"Excuse me, but what the hell does that really have to do with the subject?
You said: "With all the noise Syria has been making about the U.S. the last couple of days"
Now the truth is that this whole Syria thing started with the US accusating Syria of doing deals with Iraq. This is what I referred to in my first reply.
It's somewhat funny to see the US accuse Syria of doing so, Syria than (naturally) responds to that, yet you state "all the noise Syria has been making about the U.S.". What do you expect the Syrians would do after US's accusations? Not say anything?
If you want to talk about certain rumours, you should at least give ALL
the information, not just the part that backs your theory.
"Trying to deflect more criticism away from Saddam? Typical."
I am only giving ALL
the information on what exactly made Syria 'making all the noise about the US'. In what way is stating the whole truth on a subject, 'deflecting criticism away from Saddam'? This might be the way US reporters work, the rest of the world still believes the truth should be told, ALWAYS.
