WHO KNEW SHE WAS EUROPEAN?:

Forget Pelosi. What about Syria? (Robert Malley, April 11, 2007, LA Times)

UNDERTAKING HER first major diplomatic foray, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got an earful. As she met with Syrian President Bashar Assad, she came under immediate, stinging attack. The White House condemned her encounter as counterproductive, asserting that it undermined U.S. policy aimed at marginalizing a so-called pariah regime.

The charge is, on its face, absurd. The European Union's top diplomatic envoy just visited Syria.


Mr. Malley seems confused about which country he lives in too, eh?

Oh, so the EU has its own policy with respect to Syria, and that policy runs counter to official US policy?

Well then, being our moral, social, and cultrual betters, the EU must be right and the US wrong. Ms. Pelosi was only showcasing the unilateral cowboy nature of the Bush foreign policy, which is clearly against the international consensus. Which nuanced part of Ms. Pelosi's delicate diplomatic stance did you not understand, you vulgar red state hicks?

Malley, the Algerian expert, who spread the "Camp
David and Taba negotiations" were too harsh to
the Palestinians" meme, between the time of the
end of the negotiations and 9/11; in that impartial of publications; the molotov cocktail
