Iran, Syria Pact Raises Eyebrows
BEIRUT, Lebanon — With shouts of "Syria out!," more than 25,000 flag-waving protesters massed outside Parliament on Monday in a dramatic display of defiance that swept out Lebanon's pro-Syrian government two weeks after the assassination of a former prime minister.

The Syrians are the Klingons of the Middle East.

I think Syria knows they're drawing closer and closer to a good Bitch slap if they don't cool their Shit.

I hope those Lebonites give them a swift kick in the ass on the way over the boarder.

There is some talk right now that Hussein's half brother was extracted by an American force without Syrian approval. Just another front for Syria to watch.

And a joke culled from that link:


A small Syrian boy finds a tarboush ("fez") in an old drawer, puts it on, and goes to tell his grandmother "look I'm Lebanese!" Wham, she slaps him across the face. "Go tell your mother."

Tearfully he goes to his mother, "Look Mum, I'm Lebanese!" Whack, she too clouts him across the face. "Go immediately and tell your father."

Desperately anxious, he goes to his father "Look, Daddy, I'm Lebanese!" The old man takes a stick and beats him blue. "Now what do you say to that?" he asks.

Between sobs the child says "I've only been Lebanese for five minutes, and already I hate all you Syrians."
