US/Syria: What's Behind Washington's War Of Words?
Radio Free Europe, Czech Republic - 4-16-03

Analysts say the U.S. rhetoric against Syria is unprecedented. Raymond Tanter, a professor at the University of Michigan and an expert on rogue regimes, told RFE/RL: "The president, the vice president, the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, the national security adviser and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff have all issued threats and warnings to Syria over the last week. This is unheard-of with respect to U.S.-Syrian relations. Never before have those high-level officials made those kinds of statements."

ELEPHANT EMAIL: "James Bob" atjanus006@yahoo.com

Another left-wing propoganda hate site that beautifully illustrates a point I've tried to make time and time again: Democrats have no issues.

I guess the Democrat issue of Clinton's eight years of peace and prosperity doesn't count?

"Blame the Republicans for everything," is the party motto, because thinking up a good platform to run a campaign on would require thinking.

I do blame Republicans & Democrats for this corporate war. Obviously you are not familiar with this website. Thinking is required to view this website.

Keep on spitting out those bold face lies,

Which lies? I can't keep up with all the Bush administration lies

while us Republicans laugh it up in the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives

I can't be a left wing Democrat -- I believe in divided government.

(maybe that means nobody is listening to your message).

No, nobody counted my vote.
