ABSTRACT
One of the more forgotten aspects of the U.S. war on terror is Washington's determination to maintain a hardline stance on Syria. Libya's decision to come in from the cold has been broadly welcomed, but the imposition of sanctions on Syria has received relatively little attention. There is no doubt that current U.S. policy on Syria is a logical development of its attitudes towards Damascus over the past decade and more. Syria has long been viewed with suspicion by Washington and the decision to impose Iran Libya Sanctions Act style sanctions has been in the pipeline for some time.
