3. To another bad place. There are 3 countries where we want regime change now
Edited on Sat Mar-26-11 02:37 PM by Catherina
Libya, Syria, Iran.

Syria could qualify for the silver package but, despite the desire for regime change there, I think right now we prefer the Asad regime to any alternative because he keeps tight control on the borders. The House of Saud is doing all it can to exacerbate the situation and destabilize Syria now.

This is where things get dangerous because so many egos are involved. The House of Saud is still furious at the White House for not backing Mubarak with more force.

So much has changed since Vogue magazine ran its Feb 25 splash of how Asama Assad was putting "a modern face on her husbands regime."

Syria is burning. Official State media is trying to blame the uprising on the Palestinians

None of this is heading to anywhere good.
