Arab League Warning on Syria Sanctions
2003-10-13
The Arab League warned yesterday that an eventual US decision to impose sanctions on Syria would increase tension in the region.
"We think you should just leave it as placid as it has been..."
Such a decision would make chances for peace more remote and block any serious dialogue between the United States and Syria, the Arab League said in a statement.
And they've been so productive so far!
The White House lifted its opposition to a resolution, adopted Wednesday by a US congressional committee, which calls for sanctions against Syria based on accusations it supports terrorism, making it likely to pass in the House of Representatives. The move, which comes just after the Israeli aggression against Syria raises questions about the issue of the double campaign targeting Syria, from both the United States and Israel, the statement said. The House International Relations Committee voted Wednesday in favor of diplomatic and economic sanctions.

#2  I just love this gambit. These professional liars, far better than anyone else, know that there is not now, nor will there ever be, any ME peace as long as Israel exists amidst populated Arab "countries." They dangle this sacrosanct "peace" word in front of the West for that patented Pavlovian response... and then do whatever they please. Prior to Dubya, we fell for this stupid parlor trick every time.

But now the gig is up. We have a Prez who knows it's just some fucktard behind a curtain with a microphone and amplifier -- prolly purchased at his local Radio Shack. So piss off, Arab League Oz, we've got some business to attend to here.

#1  I don't know that any country should be force to hold "serious talks" with Syria and North Korea at the same time. That would be a hate crime.
