Here We Go Again

How will the Bush administration bail itself out this time? Poll numbers for the president are falling fast. Republican leaders being indicted left and right. And possibly the indictment of top White House officials looms for this week. What is an administration to do in such a tight spot?

Beat the war drums again:
Today, 23 October, 2005. Brit Hume and Bill Kristol substantially made the following statements on FNS:
Syria's government is that of a band of "Gangsters." (arguably true)

Syria's government must be fragile and could easily be brought down.

Syria's government must have no popular support.

There is a well organized and numerous Syrian exile opposition who could easily "take over." (Kristol says he has met the man. That's interesting in itself)

The destruction of the regime in syria would be the key to a general societal revolution whtroughout the Middle East.

What part of this does not sound familiar?

Bush cries wolf again.
