The same shrill voices are calling out that Syria has done nothing positive. Starting with being a US ally in the First Gulf War, Syria has been more and more compliant with international decisions than ever before. Syria withdrew all their soldiers and intelligence officers from Lebanon, but the shrill voices claim that was nothing. Syria resolved their border disputes with Jordan, giving back land Assad's father had taken. Again the shrill voices think this is nothing. Even the ultimate War Hawk Dick Chaney recently said that Syria was doing a good job at securing the border between Iraq and Syria. The shrill voices claim this is nothing. And here is Assad openly calling for peace talks, something that he risks assassination just to say out loud, and the shrill voices say it is nothing and bad-talking his offers. Meanwhile, Israel can't even manage to run a bus between Gaza and the West Bank despite promising Bush. Who is it that is doing nothing towards peace?
