Syria is in A Dream World
By Micah Halpern

Friday August 24, 2007

I've Been Thinking:

According to a Syrian newspaper, the United States is pushing Israel into war with Syria.

That is absolutely absurd and there are three reasons why:

# 1: The United States cannot force Israel - they can nod in agreement or disagreement, but nothing more.
# 2: Israel is trying to get a read on Syria and find out what the real intentions of the Syrians are.
# 3: Syrian leader Bashar Assad is hanging on by the skin of his teeth, he has no idea what to do next. Iran and Hezbollah believe that Israel is weak right now and they are pressuring Assad to support them and make a move against Israel.

This report in the Syrian paper is a smoke screen for Assad. If Assad should make a decision and move on Israel his action will be perceived as justified.

This report puts into perspective just how difficult it is to anticipate Syrian actions.
