"OUT OF STEP":

Bush criticizes Syria, Iran as instable (JENNIFER LOVEN, February 17, 2005, Associated Press)

President Bush criticized Syria and Iran on Thursday as destabilizing forces in the Middle East but stopped short of threatening new U.S. action against either. Expressing sympathy with Israeli worries about a nuclear-armed Iran, the president said America would protect its ally.

Bush said Syria was "out of step" with progress being made in the Mideast. The president cited the 15,000 troops that Syria has in Lebanon and accused Syria of harboring terrorist groups and assisting Iraqi insurgents.


Such is the success of the President's policy in the Middle East that for the first time in its history you can truthfully say that states like Syria and Iran are out of step with the rest.

Interesting what our precious progressives regard as progressive, and what they reject.
