"Dirty Israeli hands attacked the statue and those hands will be cut off for committing this stupid act," he said.



Yeah, I don't think I'd be bringing up cutting off limbs if I were in the position the Syrian leaders find themselves. I think I'd sway as far from that kind of violence as I could lest I become the victim instead of the perpetrator. Nows the time for Syrain leaders to be preaching non-violence because this thing could get ugly in a flash.

WHO? It's as far left as you can go .... so far left it's looking backwards
and if it went any further to the left, it would be turned around and facing
right.

Many say that intelligence prior to the invasion of Iraq revealed
that much of Saddam's WMD were moved and hidden in the Bekaah Valley
of Lebanon. As part of his promised withdrawl, Assad indicated that
he will move Syrian troops to this area. I think he's getting nervous
and he's circling the wagons around Saddam's old WMD. The withdrawl
isn't because Lebanon wants it. It's because Junior (Assad) is afraid of
other countries coming in to assist Lebanon and finding the WMD booty
in the cross fire.

The Syrians are playing a very clever tactical game here. They are playing absolutely to the hands of Bush and Israel's demands. This is more cosmetic. Since objection only makes them a pariah state. When the bully demands, cunningness wins the game.

What remains to be seen is how the Syrian intelligence control Lebanon hereafter. For all intents and purposes it will look like Syria is the best obedient child in the ME at the mo.

We just have to wait and see.

Am I the only one who sees the potential for disaster with this type of emotional demonstrations? A grenade lobbed into a crowd like that by an agent provocateur could instantly turn what has been a rejoicelful and nationalistic passion-filled event into a bloody riot and war between Lebanon and Syria.

Funny how no one even cares about finding out who the perpetrators of the assassination really were anymore. Let's just get all hot-headed and blame it on the Syrians and be done with it. Anyway, they buy weapons from the Russians so they must be a terrorist nation. Let's use the magic word, "al-Qaeda" and link 'em to terrorism, then we can invade them too. Yeeeeehaw!!!

The UN is carrying out an investigation and they claim they will soon unveil a cover-up at the highest levels, the revelations of which will be shocking. UN to reveal Hariri 'cover-up'

The UN investigation is implicating the Syrians and pro syrian lebanese government in the cover up.

if you're saying that such a move would not be advantageous for the Syrians then you're correct. They have nothing to gain from this; only backlash. To not credit them with the intelligence to forsee the outcome we are seeing now is a little bit of a stretch. Anyone could guess that the Syrians would be the first to be blamed for the assassination, evidence or no, and that is exactly what has occured.


I'd have to see some clear illustration of motive before I'll be convinced that the Syrians were responsible.

I really don't think it matters at this point..and I really don't think the future of Lebanon is hinging on your determination of who's guilty. The whole operation is about getting away with or from Saddam's old WMDs.

Funny how some members on here post as if they some how make the decisions and somehow their reasoning will affect world events. We are but spectators and thats it. The plan, if there was one, is already set in motion.

The Syrians aren't doing anything cunning. They're realizing they backed the wrong pony and trying to get out without taking the heat. I don't blame. I would too. Why sit on these weapons if you have them? Anyone who would buy them or use them will provide a clear cut path back to where they came from when caught. Saddam isn't in any position to follow through with any promises. Time to forget him and disassociate with his junk.

No, I don't think it is hanging on my determination either. It is hanging on the determination. The asassination was the sole spark for the events we see unfolding now. The revlation of "whodunnit" will have enourmous impact on future events, as evidenced by Ananaki's post above.

No, I never held such a delusion. I'm sorry if the tone of my posts gave you that impression. Some of the content here has spilled over from another thread where Nygdan and I were discussing the possible/alleged perpetrators of the assasination.

Well, everyone outside the US, for one.


Seriousely, though, i'm not kidding. Most people outside the US consider CNN a right-wing Americanised view. For that matter, alot of people outside the US think that America has 2 right-wing parties.

A moderate-right and a extreme-right.

Yeah, that just goes to show me what a jacked-up view the rest of the world has if that is the case. A recent study done throughout our last election proved conclusively that CNN had a major bias toward the liberal party.

It just may be that it isn't the rest of the world's view but merely a handful of squeeky wheels much like our activist here in the US. They really account for a small percentage of the population (because most everyone else is busy working their rears off) but they get most of the airtime. One could make the determination that they speak for the majority when in actuality, they do not.

I'm not arguing that most of the world doesn;t hate the US, just that most don;t see CNN as a rightwing media source..in fact most of the negative views probably hatch on CNN.

I was so pulling for Kerry this time because I'm so sick of the whining...and I thought..if it passifies them, maybe we can calm down a bit but I knew as soon as that SOB won, we'd have another 4 years of this crybaby crap from the rest of the world. Kerry would have done not a damn thing different but its all in perception. Bush doesn't decide the agenda, he just gets to sit in the chair while its being carried out.

So now, everything the US does is right wing and conservative...even when its not. George Bush is as far left of being a true conservative as anybody I have ever seen. But, people don't take time to get past labels. They will ultimatly be our downfall. Once a label is applied, thats it. No matter the content, we'll swear up and down thats it. Its our nature I guess.

Yep, conservatism in the US has really changed it's meaning ever since the Reagan days. If you want to see a truly traditional conservative party and a traditional left party, you should come to Australia.
