Christopher Allbritton dug around and came up with some fresh indications that the United States might be planning to attack Syria. I gotta agree that HR 1828 is pretty indicative, although it’s also the kind of rhetoric Congressmen use to take a tough stance on terrorism in election years. I also think that Israel’s nuclear revelations are aimed at Iran, which has much more of a nuclear program than Syria.
Then again, Syria is a somewhat easier target than Iran given geographical considerations. I don’t think you’d want to use Iraq as a military base of operations right now. So for the purposes of a quick poll pickup, sure, Syria might look like a good choice.
