    Hmmm... has Rummy noticed that Syria seems to have the stuff Iraq didn't? By the Bush Administration's own standards, an attack on Syria would be more justified than the attack on Iraq was, seeing as how there's actual chemical weapons present in the case of the former. Or is it the pretense, yet absence, of chemical weapons that justifies action?
