    Pentagon Favors Air Strikes on Syria to Overthrow Assad, Free Lebanon

    The Pentagon is now convinced that air strikes on Syria have become necessary to overthrow the Assad regime, liberate Lebanon and stop support of insurgents waging a guerrilla war against American forces in Iraq as well as Palestinian militants against Israel, the U.S.-sponsored Al Hurra TV network says.

    "Political action to deal with the problem of Syria's presence in Lebanon and its support of terrorism against Israel and Iraq is no longer deemed effective," Al Hurra quoted American intelligence sources as saying, according to slain ex-Premier Hariri's Al Mustaqbal newspaper on Friday.

    "Diplomacy as a means to deal with countries supporting terrorism is over and out. The situation is now open to all eventualities as far as Syria is concerned," the sources were quoted as saying by the Arabic-language Al Hurra.

    "Resolving problems with Syria now requires changing the Syrian regime or mounting air attacks similar to those staged against Afghanistan and Sudan in August 1998 to wipe out terrorist centers once and for all," the U.S. intelligence sources were quoted as saying.

    "The U.S. central command for Iraq and Afghanistan is closely following the situation in Lebanon and Syria and senior Pentagon officials are now convinced that hitting terrorist targets in Syria is necessary," Al Hurra said.

    "The elimination of Syrian-supported terrorism groups is now deemed 'strategically vital' for stability in the Middle east, particularly Iraq, which is unattainable at present under the current Syrian regime," the station said.

    Perhaps they don't understand that decapitation attacks are ineffective in countries where the government has popular support?

    And now that I think about it, I believe that assassination is against international law.

    I'm averse to consider the reprecussions of air strikes on Syria....

    Well honestly I haven't scoped it yet... but regardless of it's relative strength or weakness this could only lead to greater regional destabilization I would think....

    This is why people were saying its gonna be another Vietnam. At least it hasnt taken them 5 to 6 years to realize the neighboring countries are a super highway for weapons and men. When we covertly started coup in Cambodia so we could get at the vietnamese easier, look what happened. Pol pot & the khmer rouge strolled in and murdered 5 million cambodian civilians. After the US pulled out the Vietnamese had to invade Cambodia to stop it.
