A Neocon Plan to Plant WMDs? by GARY LEUPP

The neocons have helped create an environment in which Syria is simply assumed to be responsible for political assassinations in Lebanon, in the absence of decisive evidence. While you'd think "the international community" would recognize and reject U.S. efforts to attack more countries in "the Greater Middle East," instead we find neocon successes in diplomacy. They've brought Europe aboard the program. They may well seek UNSC sanctions against both Iran and Syria, and resolutions that could be construed as allowing U.S. attacks on these countries. These efforts will likely meet with Chinese and Russian vetoes, but the Bush administration expressing disappointment in the UN will proceed to bomb more Muslim countries on more false pretexts, even while evidence of their Iraq deceptions mounts.
