Bush told Al Arabiya television channel ... what the U.S. would do if Syria did not change its policies: "We're going to use our military. It is the last, very last option. No commander in chief likes to commit the military, and I don't. But on the other hand, you know, I have worked hard for diplomacy, and I will continue to work the diplomatic angle on this issue."

It's hard work, but someone has to do it, right?
At least that's the neocon view, and apparently the brainwash they did on the W in 2001 has really stuck.
Neocons have been pushing for this since at least 1992, when Paul Wolfowitz and Scooter Libby were working for then Defense Secretary Dick Cheney (amazing how the tentacles have captured American power). They've kept up the pressure (see Now That Iraq Has Gone So Well ...) and it seems to be working.
What do you think?
Was the invasion of Iraq worth it? Do you want to continue spending American lives and our way of life by invading another country to further neocon and Israeli foreign policy? (If you don't believe that's the motivation, check out the foreign policy speech Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave to the American Congress here - it was written by Richard Perle, Doug Feith and several other American neocons. And more on the neocons. )
