    What's the plan for Syria?

    I'm getting burned out with the news. Anyone care to brief me on Syria? What's the latest?

    I dont know what to think, I'd prefer not to invade but IMO if they harbor terrorists and Iraqi leaders, why shouldn't we?

    Otherwise, what national security did we accomplish by kicking Iraq's ass? The Iraqi leaders could weasle back into power when we leave if we dont flush them out.

    I dont quite know what to think on this one......

    No way we invade Syria unless we get hard evidence they are supporting terrorists.

    Yea, that's the side I'm leaning towards. We cant get carried away otherwise the world will be even more against us, especially the Arab world.


    So is the only news this: Bush: Syria, dont help Iraq or else.

    Syria: Or else what? We are doing nothing wrong.


    I like GW, but his threats have a way of backing us into a corner.

    LCP...remember...we don't have our hands on the Iraqi leadership that fled the "area". Syria was named one of the axes of "evil". I believe W. is fireing one across their bow to see how they react. We shurely seemed to have gotten N. Koreas attention.

    How so? I haven't heard. Are they wanting to play nicely with others now?

    I don't know about "others" but they are softening their stance on the negotiations. They wanted "one on ones" with the U.S. and we wouldn't hear of it. That's what their sabre rattleing was all about.

    One on one? What's that? Do they mean they want to match us Nuke for Nuke?

    :nono:... I'm not up to speed on just what the negotiations are about "I believe nuclear testing"...but they have been insisting on speaking only with the U.S. in them and we have other parties involved that they don't want participating. Or...maybe if we talk one on one with them it will automatically give them an undeserved world status. This was being covered quite a bit before the war started but died down after we went into Iraq.

    Their "one on one" meetings were nothing but attempted extortion. We didn't bite, and they've shut up somewhat since we started truly rolling across Iraq. They blustered thinking we'd pay them off to keep them quiet while we were "bogged down" in Iraq. Since we didn't get too bogged, I don't think they are prepared to risk bringing our full attention down on them.
