Syria Disturbs Bush’s Big Pot of Terrorist Stew

Syrian guards disrupted an al Qaida attack on the U.S. Embassy in Damascus by killing three militants and wounding a fourth who later died. Syria is dominated by Shia Muslims while al Qaeda is primarily a Sunni Muslim group.

The Bush administration meekly thanked the Syrian government for its quick action to defend the U.S. embassy, hoping the greater American public would not hear. Otherwise, patriots might ask “Why is one terrorist group killing another to protect American interests abroad? Aren’t they all in one big terrorist pot, like the President recently described?”

What’s really being served up by world leaders is “divide and conquer”. Pitting groups against each other focuses attention on division and away from our common humanity or leader’s hands in the cookie jar. With the Bush team, it’s a little bit of the first and a lot of the later. The government industrial monstrosity is here and now, yet few see it.
