War drums are beating...

[Media Source*]

(Fox News) Things are not looking good for Syria. The drums of war are beating and the diplomatic situation is looking worse.
Bush added that the diplomatic rift "indicates that the relationship [with Syria] is not moving forward, that Syria's out of step with the progress being made in a greater Middle East, that democracy's on the move and this is a country that isn't moving with the democratic movement."

Bush means serious business here. He is meeting with European allies (who save for Britain have yet to prove themselves) in order to increase the pressure on Syria and the Iranian Regime. More below.

The ironic thing about this is that Bush is not alone in this opinion (as he was with Iraq). Although other nations are at least pursuing putting pressure diplomatically, Bush is find common ground across party lines.
U.S. lawmakers from both parties are pressuring the president to tighten sanctions on Syria in the wake of Hariri's killing. Eleven senators, including Democrats Hillary Clinton of New York and Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Republicans Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas and Jon Kyl of Arizona, sent Bush a letter today urging him "to take strong action against Syria."

With both parties now on board (especially after a polarizing election in the states) Syria should be reading the "signs of the times" and hastily remove it's troops from Lebanon. Bush also wants Syria to remove Iraqi Baathists from it's region as well as stop sponsoring terror and encourage free election in Lebanon. If you are thinking that the U.S. is "too thin" too respond think again.
"I think we can lay a marker down, and we can do it very quickly, very simply, relatively," Moore said. "The Bush administration has shown it can walk and chew gum at the same time ... we can send a real strong signal with one bomb from a B-2 to a Syrian-regime target." (Gen. Burton Moore, U.S. Central Command director during Operation Desert Storm)

Our troops may be busy (at the moment) but are jets probably are not! Well...that is all for today...more later on...Selah!
