[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] PERLE: SYRIA MAY BE NEXT Agence France-Presse, 2/23/03 http://www.ptd.net/webnews/wed/bv/Qiraq-us-perle.R8i7_DFN.html DUBAI - The United States will attack Iraq even if France uses its veto to block a new resolution in the UN Security Council, top Pentagon adviser Richard Perle said in an interview published Sunday. The Bush administration hawk also indicated that after overthrowing Iraqi President Saddam Hussein Washington might set its sights on Syria's Bashar al-Assad. If Paris vetoed a resolution backing war, "We will go (to war) without an international resolution," the Arabic daily Asharq al-Awsat quoted him as saying in an interview... "The experience in Iraq will be a prelude to reforms in the region," Perle warned. "I hope Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will consider reforms, otherwise" he may say to himself, "'I could be the second target.'" _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
