Siniora calls for embassies, border with Syria

October 18th, 2005 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

Fuad Siniora has crossed a Syrian-Lebanese red line by asking for embassies in Beirut and Damascus, and formal demarcation of the border for the first time since Lebanon’s creation.

Bashar Al-Assad called for something similar during the troop withdrawal, but it has not happened until now.

In another development, a former Syrian Intelligence agent, who fled to Paris has been arrested by French police for lying to the UN investigation. It’s not clear whether he is the same man who said Syria has purchased the explosives used in the Hariri murder.

    If Lebanese will need a visa, Syrians will need one too! Just check how many Lebanese visit Syria annually vs how many Syrians visit Lebanon. Also while you are at it, check how many Syrians work in Lebanon vs. how many Lebanese work in Syria?
    Unfortuanely, The mafia Asad regime put hatred between the people of Lebanon and Syria and dictator Asad does not care because he is sucking the money out of the poor Syrian who are really suffering from that bad relationship.

    Hareri put Lebanon under thirty bilion dollars of debt giving contracts to himself and his cronies while syria has no forign debt what the lebanese did to Syria in the last nine month will never be forgotten ,the plan is to push Syrians out of Lebanon so the lebanese will give the palestenians work in lebanon on the way to settle them there forgetting palestine forever,the syrian who go to lebanon can go to europ and with the investment coming to syria with the reform that is being implemented the syrian workers will not need to go to lebanon God bless syria and protect it from freind and brothers like lebanon and the rest of the arab countrie,unfortionatly.

    I spit on the Hariri family. Long live Assad and Syria, and may he be the one to finally destroy Israel. The Lebanese are the most pathetic and ungrateful Arabs in the Middle East. They will be BEGGING for Syria to come back, after they are fed up with taking it up the ass from America and Israel again.
