Now US is talking about Syria. It's interesting to see how these guys are building up the story. As the first move , they are calling it a terrorist state and are considering economic sanctions. Today I read an article in the Chronicle about the reform measures that Bashar Asad started in year 2000 in Syria. It came to my mind that how come nothing was mentioned in Western media over these past few years about these reforms while there was this flow of content around Iranian reform?

Parallel to Iran, it was slowed down in Summer 2001. So, it's obvious that Syria will move towards more dictatorship after this. That's what Bush adminstration has done to any middle eastern country who was on the path of reform in the past few years.
