The Next Round
Many of us wondered why the Bush administration seemed to be going so easy on the Syrian government in the last two years and I guess it must have something to do with the fact that Syria is a rotating member of the UN Security Council for the rest of this year, with another factor being some Foggy Bottom notion of "balance" in regards to Israel.
Now it appears the administration is finally getting serious with Damascus
over issues of WMD's and anti-coalition guerillas fighters crossing into Iraq.
I certainly hope the WMD's are known to be stored somewhere (most likely eastern Syria and the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon) and the knowledge is classified for obvious security reasons. It would truly be disastrous if we let Hezbollah or any other Damascus-based terrorist group get to them first.
