They will say, of course, that the Syrian pullout from Lebanon was no credit to Bush. They will say that it was simply becasue of the anger at the assassination of Lebanon's former Prime Minister. But they will omit this quote of Hassad's which was given to Time Magazine. "Assad said: "Please send this message: I am not Saddam Hussein. I want to cooperate."

I think it is quite possible that some very good things may happen as a result of Bush's policies. I also think that it is quite possible that some very bad things may happen. We may see both; life is messy. As an American, it is my cousins that may die in Iraq, and I'm not happy about it and I didn't want them there. And I'm even less happy about the 80,000 or so Iraqi civilians killed in all this mess. Whether anything good comes of it or not (time will tell), my bottom line is that it wasn't justified at the start, and we did it wrong. If I start something that has a 10% chance of success and then it works out, it was still a stupid thing to do. Especially if it gets people killed. If a thousand flowers bloom across the Middle East, it may turn out to be worth it. But it will never turn out to have been a good idea.

don_m must be a miserable person. I sense he is unhappy with the positive events in the Middle East because it might elevate Bush in the eyes of the world. I sense he would be more pleased with bad circumstances--but would never admit it--maybe even to himself.
