  1. I don't get it. Choucair takes one page to tell us Syria was not happy with 1701 (cuz Shebaa)??

    I guess this stands for "analysis" in our dismal country and in the Daily Star.

    And what unknown perspective does it provide on Bashar's speech??

    Would you explain?

  2. Thanks for your comment Josey. I agree its not the greatest analysis article but for me it helped fill in the details of somethings already generally known, e.g. the specific contacts and maneuvers the Syrians conducted among the Arabs.

    Hehe, sorry if I unintentionally raised your expectations!

  3. Thx Jade,

    Good luck with your blog.

  4. There's nothing to analyze.
    Assad Assad fi Loubnan, Arnab Arnab fil Joulan...
