On to Damascus?

With the President set to impose sanctions on Syria, Tom Barry warns that the same script used on Iraq might make its way into the news again.

If the neocons get their wish, Barry claims, "it's likely that the Syrian regime will be painted with the same fear-mongering brush used to justify the invasion of Iraq. With Osama bin Laden still on the lam and bedlam in occupied Iraq, the Bush administration needs to refocus public attention on another evildoer - which, not so coincidentally, is also the next preferred target of the Likudniks in Israel."
