n an exclusive interview with ABC News, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the United States has "firm evidence" that last week's deadly suicide bombing in Tel Aviv was planned and coordinated from within Syrian territory by Islamic Jihad.

Rice, March 1st 2005

There can be no doubt that Saddam Hussein has biological weapons and the capability to rapidly produce more, many more. And he has the ability to dispense these lethal poisons and diseases in ways that can cause massive death and destruction. If biological weapons seem too terrible to contemplate, chemical weapons are equally chilling

That second link -- what a wonderful archive, Wingy. Thanks.

People interested in the underlying realities of current interplay in Lebanon should also read liminal's wonderful report on the Lebanon thread.

'You get your troops and your secret services out of Lebanon so that good democracy has a chance to flourish," Bush said

Perhaps he'll be so good as to provide Israel with similar advice and then go ahead and follow it himself in Iraq.

Juan Cole had a great primer on Lebanon yesterday - scroll down, it's the first entry for March 1.

Bush’s administration gave Israel the go-ahead to attack Syria in retaliation to Tel Aviv bombing that took place last weekend, killing 5 Israelis, the Hebrew daily ‘Yediot Ahronot’ reported.

Also, the U.S. didn’t ask Tel Aviv to exercise self restraint, as in past cases vis-à-vis the Palestinian commando raids, the newspaper added.



It ain't terror if its on behalf of the empire

On Sunday, Israel’s Deputy Defense Minister Zeev Boim said that his country could attack Syria. But he and Vice Premier Shimon Peres said that it would be more effective for Israel to wait and see the results of Washington’s pressure campaign.

That quote from a story linked to the last:

Israel launches diplomatic offensive against Syria

Regarding the Bush administration's call for Syria to leave Lebanon, the definition of chutzpah:

The U.S. calls on Syria to leave Lebanon at the same time the U.S. is occupying Iraq, and at the same time Israel is occupying, and illegally settling, the west bank.

Adding a new beef with Tehran to worries about Iran's nuclear program, McClellan said the Bush administration has "increasing concerns about Iran trying to influence the shape of the transitional government," McClellan said.

"This must be an Iraqi process, free from outside interference, particularly by those in the neighborhood," he said.



Free from outside interference? Particularly those in the neighborhood?

ISRAELI President Moshe Katsav believes Iran may have nuclear weapons by 2007 and threaten not only Israel's existence but also provide the world with its most deadly challenge.
