H1 New York Post - Ralph Peters: “…the best hope for the region would be the emergence of a Kurdish state that joined northern Iraq and the Kurdish territories in Syria (and other Kurdish regions in the future); a greater Lebanon that included Syria's coastal provinces; a rump Sunni-Arab state formed of Syria's desert provinces and western Iraq — and a Shi'a-Arab state at the head of the Gulf.”

Asia Times Sex, shopping and the death of a regime Syria is under threat more from internal problems than American challenges. Its economy is a mess and ripe for the picking by the relentless forces of globalization, which will exacerbate the rifts within the country's military-merchant complex.

RFE/RL Opposition Struggles To Keep Momentum
Stratfor Realism in Russia? From an American perspective, the Eurasian landmass can be both an intimidating and endlessly invigorating place. Intimidating, because it is the only landmass on the planet save that of North America that has sufficient resources to nurture and give rise to a truly global power; invigorating, because the existence of many disparate powers there make the task of preventing a single power from arising relatively easy. The sheer size, internal geographic divides and myriad states and ethnic groups that are native to Eurasia are perhaps the strongest factor guaranteeing U.S. national strength -- and on a subconscious level, all U.S. policymakers realize that.

H8 Asia Times More at stake than regime change The American line on Iraq is that the war is fueled by foreign fighters infiltrating from Syria and Iran, making these two countries prime targets for military attack. Syria is certainly the easier one to deal with, but the consequences are likely to be as devastating as they were with the invasion of Cambodia, a sideshow to the Vietnam War.

Wag the dog: Crisis scenarios for Bush In the run-up to the Iraq war, the Bush administration had no hesitation about employing "wag-the-dog" scenarios in which manufactured crises wagged the "dog" of national politics - and that was when the administration was riding high.

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar
