Before February 14th 2005, did you know who Rafiq al-Hariri was?
The US (via France) have threatened to impose sanctions on Syria, and have called for a ‘Free Lebanon’. But if that’s the case, why is France harbouring terrorists like Michel Aoun?
The US is counting down the days until May. They’ve said the elections will only be valid if Syria withdraws. By those standards I guess the Iraqi election was also illegitimate.
Syria can only gain by withdrawing. The Lebanese thorn is getting deeper and costing Syria more than just the lives of its peacekeeping soldiers.
