US-Syrian Damascus workshop in the pipeline, as Assad prepares for UN trip
Ibrahim Hamidi reports in al-Hayat: Translated by

“Communications [are continuing] between US and Syrian researchers [who intend to] organize a workshop next fall in Damascus in order to discuss US-Syrian relations. The workshop might be attended by US Congressmen and neo-conservatives in the framework of what is known as the ‘second track’ that is parallel to the 'official,' frozen track between Damascus and Washington,” Al Hayat, a pan-Arab newspaper, reported from Damascus on August 22.

Syrian researchers close to the regime are already paying visits to research centers in Washington to prepare for this workshop. “The workshop will be held by The Center of Research and Strategic Studies from Damascus University in collaboration with Stanley Foundation in the United States,” Al Hayat added.

Meanwhile, sources close to Syrian President Bashar Assad confirmed he will visit New York between September 14-17 to attend the United Nations meeting. “Assad will be the first Syrian President to attend such a meeting since the independence of Syria. Assad will give a speech that will include ‘the new policies of Damascus vis-a-vis other countries,’” Al Hayat added. Syria has already started a diplomatic mission to arrange a series of meetings for President Assad with world leaders who will attend the UN meeting.

“Syria has already activated its role on the Syrian-Iraqi borders by arresting 5,300 suspects who tried to cross the borders to fight against the United States. Syria said it has sent a list of 1,300 suspects to the United States - 85 percent of whom are Saudi Arabian - who Syria says tried to cross the borders to Iraq,” Al Hayat reported.

The paper said it is not clear if this series of events augurs for resuming security cooperation between the United States and Syria, but Syrian-American relations analysts are confirming the importance of Syria in fostering peace for the United States in Iraq. “Washington should choose between stability in Iraq and upheaval in Syria. Both cannot be had at the same time,” Al Hayat concluded. - Al Hayat, United Kingdom
Bush, Chirac, and Sharon refuse to meet with Assad in New York
Al Seyassah, an independent Kuwaiti newspaper, reported on August 23 that: “Two Arab leaders failed during the past few days to convince the US administration to bring together US President George W. Bush or one of his head aides or ministers with the Syrian President Bashar Assad during the next international summit at the United Nations headquarters on September 14.” Gulf diplomatic sources in Washington told Al Seyassah yesterday that: “Arab mediators of the highest political stature met with US Vice-President Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The mediators failed to convince Bush to meet with Syrian President Bashar Assad. The French diplomatic envoy to Washington also confirmed that French President Jacques Chirac is not prepared to meet with the Syrian President either.

“Qatari diplomatic sources in the American capital pointed out that both Syria and Israel refused a suggestion by one of the Gulf countries to have ‘good' relations between the two countries, with the possibility of bringing together Assad and the Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon either secretly or publicly in New York.” According to Al Seyassah’s sources, Israel did not accept the proposal to better relations. Israel told the Gulf mediators that as long as Syria cannot be brought closer to the United States and France, it would be almost out of the question to have an Israeli-Syrian summit, adding that the time for such an effort would be after reaching a final solution to the Israeli-Palestinian 'problem.'" - Al Seyassah, Kuwait

"Several members" of "terrorist group" reported dead in clash with Syria
Al Jazeera TV reported on August 22 that Syrian security troops have clashed with a group they described as a terrorist group affiliated with the Jund al-Sham Organization in the Madaya area near the Lebanese border. The clash resulted in the deaths of several members of the group, while the surviving members were arrested. Al Jazeera learned that the group consisted of Syrians, Iraqis and Saudis who were planning to carry out "terrorist" actions in Syria and Lebanon. - Al Jazeera, Qatar

Syrian officer said to be key source for investigators in Hariri probe
Translated by
Reports close to Rafik Hariri’s political movement say that the key source of information being used by the International Investigation Committee investigating the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri is a Syrian intelligence officer who used to work in the office of the Syrian military intelligence chief,” Elaph, a pan-Arab electronic newspaper, reported on August 20.

This intelligence officer is said to have escaped to a large Arab country with the means to protect the officer from Syrian military intelligence. “The most important information this intelligence officer presented to the investigation committee was the nature of the explosives and the issue of the fundamentalist group who claimed responsibility for assassinating Rafik Hariri,” Elaph added. “The Syrian intelligence officer confirms that Syria is involved in the assassination of Prime Minister Rafik Hariri,” Elaph reported. Regarding the nature of the explosives, the officer confirmed C4 explosives were used, which are only manufactured in the United States, Israel, and some NATO members.

However, the officer confirmed that Syria was able to buy RDX, which constitutes 91 percent of the total substances used to make the C4 explosives, from Slovakia. He added that a Syrian businessman conducted the deal in Istanbul. Elaph added that this officer confirmed that an Islamic fundamentalist group executed the assassination; however, he said the Syrian intelligence was controlling the group.

“The reports that are mentioning all this information all highlight the sensitivity of the information, and that it should be received critically, especially given the number of countries involved in the issue so far,” Elaph concluded. - Elaph, United Kingdom
Iraq is now accusing Jordan, and not Syria, of harboring command central for the Iraqi Baathist resistance should give Damascus a little relief.
BAGHDAD, August 22: The new Iraqi government on Sunday complained that former officials who served Saddam Hussein were providing funds and organising Sunni Arab insurgency from neighbouring Jordan and said this was "unacceptable".

"There are a large number of regime elements who supervise some of the terrorist groups from Jordan," spokesman Laith Kubba told reporters. "We hope to have an agreement with Jordan on combating terrorism and handing over and pursuing suspects."

He stressed that Baghdad wanted good relations with Jordan, adding: "We know Saddam’s family is there with huge amounts of money and they legally fund political and media activities. They even back efforts to revive Baath Party organisations.î

Iraq has often accused Syria and Iran of not doing enough to stop insurgents crossing their border into Iraq.

But if Syria thinks it can breath more easily, Hassan Fattah of the N.Y. Times reports, August 23, 2005, that a Syrian was among the men who recently tried to attack American Ships at Aqaba. Evidently the group was being run out of Iraq. I guess the Jordanians can blame the Iraqi's for organizing terror in their country - except that it may be the Jordanian, Zarqawi, who was giving the orders from Iraq.
The Jordanian government said Monday that it had arrested a prime suspect in the rocket attack on two American warships last week in Aqaba, and for the first time it directly tied the attack to Iraqi insurgents.

Late Monday, state-run Jordanian television announced the arrest and identified the suspect as Muhammad Hassan al-Sihli, a Syrian. The report said Mr. Sihli, who it said was in charge of planning the attack, was part of a terrorist cell that included three Iraqis, including his two sons, Abdullah and Abdelrahman al-Sihli, and another man identified as Muhammad Hamid Hussein.

The cell was reported to be directed by an unidentified insurgent group in Iraq. According to the government statement, the men were "in constant touch with their organization in Iraq during preparation for the attack." But the government stopped short of linking the attack to Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian leader of a terrorist group in Iraq who faces a death sentence here for his involvement in previous attacks.
The number of Turkish tourists to Syria has achieved a remarkable growth so far in 2005 compared to past years, al-Thawra daily reported Monday. “The number of Turkish tourists in 2005 reached 96,000 compared with 22,000 in 2004, 12,000 in 2003, 10,000 in 2001 and 5,000 in 2000,” the paper reported. It attributed the reasons for this increase to the facilities that Syria and Turkey have adopted on borders, the increase of crossing points and air flights in the light of the political rapprochement between the two sides in addition to the economic and trade cooperation.

Syria, Economics, 8/12/2005

Not sure if Neocons otherwise known as dumbcons and bigcons

Listen to this shit posted by non other than a really weak, dumb and coward looser Baathist (called neocon in America).

"The only way for the US to have stabelity in Iraq is to give Syria the Golan hights back"

You need America to give it to you back, why? are you too weak or coward and militarily incompetent to get it back yourself. Or are you too embarrassed to do that because Hafez sold it in the first place, it is kinda childish to ask the Israeli that you sold it to give it to you back ya.

"it feel like an extra 100000 troops fairly trained supporting iraq,s stabeilty"
If you got that many fairly trained Syrian troops, maybe u can convince the Israeli to give you the Golan back, what do ya think? Or do you know for a fact that 100 Syrian Lira ( about $1 on back market) any soldier will drop his gun when the Israeli approach. Sort of like the Iraqis defending Saddam. You must know that this ploy will not work even if you got 1 million Syrian soldier guarding the boarder. They will just sellout for LS100 ya. Is not this the truth

“about France i think Syria should cancel the Airbus deal and buy boing”
Doubt neither the Airbuses nor the Boings will ever see Syrian skies.

Have you Assad talk to those that is important to him the People of Syria.

Whenever a global decision maker of any level reads this blog, they should not take these exchanges of insults on this blog as a reflection of the lack of political social reponsibility of the Syrian individulal "intellectual??!!".

Democracy should be supported by free thinkers around the world vis a vis other countries since democracy is an experience to be undertaken and developed with time no matter how painful it might be at its inception.

To: Jawad

But, sorry, it shows a lack of "culture" or "good and polite style". More and more I am ashamed, if people here in the west ask me, where I come from originally and many Syrians have this problem abroad.
Things like democracy, culture, politeness and style first of all have to grow within oneself. A true democrat will never insult others for a different meaning. That is what I believe.

"Democracy should be supported by free thinkers around the world vis a vis other countries". How right you are. The best address for this is your President. Dont hesitate to tell him about your idea before his departure to New York.

This is, what an Arab Leader ( Dr. Naji Sadeq Sharrab) told in an interview in Al Quds:
""Q: "What is your opinion of democracy?"
Sharrab: "It's an ancient Greek word that is obsolete. We have our own democracy that is based on obedience and loyalty to the ruler, and thus the people work and produce in order to support the regime, and enslave themselves so as to protect it. [Democracy] among us is characterized by lack of complexity."
Q: "How do you see the future of your people?"
Sharrab: "Their future is linked to my future and to my remaining in power." ""

And what does "democracy" for Syrians mean?

You can plan for triple those awsome number in your infamos 5 year plan. Those numbers you stated as being planned are in fact less than the numberes planned in the last socialist 5 year plan. So far not 1% of these numburs are achived in Syria.

When you going to relize that Soviet Styled propoganda worked on dumb Syrian peasantry and alike in intelligence level those working in the U.S. Academia but it will not work on average intelligence citizens, let alone smart people.

If I to pile up all those 9 five year plans that were introduced by the Baath party in tthe past 45 years, you would have created 32 million job and Syria is richer and much more developed than Jappan, China and USA by now.

This is sick.

Yes what that is a good dreamy plan, but after reading it it turns out to be what the Syrian Republican Party platfor has recommended for Assad. Except this is how the Baath if to implement 1 % of this will be:

"-Create over 4 million job opportunities in the next five years, through the largest investment program that has ever witnessed".

Not possible.The only money available for this investment is stolen Syrian people money that is invested abroad by the Baathist regime mafia. You think Assad is going to bring some of his Billions back to Syria now? or you are even more dumb and think foreigner will invest in Syria.

"-Empower private sector to build 1000 factories in the next five years, and to provide 250,000 job opportunities."

You mean 10 new 4-10 workers street corner shops, that have signs bigger than Ford motor company building has?

"-Reclaim one million feddans of desert land, thus providing an additional 70,000 jobs."

Why don't you give people like me the land that you stole without compensation back so we can modernise teh Agrerian sector and introduce new awsome technology developed, well 100 years ago called tractors and give those poor farm animals break. And I was not talking about teh four legged one but the 2 legged peasants that still dig and toil by hand under your modern Socialist state.

"-Increase hotel capacity, creating an additional 200,000 jobs."

No you want, you will just get that human scumm Saudi that N.Y. mayor told him to shove the check in his ass to invest in a new hotel project owned by him, Bashar and the Makhloof family creating about 200 jobs. Just like the previous 5 year old plan.

"-Extend health insurance coverage to every citizen."

45 years and still waiting for that promise. Where the fuck you gonna get the cash to pay for this. Oh Bashar again gonna close his Swiss, U.S. and Malysian bank accounts and pay for it. No wonder why people love him so much.

"-3,500 new schools over next five years."

Even if you to open 350 new school in the next five years, it is more of the same shit. Dumb graduates, taught by really dumb baathist so called teachers. Studied brainwashing socialist books that contain obsolete knowledge.Prepair student to work in the 18 century and when the grad look for jobs, they will find none and will join the 10+Syrian immigrants abroad. The real dumb one, join the baath party and get government job, the real smart one move to U.S. and the largest percentage in between join the unemployment cadre that is already higher than 50%.

"-80,000 government subsidized new homes per year."

They will as usual all be given to Alawites and Baathists.

How about you return my land and have your shitty and corrupt court act on those judjements it issued to free my land, it has been more than 3 decades by now.

"-Provide squatter settlements water, electricity, sewage, and access to schools."

You need that for sure, since under your new 5 years old plan that is the only thing will be growing way larger than your plan anticipates.

"-Raise wage of low-income civil servants by 100%."

Even if it happen, the inflation and currency devaluation of Syrian Lira, will not keep up with cost of living increases.

"-Increase remaining civil servants’ wages by 75%."

Same as above.

"-Guaranteed job contracts, health insurance, and social security to those working in the informal sector."

Gee Sweden HAA. Yes I belive American will believe that. This is as bigger joke as the Baathist can make.

"-Raise pensions."

You call that pension, when you cannot even by 2 gallon of milk with the money?

"-Child care for working mothers
Tauted By the Syrian Republican Party. Well, Syrian are foolish to leave Syria to Sweden."

No wonder why everyone in Syria love your president including me. No, not because those ruthless 350,000 security force that will be getting most of the benefits mentioned above have notoriousely famous torture chambers if you hate the president.

You may have a point here Vox.

The Mehils report can be used to extract concession from the regime. These concessions has nothing to do with improving the lot of the Syrians or Lebanese.

On the other hand, George W can score big, even bigger win than those concessions that can be obtained tooth and nail from the regime.

Syrian Republican Party obtained some unverified reports about the Mehlis report suggesting that the assassination of Lebanon's Harriri was ordered and planned by high ranking officials close to the President. The Bush administrations and international community can demand handing over such accused persons for International trial. That will have serious impact on the regime than the Lebanon withdrawal.

Most likely, they will weal and deal.

Great and unexpected news!

Results are coming in of the presidential elections in Egypt that show the greatest and eternal president of Egypyt, Hosni Mubarak is winning the elction by a comfortable margin; above 90%.

I am looking forward to similar results in 2007 for teh son of teh eternal leader, Hafez Assad, the young eternal leader, Bashar assad.

General George W. Bush: Thank you for installing and pusing for demcracy in Egypt. We are seeing the first results. Thank you also for transfering Mouamar Khadafi to a democrat that the US congressmen can visit and be proud of the visit!

Frankly speaking, and as far as I can't stand the guy, we don't need another international crisis in Lebanon and Syria. The country is almost bankrupted and I need to make a living. I hope and think that Mehlis will accuse some high-ranking Moukhabarat official rather than Bachar.

If we're lucky, Mehlis will give us some kind of 'brave-and-innocent-Bachar never knew what his right hand was doing' speech. Let Mehlis go for the old guard myth. This will allow everybody to save their faces but will be serious enough to prevent Syria from coming back to Lebanon.

Dear Mr. Dandashi,
I don't know how you allow yourself to dessicrate your family name in the manner you come about replying to some people on this blog. I do happen to agree very much with your sensible views, however I am appaulled with your reaction and the selection of words and expressions. this is one of the mirrors reflecting Syria to the outside. Please re-consider your manners in accordance with your family's history. Remember that a Gentleman never looses his temper. I hope you would consider re-building a new image with the same daring views you have yet with a much more eloquent language and more controlled laguage even with the people who choose a lesser one.
It is very upsetting for me to see you making sense with your arguments yet vulgar at the same time. I am not worried about the type of language used by someone with an ignorant view because it would go well with their character. Please reconsider.

I think the comments on this blog have become absolutely ridiculous and serve no purpose but to prove what a fickle brain every individual on this board has. Your arguments possess little, if no respect, intellect and understanding of basic human interaction, nevermind politics. You have honestly disgraced this site by making fools out of yourselves pretending to be defenders of "ideal" arab socities. Ironic isnt it, your comments simply place you in the league of those you openly criticize and claim to harm the public. The only difference is they have positions of "importance" while each and every one of you sits behind his screen. I would like to meet each and every one of you someday and witness you in your reality. I'd be very surprised if we didnt have schizos on this board.

If you want to continue to banter, insult and bash Josh or anyone who posts something relevant/useful please do it elsewhere. If however you decide to leave your egos at the door and participate in positive dialogue then please do so. It has become a pain on us and i believe i speak for more than simply myself.

What can we say in the face of those like "BAIK", whose sole purpose in saying anything is to belittle others so they can defend a regime that is indefensible, and people in the regime that have more blood on their hands than any other mass criminal in the history of all humanity! What can we say when some one like Baik pretends to be civilized and pretend to be giving the posters lessons in behaviour when all he needs is to think just for few minutes of the pain that this regime is causing to Dr. Aref Dalilah, and the Parlimentarian Ryad Seif who the regime has imprisoned since 2001 and whose lives in prison is hell itself. How can any one smile when people like them who have done nothingg what soever except expressing an opinion believing the criminal Bashar when he asked them to speak out, because he "wanted" to reform! Exactly as his father did so many times, and especially in 1979 when he asked the leaders of various Unions to speak, because he "wanted" to know what was happening in the country so he could "reform", and they all ended up dead or in jail until today!

Some one like Baik can not deserve but a spit on his face.

This regime is identical to the regime of Saddam Hussein. The two regimes are the two faces of the same coin. This regime established a party that claimed, in its sources and its principles, to be the party that defends freedom, human rights, national dreams, and pan-Arab hopes – the party that stands for social justice, distributes resources, cares for the citizen, and advocates other utopian and romantic ideas.Yet after the party seized control and established the regime, it quickly cut itself off from its principles. It led factionalist movements while calling for unity. It ripped the social fabric, while calling for national unity. It took over the resources of the people, while calling for distribution of resources. Its heroic members built themselves houses, palaces, and brothels, and their sons spread corruption and sank into forbidden deeds – exactly as we saw at Saddam Hussein's palaces in Iraq, in his brothels in Baghdad, in his son Uday's zoos, with cages full of tigers and lions, and all the signs attesting to a sadistic personality afflicted with a sick sexual perversion.
The Syrian regime is built in the image of the collapsing Saddam regime. It is no different from it at all. The morality and behavior of its members differ not a whit from the morality and behavior of the Saddam regime. The regime has a monopoly on the government and on the resources; the men of the regime and their cronies spread corruption and humiliate and torture the people. We see them in the gambling clubs squandering millions. One spent $8 million at the green tables.

The aid money that came to the regime to build the army went not to the army, the regiments, or the brigades, but into the pockets of the president's brothers, sons, and family members. Economic openness applied to them but was forbidden to the public. They sold their goods at the local market to the unfortunate citizens, at the highest of prices.

This is a regime similar to the collapsing regime of Saddam Hussein. Its peoples pray for its downfall, and will welcome with flowers any force mobilized by Allah that liberates and rescues them, and gives them aid over the grave of this oppressing regime after bringing it to an end.

Over 30 years have passed, and the people continue to suffer humiliation and repression from this regime, and pray to Allah to rescue them. It seems that the prayers of the people have finally been answered… This regime will not be spared divine punishment unless it corrects itself and changes its repressive nature. But there is no hope of this…

He feels the oppression as it is happeningto him. That is a true human being. He doesn;t have to feel anything that is a 1000 miles away from him, and will never touch him, but he feels the pain of the Syrian people, and he lives the misery of those that were tortured by Assad and his associates.

God bless you, Jaralah!

I do not exaggerate by saying this, within each one of us there is a little dictator who feels gratification when he is repressed by those stronger and more brutal than he, and who at the same time does not refrain from acting this same way, in his milieu, towards those weaker and inferior in status. And when that milieu expands, he gradually imposes this on more people, so that when this sphere grows and he is the one who decides first and last, and who gives the orders, dictatorship spreads and it is imposed on all the people. Thus yesterday's oppressed become today's oppressor; yesterday's subjugated become today's subjugator; he that was wronged now becomes the wrongdoer; the humiliated becomes the arrogant.

The only right thing for the Syrian regime to do would be to abide by international demands. It must change, even if the change is at the cost of its own existence. We know it would be hard for the regime to take this advice. But it should do so in the interest of its people. After all, we don't want the Baghdad nightmare in Damascus.

Thank you Mr. Jarallah. I respect your opinion very much, you are a rare voice in Arab media. I am familiar with Al-Siassah newspaper for long time since I was 16 years old. I worked in Kuwait Prefabricated Building Company as assistant designer for a year. Even visited the paper offices back then in 1970-71 and published 2 political cartoons at that time in the paper. Since then Al-Siassah has been a rare voice of support to the people of Syria. Many thanks and appreciation to you and the paper.

To Whome it may concern.....

Re: Ahmad Al Jarralah Posts

First of all I do not believe that the POST in the name of Ahmad Al Jarralah is really comming from "the" Ahmad Al Jarralah, the Owner of the Kuwaiti al Syasah and the Kuwuait Times newspapers.
Now, if it is "really" coming from him, I would be surprised. Really Surprised. Not because of the content of his message which is consistent with his newspaper political line (at this time), but because the guy can hardly write in Arabic, so how come he is posting blogs in English. That "is" an achievement for an uneducated opportunistic novice who struk it rich by striking right, with the right people at the right time.
If the POST is really coming from "the" Ahmad Al Jarralah (who all of a sudden takes an interest in Surian affairs and is really concerned about Syria not going the same path that Iraq went, then that would be a tremendous cause of concern as this for a millionaire who made his fortune by selling the pages of his newspaper to the highest bidder of the day. Yellow newspaper if you like....with the lowest readership in Kuwait (but availlable at every corner around the world - making you again woumder who was shouldering the cost). If I recall correctly, "He" was one of the first to Support and Defend Sadat breakaway policies and then to advocate Normalisation with Israel,(of course when he was given the green light by his TRUE masters in Saudi Arabia). Of course not to mention the ferocity with which his newspaper supported the "Mujahedeen" in Afganistan -when that was "norm of the day". For the uninitiated; he, -his paper- is famous for usually being "used" to dessimenate "news bits" as test-baloons for certain entertained policies and approaches. And for him to come now and "worry" about Syria going down the same Iraqi road is really interesting.
Why, ???? because Ahmad Al Jarralah and his newspapers were SADDAM LOVERS (Paid Lovers, of course)before Sddam invaded Kuwait. At that time his newspaper was the fiercest in defending Saddam and "attacking" Syria for not siding with Battal Al Qadissyah (the hero of the Qadessyia battle) as Saddam was called by the Kuwaiti press at the time. Now this "enlightened" JOUNALISTO is all of sudden couragous, brave and "caring" enough to print "news" about Jameel al Sayed, the ex Lebanese security chief involvement in Hariri's assasination, and to give tender, loving and caring advice to Syria. I am sure he is really "worried" about the well being of the "Arab world".
Well, his stunch -paid- support of Sadam then has definitly contributed to where all of us, including the US soldiers and the Iraqi ones -dead or still alive- are standing right now, and I really hope he is not leading his readers down "that" road again.
Well, as regards the post itself, I am sure it is just some one is using his name, otherwise, and if it is coming from his direction, then maybe there is "another" over-enthusiastic "Syria Caring Lover" who reads Josh blogs and works for him, and who had maybe "advised" him and maybe "coached" him into "writing" his articulate posts. What a world we live in. Do we not desreve what is happening to us???? Or rather, "what we are allowing others to do to us"????
Al Syassah newspaper, call it anything, but not a rare voice in the Arab media. It is not.

I am starting to a hold a grudge against Josh for continuing to allow non-registered members to post. If this was a civilized comment section then i would appreciate the necessity of having Anons posting. But unfortunately there are so many here who have trashed this site (on purpose) to disallow the few who want to have a decent conversation/argument.

Closing the comment section is bad, but to keep the door for morons to post so easily is also driving some people out of this blog because the crap is overwhelming. These pricks would have to think twice before spamming the site when they have to register every time they log on. And known spammers should be banned immediately. I think this the only solution. And if Josh doesn’t act soon, all that will be left are the spammers.

As soon as US congressmen and Senators visited Khadafi, and gave him a clean bill of good conduct, and his son spoke for human rights as though he is the defender of mankind, the Lybian Regime went back right away to its previous habbit of assassinating opponents or those who the regime believe are potentially becoming opponents. The Lybian Regime assassinated their diplomat in Sweeden.

Thanks to the policies of George W Bush, the Arabs will never get rid of their regimes. As he attacked Saddam at first because it was the plan for long time, for which the long UN sanctions were the helpers to execute the plan, he at first brought it down not for democracy officially, but for possessing WMD. When that was uncovered, of course to be a lie, he changed it after the fait accompli to "wanting to liberate the Arab world". Well, Mr. Bush, what is so different about Lybia from Iraq or Syria, or Saudi Arabia? Why don't you want demcocracy for them as well? Are their regimes serving you better than Saddam's? and that is why, it is ok to let them stay?

I can understand your irritation. You are right, some comments -mannerisem and speech etiqute- leaves a lot to be desired, but asking people to register may scare off some. They prefere to remain Anonymous for a lot of reasons. They maybe scared off. Let them post whatever they want, we are mature enough, we can just skip over the trash postings, and move on to the authentic ones... just like we do ten times a day.
I am speaking of personal experience as I just recieved a not from this site to register, which I did, then I recieved an email asking me to "authenticate" my registration..! (Actually,I do not know what I am going to do about it. Maybe I will just wait until Josh runs a notice saying that it is HIM who is asking this not someone else!!!)
Heck, we are in the middle of this "war on terror!!" phenomenon which has caused even the "US regiem" to adopt policies which run opposit to the US constitution. People are scared man! Really! and not from "Regiems" alone, but form "Democracies" as well, more from the later actually if you consider the genious notion of "who is not with us is against us"! And a lot of people do not want to be against anyone; especially as they are not materially equipped to do so as are the Koreans, the immigrant and drug smuggling-rings across the Mexico-US boarder, the Bin Ladins and the Zarqawies (Bunnnnn intended).
Really, some prefere to remain anynomous. Let them do what they like. After all a little extra irritation is nothing compared to the other irritations that are going on all around us. Actually, and just to give you an example, do such irritations compare in any way with how you feel when you see a car bomb explodes in the middle of a civilian nieghbourhod in Baghdad, or the tear in the eye of a palestinian woman whose child was shot dead by guess-who, or with Jumblat acting as a sincere patriot, or when the (genious US/ Middle-east and Forign Policy destroyer) Rummy or Bolton faces pop up on the CNN ...
Be patient, gloss over linguistically tastless stuff and let the ones who do not know how to debate in a civil manner have the time to show thier ignorance. After all, if they do not exibit thier "acquiered lingusitics talents", how would we know that they exsist amongst us???? Or do they not?

But after a while of me complying with many people advise, ignoring the attacks which I think it is insane to do, because you can not be nice to Crocodiles and wild hayinas and other low class people. These kind of people interpert such a poster as a sign of weakness and they will attack more. So I will be quite and not respond just to prove that my theory of how to deal with human is right. The theory is and that is how I deal with people, is that you treat those who respect themself with respect and those that don't do not because they are not human but wild animals and not responding aggressively to them they consider it weakness.

I know my theory is right and here I will refrain from telling these animals what I think of thier god for a while, but should this experiment fails, I get attacked again, I am proven right, expect my replies to those animals to be worse language that u used to hear from me.

the test period starts now, I am betting 3 people and my wife a Dollar each that in 3 days I will win, and forever don't tell me about my language. Wild animals are it, wild animals even if they got 4 billions Dollars that they or helped stole for Syrians.

He did not permit them while in prisons to have a pen so they could write their memoires, neither did he permit to any one in the whole country to mention them in any way, and mentioning their names was enough to take any one to jail. He insisted on marking his name on every building or structure in all of Syria no matter how small or how old it is, from the Omayad Mosque to any little park in any quarter in any village. He had to add a plaqque mentioning his name as the builder of that structure or its fixer. This is so evident in any place in Syria. Generations from now will look back and see Hafez Assad name all over Syria, and they will think that there was nothing in Syria prior to him, so that great great man, Hafez Assad was every thing for Syria. He was truly God.

What a sick man he was ! What an egomaniac, some oen whop does not think but of his glory, and how to make every body worship him, and post his pictures ansd status with a smile.

He was truly psychologically more disturbed than Hitler, or any one else. At least Hitler built his country and gave his people the self confidence that brought them to the tiop of the world, at least Stalin (though he was a crimial man) built an empire and created a great country and brought the Soviet Union from ashes to become an empire. What did this lit5tle man, Hafez Assad do? Destroying the two little countries he had control of, Lebanon, and Syria, and creating the seed for civil wars that will propably come some day because of him!

That was Hafez Assad, the little man.

Since you asked for constructive criticism on your i will have to make my unconstructive criticism here since i don’t want to pollute any of your posts. ;)

Seriously though, your posts are poorly constructed with no sense of impartiality or criticism. You're repeating everything we have been taught in middle school without doubting it once. I have made my position very clear on how i view Hafez and Bashar Al Assad here several times and got cursed for it (proudly) dozens of times. But your blog takes the cake really, it looks like its been written by a university student who needs an extra-buck/attention and doing it the best way he/she knows how; Kissing ass!!! And with this style of writing you are actually damaging your “cause” instead of helping it

You want constructive criticism? Then delete all your posts and (try) rewriting them in unbiased manner where you look at the pros and the cons, because nobody is perfect. And if you have a problem focusing on both then concentrate on the cons it will be a healthy reality.

غازي كنعان يصدر أمراً بالموت البطيء للنائب السابق رياض سيف في سجنه
دمشق - أخبار الشرق (خاص)

أصدر وزير الداخلية السورية غازي كنعان (لواء متقاعد) أمراً بالموت البطيء بدأ تنفيذه بحق النائب السابق رياض سيف المعتقل بسبب مطالبته بالديمقراطية، والذي يقضي حكماً بالسجن خمسة أعوام منذ أيلول/ سبتمبر 2001.

وعلمت أخبار الشرق أن كنعان زار سيف فجأة في سجنه قبل أسابيع وتحدث إليه بحضور بعض الضباط، سائلاً إياه إن كان طلب مقابلته، فأجابه بأنه لم يطلب مقابلته ولا شيء يقوله له. وأثار رد سيف حفيظة الوزير السوري، فاشتعل بينهما حوار غاضب، تبعته زيارة أخرى لكنعان إلى زنزانة النائب الآخر السابق المعتقل محمد مأمون الحمصي، الذي كان استقباله للوزير حافلاً بالصراخ!

وقد أمر كنعان، بعد الزيارة، بإدخال سجينين جنائيين إلى زنزانتي سيف والحمصي، عقاباً لهما. وبناء على أوامر الوزير، فقد أُدخل سجينان أحدهما متهم في قضية مخدرات والآخر في قضية قتل، إلى زنزانة النائب رياض سيف الذي يعاني من مشكلة قلبية، وطُلب إليهما أن يستمرا في عادتهما بالتدخين الكثيف، في زنزانة مغلقة، الأمر الذي أدى إلى تردٍّ شديد في وضع سيف الصحي.

وكان رياض سيف أُحيل إلى المشفى أكثر من مرة في الشهور الأخيرة، وقرر الأطباء حاجته إلى جراحة عاجلة في القلب بسبب تضيق في أحد الشرايين، إلا أنه لم يخضع للعملية، بسبب الكلفة العالية المطلوبة، وتردي أوضاعه المادية منذ التضييق على أعماله التجارية قبل سنوات. وتعتبر أوامر غازي كنعان الأخيرة التي نفذتها إدارة سجن عدرا، حيث يوجد سيف في القسم السياسي؛ بمثابة أمر بالقتل البطيء.

وفي حالة النائب مأمون الحمصي، فقد تم إدخال سجينين متهمين في قضية أخلاقية، لمضايقته في زنزانته. وكانت السلطات السورية رفضت الإفراج عن النائبين المعتقلين بعد قضائهما ثلاثة أرباع المدة، متعللة بأنهما "لم يصلحا نفسيهما
