Is Syria Already Set In U.S. & U.K. Sights ?
Ignoring in the first instance the insane, the imbecilic, the infantile, the illiterate, the ill informed, the stupid, and the senile -- who among us ever believed that Condoleza Rice was [as claimed] simply showing Jack Straw some Southern hospitality, when he took off to travel from the UK to the US earlier this week and took up her so called, cordial invitation to 'come calling' ?
Well now we know that those of us who sniffed the whiff of some trouble & strife being stirred up for someone, were bang on the button.
And that 'someone' it seems, is -- surprise, surprise -- yet one more of Israel's near neighbours; President Bashar al-Assadd's, Syria.
Sound sort of a 'same old, same old' scenario to anyone else besides This Old Brit ?
Then put aside a little time to peruse this particular piece from today's Sunday Mirror.
Here's the dateline, headline and by-line.
23 October 2005U.S. and UK urge action against Syria over Hariri murder
By Lin NoueihedBEIRUT (Reuters)
As the rabid Donald Rumsfeld once infamously informed us all - to paraphrase - "shit happens".
But first, it needs to be stirred. Eh ?
Here's some more from the Mirror.
The United States and Britain ratcheted up pressure on Syria on Sunday, saying a U.N. probe implicating it in the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri was "very serious" and the world must act.
Hah. That's apt.
The crooked cabals currently controlling both the UK and US governments are past masters at 'acting'. As should be expected of course, since they've been posing and playing the parts of proper politicians for a rather prolonged period -- and succeeding [so far] in pulling way too much wool over far too many folk's eyes.
In fact they've gradually gotten so good at playing their respective, repulsive and revolting roles that they've even managed to outperform the 'old pro' himself -- rambling, old Ronald Reagan.
But let's get back to the present for a peek at our possibly mutual future -- to coin another new Old Brit phrase.
Eh, what ?
"I am quite sure that when the international community gets together we will decide what to do but it can't be ... just left lying on the table," Rice said.
"This really has to be dealt with."
Then look at this.
Straw, who has been touring Alabama with Rice, said: "The report indicates that people of a high level of this Syrian regime were implicated."
He added: "We also have evidence from the ... report of false testimony being given by senior people in the regime.
This is very serious."
Ahem. Again, look at the last line.
Damned right, Jack. It is very serious.
Many, may even say stark staring, stupe-effing-fyingly so. Whilst simultaneously wondering -- whether or not this scary 'shoulder-to-shoulder' dynamic duo, definitely share some sort of dual, weirdo death wish?
But even if it's true, why in the name of all that's sane should they settle on such a sick, sick, sick one ?
I mean -- actively and voluntarily seeking to sodding stretttttttttch ourselves to death?
Finally, having finished reading Richard's most recent report - it's for you to decide for yourself; are these sleazey, slimey serial liars now trying to sell us - still more war ?
