BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE:

Is Syria serious about peace with Israel? (Nicholas Blanford, 11/30/04, The Christian Science Monitor)

Syria is indicating with increasing frequency a willingness to resume peace negotiations with archenemy Israel after more than four years of deadlock.

The revival of the Syrian-Israeli track of the Middle East peace process could help deflect the intense pressure Syria is facing from the international community over its policies toward neighboring Lebanon and Iraq. The conclusion of a peace deal would see the return of occupied Syrian territory and open the country to much-needed economic assistance.


He knows how this all ends otherwise.

Without the ability to unite Syrians around Israel-hatred, the Assad regime falls.

Syria is where the Sunni of Iraq will almost certainly end up, if they can't play nice as the minority.

Perhaps our SS troll...er, friend...ought to go over to Syria. He would be more useful there (or shot).
