"In recent months, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton promised that the United States would support the Syria opposition with nonlethal assistance, such as communications gear.

The editorial page of the Washington Post is a jacobin neocon mouthpiece. The Post, far more than Israel, wants to see revolution for revolution's own sake spread across the Middle Eastern and Islamic worlds. The fantasy that they have indulged themselves in at the Post to reach this "doctrine" is the idea that societies friendly to Israel and the West will result from such revolutions.
