Tom Friedman has an excellent piece on the Syria situation, calling for “aggressive engagement” with them and Arafat’s regime. He also announces a brilliant new doctrine of international relations:
For me, the best argument for pressuring Syria is the fact that France’s foreign minister, Dominique de Villepin, said on Sunday that this was not the time to be pressuring Syria. Ever since he blocked any U.N. military action against Saddam, Mr. de Villepin has become my moral compass: whatever he is for, I am against. And whatever he is against, I am for.
