The fact is, Syria is harboring terrorists who are training insurgents to kill innocents in a country where we are trying to set up a model democracy. It is also an entry and exit point for insurgents, terrorists, weapons and money into and out of Iraq — and beyond.
As a former senior U.S. intelligence official put it in a UPI report, "Syria is complicit in the insurgency up to its eyeballs." . . .
Assad has made the country a target. It is an enemy of peace, a rogue nation, a patron of terrorists — all facts that, according to a UPI report, have shifted minds within a Bush administration that had been opposed to striking there.
Regime change in Syria should be the ultimate goal of the civilized world. But for now, liquidation of the insurgents will do.
