Is Syria Next?
I just overheard John Loftus (someone in the past whom I've found to be quite reliable, and I enjoyed one of his books) say on Fox News Television something to the effect that when Israel informed the White House that it was interested in negotiating with the present government of Syria, (under dictator opthalmologist Assad) over the Golan Heights, the White House told Israel, don't bother negotiating with them they won't be in power for long!
Important Caveat: I was only half-listening in the beginning and all of this is totally unconfirmed. Moreover, perhaps I heard it wrong.
Anyway, if Syria's Criminal Gang does come tumbling down soon, remember where you heard it first!
Update: This article (registration may be required) affirms what Loftus was saying.
Money quote from the article:
"It really wouldn't look good if Israel legitimizes Syria's regime by resuming peace talks when there is talk in Washington about striking Syria militarily," said one Israeli diplomat.
