Syrian demonstrators have attacked and burned down the Danish and Norwegian embassies. As a representative of the White House, Scott McClellan, said, in Syria such violent demonstrations can not happen without the knowledge and support of the government. In other words, this is equivalent to a Syrian attack on Denmark and Norway, both members of NATO. Therebye an attack on NATO, including the United States of America. '

Guys, Syria has attacked you!

Yes, I know. They were a state sponsor of terrorism back in 1999:

“Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, North Korea, Cuba, and Sudan remain the seven governments that the US Secretary of State has designated as state sponsors of international terrorism.”

And we are currently working on number two on the list right now. Gone right to the center. Do you think we can get a bigger coalition this time?

“[9.32] They desire to put out the light of Allah with their mouths, and Allah will not consent save to perfect His light, though the unbelievers are averse.” http://www.hti.umich.edu/k/koran/

Those scary mouths, and cartoonists!

“[59.14] They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified towns or from behind walls; their fighting between them is severe, you may think them as one body, and their hearts are disunited; that is because they are a people who have no sense.”

Yeah, a wall and a border patrol will protect us. {sound of laughter}

You want to know something funny? I know of grocery store that was attacked for zoning violations by a county attorney that was known for using zoning laws to “reward his friends, and attack his enemies,” all for a sign the store had for years. The store went out of business paying fines, the last time I looked the building was a Mosque near a street that used to be named after the president of the Confederate States of America. I guess there are too many rednecks with shotguns still around to riot safely.

Heads up! When they reach critical mass…

“Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It’s good enough for me
It was good for the Hebrew children
It was good for the Hebrew children
It was good for the Hebrew children
And it’s good enough for me
It will bring you out of bondage
It will bring you out of bondage
It will bring you out of bondage
And it’s good enough for me
It will do when the world’s on fire
It will do when the world’s on fire
It will do when the world’s on fire
And it’s good enough for me”

We have too many other fish to fry to militarily fight Syria right now. However, NATO and its allies should press this issue as we did the Hariri assassination. Political pressure alone can topple regimes in some cases, and Syria seems like it is primed for that.

The cartoon in question, which I can’t read, or even see clearly, appears to me to serve only one logical purpose at this time, to inflame Muslims at the very moment when we are barely able to hold Iraq together. The claim that all democratic states must accept such publicly displayed pornography (from the Muslim perspective) as “freedom of speech” is ridiculous; the claim that all states much forbid such “freedom of speech“ is arrogant and exactly what I would expect from a tyrant or mini-tyrant of terror: a government that must allow pornography should still be able to apologize for it.

Should we fail in Iraq it will only work to remove the political pressure, of a free democratic Iraq, to change their neighbors into governments of the people that must face responsibility.

We do not want war with Iran or Syria at this time, or ever, unless we have a real coalition as powerful as the one in WWII, otherwise we can’t hold any progress made in Iraq. And to trust the UN to be that coalition would be stupid beyond belief. NATO is not going to do it either, when the real target is spread throughout the world including Palestine.
