US may take action against Syria
    #2009950 - 10/14/03 11:55 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Richard Perle and the PNACers

10/14/03: (ASSOCIATED PRESS) Pentagon adviser Richard Perle said Tuesday that the recent Israeli attack on an alleged training camp for Palestinian militants in Syria was long overdue and that he would not rule out U.S. military action against the Arab state.

Perle, a close adviser to U.S. President George W. Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, spoke at a Jerusalem conference of conservatives from the United States and Israel.

"President Bush transformed the American approach to terrorism on Sept. 11, 2001, when he said he will not distinguish between terrorists and the states who harbor them," Perle said.

"I was happy to see that Israel has now taken a similar step in responding to acts of terror that originate in Lebanese territory by going to the rulers of Lebanon in Damascus."

Israel has said the training camp it targeted in an Oct. 5 airstrike was used by Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group that had carried out a suicide bombing in the Israeli port city of Haifa two days earlier, killing 20 people.

Israel has accused Syria of allowing Palestinian militant groups to train and operate from its territory. The Israeli air strike was the first attack on Syrian soil in three decades.

Perle said he hoped the air strike reflected a new Israeli policy similar to the Bush doctrine.

"We have problems with the Syrians who continue to support terrorism. We have to find a way to get them to stop," Perle later told The Associated Press.

Asked whether this would include possible U.S. military action against Syria, he said: "Everything's possible."

Perle said it would not be difficult to commit forces to Syria despite heavy U.S. troop commitments to Iraq and the Korean peninsula, along with a continued presence in areas such as the Balkans and Liberia.

"Syria is militarily very weak," he said.

Perle stepped down from his position as chair of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board this spring, following allegations that he had used his position with the Pentagon to further business deals in Singapore and the United States. He is still a member of the board.

Perle said that the Bush administration's "road map" to peace between Israel and the Palestinians by 2005 had failed, but that he supported the ideas Bush introduced in a speech on June 24, 2002.

In that speech, Bush outlined his vision for the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, and called for a change in Palestinian leadership.

Damn, I was hoping the complete clusterfuck Iraq turned into would've put "the crazies" on the back foot.

Must be more profit for the corporations in the invading countries business than we realise.

How do you keep a bee from stinging you?

By throwing rocks at the beehive?

I do not find innocence in either the Jewish or Palestinian perspective. Personally, if it was like Hawaii or something, I could see why they would be fighting, but the West Bank and surrounding area is the geographic equivalent to my left ass cheek (and only slightly more religously significant). But seriously, the problem is not that America is doing the "wrong" thing. It's that, even if they're doing the "right" thing, they're doing it for the WRONG reasons. (or else why aren't they helping people more deserving in other parts of the world??) None of these actions will curtail terrorism, they will just piss off the bees.

Which is after all what this is all about...

The crazies in the white house have made it patently obvious that they couldn't give a saggy-arsed fuck about stopping terrorism.

Lysergic: Has invading Iraq stopped suicide bombers in Iraq?




No, it has not. However, it has stopped Saddam from paying 30,000$US to the families of suicide bombers (read: Martyrs) that blow themselves up. I wish everyone would understand that Islam is a peaceful religion. Hence, the suicide bombings of night clubs. Goddamned misinformed Americans *hugs Saddam* I understand you.

nice try at misdirection. I think the point was that bombing Syria won't stop suicide bombers operating from there. it will probably make it worse, much worse, but you'd like that wouldn't you? as long as it's not your ass on the line out there, you're content to sit at your computer and scream for more war.

Ah,I see the shade of gray here. One nation is built on peace, the other group attacked this nation the day after it was founded. One nation has biblical (historical) ties to the land, another people's religious texts don't even mention it (jerusalem). One group specifically targets military threats, the other one indiscriminatly bombs women and children in crowded marketplaces. One group has nuclear weapons that they don't even acknowledge exist, let alone threaten people with it, the other group shoots rockets down from the Golan heights to kill innocent civilians.


You've opened my eyes! I see it now! it's the Jews, just as I've always said! Damn peaceloving Jews that open their borders to arabs to allow them to work decent jobs in their non-Islamic Extremist dictatorship, those same friggin kikes that have had to defend themselves against most ofteh arab nations attacking and killing their families. Bah! I see clearly now! It's "grey"! It's kinda shady, which option should I go with? Terrorist murderes, or people making someting out of their lives there? Gosh... help me, oh liberal masters!
