Syria has been smoldering now for months.In fact as we wrote even before the demonstrations,the Obama administration was smoking the funny stuff,when they sent an Ambassador to Damascus.
The idea was to coax Assad away fromIran,reduce his support for Hezbollah and then make peace with Israel.What pie-in-the-sky!
Assad is a clone of his father-a murderer-supporter of terrorism,and a manipulator of people like Sen. Kerry.The failure by Obama to read the psyche of Arab leaders,caused our friend Mubarek to bite the dust with an outcome unclear.We attacked Libya and expected victorey in a week,and now the French are suing for negotiations.We lost an opportunity to speak up and help the demonstators in Tehran,and now we are ineffective in the battle to get rid of Assad,because we have mixed feelings as to whether he should go or pray for"REFORM".
I AM TOTALLY AMAZED AND APPRECIATIVE FOR THE ROLE OF THE EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE WSJ.
The current controversy is sometimes difficult to follow,and the bully pulpit of the President with his silk tongue, makes coming to an informed opinion even more difficult.Add to this the talking heads on MSNBC and CNN and you have the feeling of impending gloom.
Fortunately the freshmen of the GOP,and the WSJ, have kept the Rep. leadership in line with what America wants-not because I say so, but because the election of 2010 sent a clear message.If they give in on taxes, they will deserve to lose the WH and Congress
