[Nettime-nl] NL steun aan oorlog tegen Iran,Syrie:

The war was going well, said Richard Perle, chairman of the Pentagon's
Defence Advisory Board. There were more anti-war demonstrators in San
Francisco than Iraqis willing to defend their leader. The "coalition of the
willing" was growing.
The fall of Mr Hussein would be an "inspiration" for Iranians seeking to be
free of their dictatorial mullahs, Mr Perle said.
While not speaking for the administration, such voices reflect the views of
the hawkish faction in the government - including Dick Cheney,
vice-president, Donald Rumsfeld, defence secretary, and Paul Wolfowitz, his
deputy - now in the ascendancy.
Michael Ledeen, a former Reagan administration official and author of The
War Against the Terror Masters, said this conflict was part of a "longer
war" and such terrorist-sponsors as Iran and Syria knew that. France and
Germany insisted on "shoring up tyrannical regimes". Anti-war demonstrators
had reached "new lows of disgustingness".
