President Bush May Soon Order Aerial Attacks on Insurgent Military Bases Inside Syria


By IIMCR, http://blog.iimcr.org

Washington---Within the past several weeks, President Bush has come within hours of ordering U.S. military forces to conduct aerial bombing raids against insurgent training camps inside Syrian territory that are being used by foreign fighters as a staging ground in which to enter Iraq and kill American soldiers. But Secretary of State, Condeleeza Rice and representatives from the Central Intelligence Agency have until now prevailed in convincing President Bush that Syrian President Bashar Assad can be reasoned with, according to high ranking officials within the Bush administration.

Heretofore Secretary of State Rice and the CIA have advocated patience in dealing with the Syrian leader on two accounts. For one, following September ll, 2001 Syrian officials, particularly its chief of military intelligence, Asef Shawkat, Assad’s brother-in-law, now a key suspect in the death of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri, worked closely with U.S. counter-terrorism agencies. Secondly, CIA officials have told the White House that a U.S. military attack inside Syria may destabilize the Assad government and there is no guarantee that a worse government, possibly an Islamist fundamentalist one, might replace it. Israeli intelligence officials have also expressed similar concerns to their Western counterparts.

White House insiders, however, report the reservoir of patience for Syria is all but evaporating by the hour. One official known to be strongly advocating a strike against Syria is President Bush’s national intelligence director, John Negroponte.

In recent months, President Assad has been shown unmistakable evidence by representatives of the U.S. government of insurgent military training camps that are being operated inside Syrian territory. Assad has reviewed such information and repeatedly promised to do something about it. But to date he has done little or nothing to quell the insurgent attacks, most of which are comprised by Saudi nationals.

Ah..the next step in der Fuhrer's plan..it vill get him back on top of de polls. Yawohl!!

Hail the Furher...er.. I mean the Chief!!!

Doesn't Congress have to give its approval for this expansion of the illegal Iraq war? No more wars for no reason other than Republican greed....Congress, quit funding Bush's wars!!!!

When has bombing another soverign country without approval by
the Congress and their "commander" the American people been legal?
Bush has already put all of our military at risk with so many illegal
uses of illegal weapons, lies to start the wars, etc that his "caring"
is laughable. It seems that the blood-thirsty neocons and Bush cabal
need their blood-fix again. Did it ever occur to everyone concerned
that killing begets killing and there will be no end until the whole
world is at each others' throats if we dont stop these worshippers
of evil? alcyone
