Syria and Iran: Bring it on, Israel!

[A must watch video: George Galloway on Sky]

The Syrian Foreign Minister today was emboldened enough to say:"Syria is ready for the possibility of a regional war if the Israeli aggression continues...[and] as Syria's foreign minister I hope to be a soldier in the resistance.''

From the beginning, the war on Lebanon was a losing battle. The more Israel kills Lebanese civilians and destroys Lebanon's infrastructure the stronger Hezbollah becomes.

The only way to have hurt Hezbollah and Iran is to have focused on Syria and its weak regime. But now it is too late.

With a change of regime in Syria, attacks in Iraq would stopped so would weapons to Hezbollah. The Syrian opposition made it clear that fighting Israel is not its intention and I wonder why the Israelis did not see this option.

Ariel Sharon understood that. He was the one who sent planes to bomb Palestinian bases in Syria. He scared them.

Lebanon is and was always a trap for Israel. Ehud Olmert and his army of hotheads and criminals did not see that and they fell right into it.

It would have been simple, Israel hits the Syrian military and regime aparatus and the opposition takes over in no time. Iran would not have intervened and if it did than it would have been threatened with deadly force.

At the same time, Israel makes peace with the Palestinian moderates and things would have come to an end.

But today, Israel looks very weak and the Syrians know it.
