The clock ticks, the vice tightens, will it fall from within or without?
There are a lot of Iraq's old Baath regime living it up in syria, including most of ol' Saddam's family. Oh, and those hundreds of semi-truck convoys that traveled into Syria in the months before our return, those can't all have been household goods, can they?
I've posted here about reports of the semi-trailers full of Dollars, $100 bills in boxes on pallets taken into that country, the likelyhood of finding the WMDs right there, and the seaside resort surrounded by anti aircraft guns and missiles with crews where many of these people live now. And from where they run and fund the "insurgency".
I would rather see Syria heal itself and join the civilized world by turning over the dross from Iraq which they have been hiding these years. In the meantime, the Syrian pound might be worth watching.
All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
Sir Winston Churchill
"Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose."
Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.
