Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Lee Smith…. Is Right – This is an Obama turnaround

Smith’s analysis is not good (this is all about us-russian relations ONLY???? he says), but the main thrust which the pro-war lobby is fuming about is very true and again its interesting because this shows the extreme end of polemics that will come at Obama. Wait for Mike young to pile on in the coming days!

“…The latest? The administration endorsed the same peace plan for Syria, put forward by former U.N. head Kofi Annan, that Moscow has been pushing. It calls for a ceasefire and dialogue between the opposition and the government that is slaughtering them. This Russia-U.S. condominium marks a dramatic turnaround in the White House’s regime change policy for Syria”

The Annan plan does NOT call for Bashar to go.

Of course this is the track we should have been on a while ago, but when the Neo-LiberalCons are really upset about a policy change you know you are heading in a humane and sensible direction at least!
