A couple of worthwhile links.

One from Osama Saeed on a great opportunity for Muslims. Heh!

And one from Sidney Blumenthal called the neocons' next war.
Inside the administration, neoconservatives on Vice President Dick Cheney's national security staff and Elliott Abrams, the neoconservative senior director for the Near East on the National Security Council, are prime movers behind sharing NSA intelligence with Israel, and they have discussed Syrian and Iranian supply activities as a potential pretext for Israeli bombing of both countries, the source privy to conversations about the program says. (Intelligence, including that gathered by the NSA, has been provided to Israel in the past for various purposes.) The neoconservatives are described as enthusiastic about the possibility of using NSA intelligence as a lever to widen the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah and Israel and Hamas into a four-front war.
Sane people wouldn't even consider another dangerous escalation of conflict in an already desperately volatile region. Sane people wouldn't even consider it. Clearly, that doesn't rule out the possibility that senior neo-cons are advocating it at this very moment. In fact, it probably makes it a certainty.
