The Turn of the Screw

"Syria found itself increasingly isolated yesterday as the US and France stepped up their pressure for withdrawal of its forces from neighbouring Lebanon.

"The Syrians are out of step with where the region is going and out of step with the aspirations of the people of the region," the US secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, said at a joint news conference with the French foreign minister, Michel Barnier."

The syrians can't afford to pay the French off so out of Lebanon they go...

It is fascinating how the defeat of Saddam and the subsequent succesful election in Iraq have begun to act as a model for Middle Eastern people sick of the corruption and tyranny which their so called "elites" have foisted on them for the last fifty years.

Even the Palistinians are beginning to realize that a good deal of the mythology which surrounds their cause has been shattered by the willingness of some of the West, post 9-11, to actually work for change throughout the region.

Unlike the Troll of RamallahTM the present Palestinian leadership may have realized that terror is simply never going to work against Israel and that it really is time to talk. If that issue can be solved the Middle East will begin to look rather rosy.

(Which is, of course, impossible because Bush is an idiot and neo-cons are always wrong...)
