This is no more.
President Bush, with Condi Rice influence, was first to give-in to violence and terror on a large scale when he became recalcitrant to defend Iraq from the terror of Assad and Ahmadinajead.
The start of a new era where the masters of terror could terrorize at will and go unpunished has begun.
As a result, Assad is training Palestinians in Lebanon to send to Gaza, Europe, and anywhere else he deems them useful to terrorize for his personal benefit.
Assad continues to arm Hezbollah to proxy for his lack of presence in Lebanon and to terrorize the Lebanese and the Israelis.
Assad knows there is no price to pay for his actions. Too many governments just ignore them or tacitly support his tragedy.
Even those Arab leaders who are supposed to be relatively moderate are using the Assad terror machine to their advantage. Such is the case of Mahmoud Abbas ‘warning’ Israel not to retaliate against Hamas for firing rockets on Israel.
Condi rice started it and Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, and Israelis pay the heaviest price for it.
Welcome to the gates of hell of a new Assadian civilization of terror of the 21st century.
