Today's Cartoon: Allies Encourage Bush to Work With Iran and Syria

I'm confused... Is Britain joining the”Axis of Evil" or is Syria and Iran about to become members of the "Coalition of the Willing"... or is it both?

While I believe that getting Syria and Iran involved in stabilizing Iraq is practically essential at this point, I really don't see how threats of "isolation" are going to persuade them to rush to the aid of Britain and the United States any faster (if at all); especially since all they have to do is sit back and do nothing to allow the situation to continue to get worse for Bush and Blair, while continuing to improve for themselves.

Now, I can understand George W. Bush's reluctance to open a dialogue with Syria and Iran. I mean, in less than a week he's lost both house of congress to the Democrats and the White House to his father, so it makes sense that he wouldn't want to lose Iraq to the "Axis of Evil" as well... at least not this week.

You know, I'm pretty sure that if you listen carefully, you can probably hear the sound of neoconservatives in the States, banging their heads against a wall in unison.
