More Evidence on Syria WMD tests in Darfur

Channel News Asia:

Syria tested chemical weapons on civilians in Sudan's troubled western Darfur region in June and killed dozens of people. The German daily Die Welt newspaper, in an advance release of its Wednesday edition, citing unnamed western security sources, said that injuries apparently caused by chemical arms were found on the bodies of the victims It said that witnesses quoted by an Arabic news website called ILAF in an article on August 2 had said that several frozen bodies arrived suddenly at the "Al-Fashr Hospital" in the Sudanese capital Khartoum in June. Die Welt said the sources had indicated that the weapons tests were undertaken following a military exercise between Syria and Sudan.
Strange isn't it how all the 'bad guys' seem anxious to work together? Almost as though we were facing a world wide enemy...perhaps even an Axis of Evil.

We're not in a position to judge cause and effect. To say that the Bush's US is mobilized against a "world wide enemy" is one point, but you could also say that marginalized nations and organization are increasigly banding together to protect themselves from US aggression.

Of course, from either one of those interpretations, you can say "Good! Easier to hit them when they're all lined up." And that's largely true, though our own momentary resource costs tend to go up the more we have to deal with at once. But you still need to wonder whether some of these nations aren't being spruned by us; if they aren't being polarized against us, by us; and if they are, whether there might have been a more efficient or humane way to proceed.
