Is US Setting Up Syria Next? See What President Assad Says ...

It certainly seems to some of us that Syria's being set up for something; something special -- courtesy BushCo. USA.

And, as always, aided and ever so adeptly abetted by the same old, same old usual set of suspects -- such as Britain's own boy blunder, Tony (the bloody liar), Blair.

Since whenever master George shouts shit, poor poodle Tony fast tries his best to; toilet roll at the ready -- be his trousers still on or not.

So here's some of the stuff some in the so called 'West' are saying.

US issues Lebanon 'plot' warning

The United States has said there is "mounting evidence" that Syria, Iran and Hezbollah are planning to topple the Lebanese government.

The White House said Syria hoped to stop the formation of an international tribunal to try suspects in the killing of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri.

Spokesman Tony Snow said any attempt to destabilise the Lebanese government would violate UN resolutions.
Sounding ever so faintly familiar? It certainly should do.

The Syrian ambassador to America responds, shortly & sweetly, as follows.

Syria's ambassador to the US rejected the allegations as "ridiculous".

Read the rest of the story here.

Then to see and hear for yourself what Syria's President Assad recently said to respected veteran BBC war/foreign correspondent John Simpson, watch & listen to his awesome Assad interview.

We believe you'll find it well worth your while, as we're sure you'll enlighten yourself -- more than just a little.

Heck, who the hell can tell?

You could honestly be truly surprised; possibly, even pleasantly.

Here's Assad's interview link. Click it to see it.

And remember; Richard reports. You decide.

I read in The Guardian this evening that Blair was going to visit Syria. I don't know how this will play out with Bush and the Lebanese neo-cons who accuse the syrians of all their troubles but one thing is sure: if the attack on Iran is not looking good may be Blair will be sent to Syria in order to make nice promises for which the Syrians are hungry since they were designated outcast by Bush and co. Blair's promises will be in exchange of Syria's cooperation in case of a war on Iran.
The two approaches, threatening Syria and at the same time sending Blair there on a mission may seem contradictory but they are not. They first make the threat in order to make the other party, Syria, more compliant.

I think with the fiasco in Iraq, the warmongerers that are Bush and Blair need to put some water in their wine (as we say in French) and play the syrian card. I don't know how this will work out. It all depends on two things: what Blair will be promising the syrians and how much the syrians are actually desperate to cave in...
Another thing is sure: Blair's promises are no promises, you cannot take this man's word for a real promise...

Good point, Sophia. Good cop, bad cop, eh?!

And you are right in that Blair and the others have no credibility but they get away with continual lying because stressed people are desperate for good news- they want to believe.

It is almost axiomatic that whatever these creeps say will happen is exactly what WONT happen.

You can't make a deal with the devil, as they say. There's no point.

Blair is still running errands for Bush I see. If you ask me, that's about all he is fit for. Though I wouldn't trust him to errands for me personally. He'd be bound to get the change wrong - at least.

Here's the latest, in case you've not read it. Nice work btw, Richard. That video interview WAS worth seeing, That man could give Bush lessons in the English language ... but come to think of it ... who couldn't?

Syria denies Lebanon plot claim

Syria has denied White House claims that, together with Iran and Hezbollah, it is planning to try to topple the Lebanese government.
The "rumours" spread by the US were wrong, the foreign ministry said.

A Syrian government newspaper described the comments as "pure vilification".

The US believes Syria may be aiming to block a tribunal over the killing of Lebanese ex-PM Rafik Hariri, in which Syria has been implicated.

On Wednesday, White House spokesman Tony Snow said the Bush administration was "increasingly concerned" by "mounting evidence" of a plan to bring the Lebanese government down.

He did not give further information, saying it was classified.

Damascus rejected the claims in a foreign ministry statement.

"The rumours put about by the US administration according to which Syria, Iran and Hezbollah are seeking to destabilise the situation in Lebanon are wrong," the statement said.

And an editorial in the government Baath newspaper said: "This pure vilification is meant to raise turmoil in Lebanon and cause fallout with Syria."

Too true, he could give Bush English language lessons, Rex. He could teach him a lot about how to lead a country, too.
