Obama: all talk and no action

May 8th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics

Barack Obama has extended one of the Bush era’s most neo-conservative decisions: to impose a massive range of sanctions on Syria.

The sanctions were the pet project of the Cheney-Rumsfeld hawks in 2004. It came a year after the Bush regime started making accusatory noises towards Syria. It all started with the claim that Syria was sending night-vision goggles to the Iraqi army.

SYRIA-US-DIPLOMACY

48 hours after Jeffrey Feltman’s plane took off from Damascus Airport, Obama sticks the knife in.

And Arabs still have faith in his “change”?
