Bashar Al Assad and Michel Sleiman are meeting in Damascus. Hizbollah and March 14 are working together in Beirut. Syria and Lebanon have healed their wounds.
And Syria is coming in from the cold, internationally.
No wonder the anti-Syrians are having a fit. Have a look at this rant from George Bush’s token Syrian friend – the “please invade Syria” cheerleader in Washington:
“If Assad wants to recognize Lebanon, why has he not, as protocol dictates, not visit Lebanon instead of inviting Gen. Suleiman to Syria? When was the last time Assad visited Lebanon? He never did because like a loyal Ba’athist, he considers it as part of Greater Syria. If anyone can confirm this protocol occurring please write me, otherwise, please consider the notion that it is simply too early to roll the red carpet for Assad.”
The trouble is, Michel Sleiman has invited Bashar to Beirut, and Bashar has accepted. It was a desperate argument in the first place. And it shows how desperate the ‘attack-Syria’ lobby in Washington has become.
Start polishing your red carpet, Mr Syrian Chalabi.
