#1 The Independent - all the equivalence thats fit to print. Otherwise this is just the Left whining that they don't like the new rules.

Joke (slightly recycled): How can you tell if you have arrived at SF International Airport?

A: You can still hear the whine after the airplane's engines have stopped.

#2 What is not said is all the NSA material that is probably on hand which shows direct Syrian involvement in the killing. We're not about to reveal collections methods......yet. Should be worth the price when the Pres goes to Congress for the authorization for the use of force.

#3 The Bush administration should ... imitate the Reagan administration's successful policy with Libya.

Couldn't agree more. A few airstrikes on the ol' presidential palace would probably do wonders for the Syrian leadership's attitude & willingness to cooperate.

#4 This is the same idiotarian whose article on NorK I posted last week. He's a limp dick apologist for despots: they're just misunderstood!
If odious regimes such as Syria are never rewarded for anything positive, they have no incentive to behave better
And what have they done that's positive, invade Lebanon? What an idiot.

#5 This one crosses the line between stupidity and support for the despots. NYT...look behind you. The line is waaaay back there.

There is a part of me that likes seeing the NYT come out of the closet like this. The same part of me that enjoyed seeing Dean get DNC chair.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
