Was it a set up? Does anyone know how this will be viewed in Damascus? Maybe Bush was trying to be a tough guy. Maybe someone, somewhere, thinks the
Syrians will respond to this. I don't know. Wouldn't suprise me.
I mean, if President Bush, backed by a simpering Blair, waved his finger in Assad's face and told him to "press Hezbollah to stop doing this sh*t",
it would be quite suprising, unless that's the way things are done, lol.
I dunno. You know how calculating these lot are (politicians, I mean...not Arabs). Maybe this is a new form of 'back-channel'. If we accidentally
overhear Blair calling Ahmadinejad a 'muppet' in Prescott's ear in Parliament, we know something is up.
