Syria Comment, managed by Joshua Landis who is closely associated to the Assad regime through marriage, wrote a piece on CNN accusing, indirectly, President Obama of being a Neo-Con.
He claimed that John Bolton, Michael Doran, and Elliott Abrams are leading the charge for regime change in Syria, while Anthony Cordesman is promoting a Laissez Faire policy.
Since it was the President who actually called for regime change in Syria, supported by his own Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, one can only assume Obama has become a Neo-Con.
Let’s-throw-this-one-out-there-to-see-if-it-sticks bunker mentality is gripping Assad at the moment.
Further, Assad cronies in Washington and beyond are combing their contacts inside the Beltway to figure out whether any plans have been drawn to actually bomb Syria. Can Assad spell S C A R E D?
