Bashar's Bridge to Burn

The line between the Great Satan's asymmetrical hudna and asymmetrical jihad is becoming nigh nonexistant.
The Internat'l Palestinian Sympathy Fatigue Awareness Week at Annapolis seems like another futile jaw flapping event. Legitimate reps from a legitimate, democratically elected government of a sovereign nation parley with a chaotic, illegitimate bi polar terrorist loving, civil war infected fiefdoms whose 'diplomats' are determined more by loyalty to a leader than to their own people.

Front row seats include the EU - whose recent realignment with both the Great Satan and the Little Satan make a powerful statement. The Arab Leauge may attend.

Syria 's presence is significant.
A Palestinian State is not the real point here. Driving a wedge between Bashar Al Assad's Syria and the Mullah's in Iran is.
The Great Satan is making an honest effort to engage Syria. Honest because the Little Satan has something that Syria wants. And Syria has something to trade.

"It is clear that Assad will not be sending a representative to Annapolis to
grant legitimacy to a bilateral Israeli-Palestinian process that is meant to end
up with an agreement between the Zionist Entity and the Fatah-led PA.
Keep in mind that Damascus houses and fully supports Hamas, which is
ideologically opposed to any such process. Rather, Assad has a price for his
attendance and for moving away from Iran."
Regaining the Golan heights has driven Syrian policy since the IDF took it fair and square in a real war. It has been one of the ideals behind Bashar's regime since he assumed power. An intregal part of Kuryat Suriyah will take some repositioning before reclaiming.

Disowning Hiz'B'Allah, refraining from blatant and covert interference in Lebanon and officially recognizing Israel seems like a high price to pay for the Golan. Easing sanctions and restrictions on Syria by the Great Satan are powerfully desired bits of legitimacy for Al Assad.

Iran sees a real chance that Syria may bail on her Axis of Evil commitments, after all the mullahs haven't been invited. Bashar build bridges with Turkey because of syria's weakness.

One by one, the Great Satan is forcing the unelected leaders of the ME to get with it or get dissed, smacked or replaced. Countering every Arab League raison de doofuss for the ME's failures is brilliant - especially if Annapolis itself fails.

Will Annapolis actually work? Who cares? This 'hudna' is an effective smokescreen for the near future.

When the Great Satan's hudna finally gives way to the Great Satan's jihad - America unbound can remind targeted regimes and their precious assets - Annapolis was their bridge to avoid all this 'instability'. And they blew it.
