Syria, From The Man On Whom Nothing Was Lost

Ambassador Charles Hill:

Third, most importantly and urgently, to recognize that the Iranian quasi-empire must be deconstructed and its regime changed.  Syria is the linchpin, for if Assad’s regime can be taken down and replaced by a democratizing process along the current Tunisian mode, then Iran’s imperial archipelago can be broken, with Hezbollah next in line.  In this context, the Palestinian Authority and its treacherous deal-partner Hamas must be seen for what they both are: variations on the old gang systems that the Arab Spring has risen against; neither can expect to be part of a truly transformed Greater Middle East.
