FPIF analysis: could Syria be next?: "At this time last year, it was difficult to get people to take the threat of war on Iraq seriously. [One has to question this statement. There was little doubt by the time of the November 2002 UN resolution at the latest that the US intended to attack Iraq.] This year, the threat to Syria is much more explicit than that against Saddam Hussein, but too many people dismiss any such thought. But paranoia pays. We should have noted by now that this administration is motivated in mysterious ways, but does clearly signal its intentions no matter how seemingly irrational they appear to others."
