A Kosovo Model for Syria Bill Clinton stood up to Milosevic. Barack Obama can confront Assad.
I AM NO ADVOCATE FOR MILOSEVIC WHO WAS A THUG…BUT A COMPARISON WITH ASSAD IS OUTRAGEOUS! AND WHAT HOLBROOKE, HALBRIGHT AND CLINTON DID IN THE BALKANS WAS TO DESTROY SERBIAN INFRASTUCTURE WHEN MILOSEVIC WAS ALREADY ON HIS WAY OUT, AND PAVE THE WAY FOR KOSOVO WHICH WAS LEGALLY AND HISTORICALLY AN INTEGRAL PART OF SERBIA, TO BECOME ANOTHER MOSLEM STATE, WHOSE LEADER, MONSTER HACIM THACI WAS ACCUSED OF HUMAN ORGAN TRAFFICKING…..THIS IS AN AJAMI DELUSION….SHAME ON HIM…..RSK
The bloodshed and the brutality of the dictatorship in Syria are at long last beginning to challenge the passivity of the Obama administration. The word is out that the Pentagon has launched a “scoping exercise” to determine what could be done should the president want to respond to the Syrian catastrophe.
For months, the administration pursued the mirage of a United Nations Security Council condemnation of Damascus, when there was no chance that Russia and China would go for it. The administration persisted even though a similar effort last October ended in failure. There was no need to court the Russians. We granted them the pride of being treated as a great power, and they played it for all it was worth, at home and abroad. The time wasted on the courtship of Russia should have been put to use “scoping” ways the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad could be brought down.
