- Not content with the terrorist-breeding instability he
caused by invading Iraq, President Bush is plotting with Israel to repeat
the disaster in Syria.
- The diplomatic editor of the London Telegraph reports
(Oct. 5) that the U.S. is aiming at Syrian "regime change." The
British newspaper quotes Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz as saying
that a report blaming Syria for the assassination of a former Lebanese
government official will be the catalyst that starts the ball rolling.
Mofaz says the report will be the pretext for Bush to impose sanctions
on Syria, "beginning with economic sanctions and moving on to others."
- The Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz reports (Oct. 3) that
the Bush administration has asked Israel's government to recommend a successor
for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. No doubt, the Bush administration
will describe Israel's selection of Syria's new president as the workings
- The Stratfor Intelligence Brief reports (Oct. 5) that
Bush's National Security Council is deciding whether to bomb Syrian villages
along what are thought to be "the infiltration routes used by jihadists"
and to have U.S. special forces conduct operations inside Syrian territory.
- Obviously, far from heeding demands from U.S. generals
and congressional members of his own political party for a plan to withdraw
from Iraq, Bush intends to widen the war.
- How can Bush, his National Security Council, and Israel
be so blind to the consequences of destabilizing Syria? A CIA report concluded
that the U.S. invasion of Iraq created a training ground for al-Qaeda.
Doesn't Bush understand that creating chaos in Syria will have the same
- The National Security Council needs to quickly consult
some real Middle East experts before Bush's reckless policies in the face
of seething anti-American sentiment cause the overthrow of U.S. puppet
rulers in Egypt, Jordan, and Pakistan, and dethrone the princes ruling
the American oil protectorates in the Middle East.
- If the Bush administration cannot defeat insurgency in
Iraq, how can it defeat insurgency in Iraq and Syria? In Iraq, Syria, and
Iran? The Bush administration is fanatical, divorced from reality.
- Last week, Lt. Gen. William Odom, former director of
the National Security Agency, said that Bush's invasion of Iraq was "the
greatest strategic disaster in U.S. history." This is quite a distinction
for Bush and his government. Are the morons now going to double the distinction
by attacking Syria and quadruple it by attacking Iran?
- Why don't Congress and the American public understand
that the U.S. cannot afford to worsen the disaster in which it finds itself?
- Nothing better illustrates the reality-denying capability
of the Bush administration than its Secretary of State Condi Rice's speech
at Princeton University on Sept. 30. It is a fantasy speech, devoid of
awareness that "regime change" in Iraq substituted Shi'ite clergy
for a secular ruler. The U.S. secretary of state has no inkling of the
conflict generated among Shi'ite, Sunni, and Kurd by the U.S.-imposed attempt
to produce and adopt a constitution?
- The Bush administration's Middle East policy is the triumph
of ideology over reality. Something must be done to stop Bush before he
mimics in the Middle East Hitler's invasion of Russia. The American people
cannot afford the blood and treasure that the fanatical Bush administration
is willing to squander in the Middle East.
- What can be done about a president who is immune to reason?
A bill of impeachment is a good start.
- The Bush administration has already done more damage
to Americans than the Sept. 11 attacks. The American people and their congressional
representatives must hold Bush accountable before it is too late. The Bush
administration has no intention of stopping with Iraq. At Princeton, Condi
Rice again declared the administration's intention to use U.S. military
force to transform the societies in the Middle East. "Now is not the
time to falter or fade," declared the U.S. secretary of state.
- Such total oblivion to the "greatest strategic disaster
in U.S. history" is far scarier than Muslim terrorists.
