Dorky’s Denials

Syrian dorktator Assad is feeling the heat, as it becomes clearer that Syria’s involvement in world terrorism is becoming more transparent. Yet the dorktator continues to deny everything.

 

Syrian support of Iraqi terrorists against coalition troops? Naaa..just the US blaming Syria for its own failings.

The Syrian president said the United States had made crucial mistakes in its handling of Iraq following the fall of Baghdad and was trying to blame Damascus for its own failings. He denied accusations that Syria was letting insurgents cross into neighbouring Iraq unhindered and said he had offered to set up joint U.S.-Syrian patrols of the border territory.

Syria being behind the assasination of the former Prime Minister of Lebanon, Hariri? Naaa..that would be stupid, and Syria does not do stupid things.

Assad rejected accusations of involvement in the killing.

 

“For us it would be like political suicide,” he said.

Syria being involved in the latest terror atrocity in Israel? Naaa..that’s just the Zionists being rude.

Asked about Israeli accusations that Syria was involved in a suicide bombing at a night club in Tel Aviv on Friday that killed five people, Assad said: “It’s a pointlessly offensive accusation. Syria has nothing to do with it.”

You see, we have it all wrong. Syria is not the problem here. It is the solution.

Rather than viewing Syria as an enemy, Assad said his country was a vital peace partner and force for stability.

 

“Sooner or later they will realize that we are the key to the solution. We are essential for the peace process, for Iraq. Look, perhaps one day the Americans will come and knock on our door,” he was quoted as saying.

Despite dorky’s chutzpah, the net is closing around Syria. While there is no direct evidence that Syria was behind Hariri’s murder, experts say that the bombing was “typical of Syrian intelligence.” (Syrian intelligence: now there’s an oxymoron for you – ed). And, indeed, most Lebanese blame the Syrian occupiers. This had led to Syria openly expressing their intention to leave Lebanon.

He also indicated Syria would take its time to withdraw its troops from Lebanon. “From a technical viewpoint, the repatriation (of Syrian forces) could happen within the end of the year. But from a strategic viewpoint, it will only happen if we get serious guarantees. In a word, peace,” Assad said

Regarding the Tel Aviv terror attack, Israel apparently has something called evidence.

As the March 1 London conference devoted to the re-building of the Palestinian Authority approaches, Israel has launched an informational “hasbara” campaign to shed light on Syria’s involvement in terror orchestration.

 

Delegations from the Israeli defense establishment embarked Monday to Washington, Paris and London, in order to present intelligence information which Israel has collected against Syria revealing its role in the deadly bombing in Tel Aviv Friday night, which killed five people.

 

Israel said Sunday that it would use intelligence information to prove Syria was behind Friday night’s suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz told the cabinet Sunday.

 

What the two called irrefutable evidence to this effect has been sent to the US and select European allies. The evidence, based on intelligence information, will be presented by IDF Intelligence chief Aharon Ze’evi Farkash in a briefing on Monday at the Foreign Ministry for ambassadors from European Union countries and the UN Security Council.

There’s no denying this: Dorky is afraid. Very afraid.

“Washington has imposed sanctions on us and isolated us in the past, but each time the circle hasn’t closed around us,” Assad told la Repubblica.

 

“If, however, you ask me if I’m expecting an armed attack (from the United States), well I’ve seen it coming since the end of the war in Iraq. It’s from then that tensions have been rising,” he added.

 

Asked if a “settling of scores” was imminent, Assad said: “I don’t think so, for now it’s just skirmishing. True, the White House language, if looked at in detail, leads one to expect a campaign similar to the one that led up to attack on Iraq.”

Asked what his biggest fear was, Assad said: “The thought of this armed America of today which acts like a superpower with no vision.”

And I bet he has just the ophthalmologist in mind to correct this vision.
