Syria: Timing Is Everything

You say its gonna happen now
But when exactly do you mean?
See I've already waited too long
And now all hope is gone
--The Smiths

Syria pulls out a stunner right before the US asks for its help on Iraq. Gotta hand it to that no-neck jackass Assad on this one. If there was ever a time you were going to get away with one, its right now:

WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President George W. Bush accused Syria and Iran of fomenting violence and instability in Lebanon, as he condemned the assassination of Lebanese cabinet minister Pierre Gemayel.


Bush did not apportion direct blame but called for an investigation into "those people and those forces" behind the killing of the anti-Syrian Christian leader.

Good timing....now what? The US won't ask for their help with the insurgency? Right now, all the US has is pragmatism on its plate. Ideological wars about democracy are done for this administration and realpolitik is back in fashion this season.

Is the US going to go to the plate for Lebanese freedom while US soldiers are being gunned down in the streets? No chance.....Let's hear the words "honourable peace" enter the vocab and watch a possible "Nixon-China" moment come to pass with the proxy war puppet masters.

Hell, even Kissinger is making a cameo on this stage.....Shit is about to get real, son.
You see the liberty is free but just for some
How you a gangster and you scared to bust your gun?
For the call, trust your fam' and trust nobody at all
Seein' brothers gettin' struck down
You better duck down!
