Syria engaging in pointless tit-for-tat

"Syria is preparing a law that would prohibit trade dealings with the United States in response to U.S. sanctions imposed on the Arab country last month, Syrian legislators said Saturday. More than 130 members of the 250-seat legislature have prepared a draft of the 'America Accountability Act' that would impose 'strict sanctions' on American interests in Syria... 'We are not simple-minded to the degree that we imagine we can affect the great American economy,' [legislator Muhammad Habash] said. 'But we are able to maintain our dignity and slap the Americans so they know that if they continue with their arrogant policies, people everywhere around the globe will spit at them.' In May, President Bush banned all U.S. exports to Syria except for food and medicine, and banned Syrian flights to and from the United States."
