"There is a new spirit in the Middle East, a real chance for peace. Will Syria be left on the sidelines or give up its support for terror, leave Lebanon alone, support the Iraqi government and make a decision in favor of peace?" If Syria takes this course it will have a chance for an agreement on the Golan Heights, but if it doesn't, "I don't see how it can be part of this process," he said. Summing up Hadley I'd state it like this: 'Accept American politics in Iraq and Lebanon, then maybe we can give you a piece of Israel.' How much more must it become evident that the American "responsibility for Israel" has turned into paternalism and subordination?
