Bush vetoes Syria war plan (maybe)
“The White House has privately ruled out suggestions that the US should go to war against Syria following its military success in Iraq, and has blocked preliminary planning for such a campaign in the Pentagon, the Guardian learned yesterday.
In the past few weeks, the US defence secretary, Donald Rumsfeld, ordered contingency plans for a war on Syria to be reviewed following the fall of Baghdad.”
The White House frequently flip-flops rapidly on policy, stating a pro- position one day, and an anti- position the next. So, rather than pay much attention to whatever their spin of the day is, watch what they do, not what they say.
