Now, just humor me, but replace every instance of "Syria" with "Iraq" and what do you get? Nice smooth move. Sure is better than what I had expected, which was planting the "evidence" to justify the WMD and terrorism claim.

Well, if you do any research on the topic, it is now known that Syria is aiding some of the top officials of the Saddam Hussein regime, and the Mossad are reporting that they have evidence that it was planned all along for Iraq to move some of their forbidden weapons into Syria before the war began. I would prefer to hear a few more intelligence agencies offer their opinions before passing judgement on the weapons, but CIA, Mossad, MI 6 have all reported that at least 25 top officials have been seen in Damascus.

Lets face it. It isnt that hard to believe that Syria did allow the weapons to be brought into their country before the war. I mean, look, they allowed weapons shipments to go into Iraq during the war (Russian and French military equipment by the way), and are not assisting the US in any way, shape or form.

I think that the correct thing to do is to put political pressure on the Syrian Goverment, as well as pressure from the UN. Remember after 9/11, Bush stood before a joint session of Congress and told the world if you harbor terrorist or assist them in any way, then you are a terrorist??? Well Syria is home to several terrorist organizations, and they are assisting the Iraqi regime, so they are not our friends.
