Tripartite attack

It was indeed a tripartite attack on Syria.  Yet, supporters of Gulf regimes in the Arabic press portrayed the description of tripartite as if it was a comparison between Nasser and Bashshar (when no such comparison was made or intended). It was a label to an attack by 3 Western powers.  Ironically, those same people who protested the analogy are the paid propagandists against Nasser in the Gulf media.  There is a level of zeal in defending the princes and kings in Arab media the likes of which I have not seen before.  Because for the first time there is no rival press (unless you include the small leftist Al-Akhbar newspaper in Beirut) given the death of Libyan and Iraqi funded press in the region.
