James Baker is telling George Bush he must go cap in hand to the Syrians and Iranians if there is ever to be peace in Iraq. Tony Blair is calling for both countries to play a larger role in Middle East peace generally.
For more than three years now, cialis both national leaders have been bad-mouthing the Iranians and Syrians – George Bush even denouncing Iran as part of his “axis of evil”. Can the governments of either country be blamed if they show less than enthusiasm for leaping into the fray when Bush and Blair crook their fingers?
Or, should they, perhaps, consider it an honor to be called to serve the great Western powers in their hour of need?
Many Americans will automatically assume the latter.
