Syria Got It All Wrong

It's not about Syria attempting to have peace talks for 18 months with Israel. Although that is a good thing. But it is not deserving of a big pat on the back.

Syria is still harboring terrorists in their country and has made no attempt to do any of the following:
  1. Expose terrorist activities within Syria's boundaries.
  2. Punish exposed terrorists within Syria's boundaries.
  3. Actively seek terrorists and their locations within Syria's boundaries based on tips or activity noticed.
  4. Actively promote peace with Syria's neighbors in a nationwide campaign to have its citizens give information to the government that would lead to the arrest or conviction of insurgents, terrorists, and other criminals.
Perhaps if it tries doing these things, then they would receive a good report from the United States of America.

If you avoid the appearance of evil, then you will not be blamed for evil-doing. Eh? Pretty good philosophy you think? It's a proverb.
