Looking at the odds...


Right, I don't usually do this, but I feel like making a prediction.

Let's beat around Bush for a second though.

The soup du jour seems to be that nation-building is coming along nicely, thank you. From all corners of the arab world, tyrants are sleeping with one eye open.

To many, this shows the vigor of Bush's mid-east policy. The tangible results are seemingly undeniable, and milestones of this caliber aren't often on the menu. So they will be leveraged.

So, here it is: this summer. Fast and hard. The target is flexible. My guess is Damascus, but the USG could just as easily target a half dozen other States. If not this summer, it won't happen in an election year.

Time will tell.
