The assassination of a political leader. The forming of alliances. Where have I heard this one before?
Along with Steve Soto, I can't quite tell on what grounds the Bush Administration is going after Syria for the assassination of Hariri. It seems forced and over the top, and when combined with our recent saber rattling towards Iran, a little unnerving. I'm still not sure whether Bush is audacious and stupid enough to start another war (a much bigger war), or whether he is just ratcheting up the rhetoric. I'm also not very confident that he can do the latter without also starting the former. [my emphasis]

Note to John: Yes, he is.
So, Syria and Iran are moving closer together, thanks to (p)resident Dicknose and CondoLIEzza and their stupid threats. Now let's see . . . Iraq is sandwiched between Syria and Iran. The borders are relatively porus. If I were an Iranian or Syrian 'insurgent', I think I found a way to bedevil the Americans. Why not send our people into Iraq to harass the American supply lines? Why not try to form an alliance with the Shi'ite majority in Iraq? Do you think the Shi'ia majority (remember the 'democratic elections' last month) might be convinced to throw the Americans out? Could a 'Greater Persia' be somewhere in the future? I'm pretty sure both eventualities will come to pass.
And more on the stupidity front from DemVet:
It was a common article of faith, I seem to recall out here in the left side of blogtopia (y! sctw!) that the whole Mess in Mesopotamia would become THE recruiting ground for al-Qaeda in the middle east. Well, hate to say "I told you so" but...
[. . .]. . . "Islamic extremists are exploiting the Iraqi conflict to recruit new anti-U.S. jihadists," CIA Director Porter J. Goss told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
I guess that Goss either says things like this when he's pretty sure that Preznit Rhetorical Retard is out cutting brush or asleep. Because talking like that could get his ass sent to the old CIA directors home unceremoniously...why, you'd almost think that someones policies might have been at [gasp] fault. A mistake might have been made. Wait for it, Elizabeth, I'm comin' to join ya...the rapture is here!

Because you know, the terrorists have no idea that there are others like them so, shhhhh, don't let on we know. Putz.
Truly, Rumsfeld is an imbecile. I'm guessing that he's still referring to them as "dead enders", and refuses to believe than any will stand up to him and Beloved Leader.

When people operate in a vacuum for so long, they begin to believe that everybody does. That's why they can spout bullshit at us (Iraq, Social Security, etc) and believe we'll swallow every bit of it, every time. They think, and the MSM (Murdoch Seduced Media - ©TCF) further's the theory, that people won't connect the dots and figure out what Chimpy Inc. is trying to do to this country.
Unfortunately, 51% of this great nation is swallowing the bullshit whole. I'm just waiting to hear 'evidence' that Syria and Iran are connected to 9/11.
