New pro-war bigot joins Bush administration

Christ... the Bush administration has assembled an all-star team of fanatic Likudnik anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian bigots to serve as advisors. Abrams, Bolton, Perle, Wolfowitz, Libby, Feith, and Cheney apparently weren't enough... now David Wurmser is on board, as an advisor to Cheney. And he really wants to get busy:
Damascus has been in Wurmser's sights at least since he began working with Perle at the AEI in the mid-1990s.

For the latter part of the decade, he wrote frequently to support a joint US-Israeli effort to undermine then president Hafez Assad, in hopes of destroying Ba'ath rule and hastening the creation of a new order in the Levant to be dominated by "tribal, familial and clan unions under limited governments".
For those who aren't up to speed on political theory, encouraging "tribal, familial and clan unions" is not conducive to "democracy".

But who really believed all of this "democracy" bullshit, anyway?

"Whoever inherits Iraq dominates the entire Levant strategically," he wrote in one 1996 paper for the Jerusalem-based Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies (IASPS).

Wurmser... was the main author of a 1996 report by a task force convened by the IASPS and headed by Perle, called the Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000.

The paper, called "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm", was directed to incoming Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
I will point out, as the article does, that Wurmser's wife runs the notorious translation outfit MEMRI, which specializes in presenting the most sensationalist opinions in the Arabic press as reflecting the state of debate in Arab society.

So, for undecided voters out there, let me just say this: if Bush is reelected in 2004, and he keeps this line-up in place, there will be at least one more war in the Middle East, most likely against Syria. Let me repeat: the US will become involved in another war. This war will be fought exclusively for Israeli interests. Let me repeat that as well: the US has no national interest in attacking Syria. Israel has a huge interest in seeing the US attack Syria - as pointed out by people like Wurmser himself.

Think about this when you go and throw your vote away to Diebold. No, I am not paranoid. And yes, you should be.
