.

    Anytime someone says "regime change", you should head for the exits. Condi is right about this. Unless the Syrians are stupid enough to start open war with the Izzies, they should be left alone.

  • Risky business indeed. Just curious about Saudi Arabia's role in all of this.
