During a visit to Maryland, President Bush stated that Syria needed to pack up and head home.
His comments came while referencing the statements from Secretary of State Rice and French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier.
Arnold, Md. — U.S. President George W. Bush demanded in blunt terms Wednesday Syria get out of Lebanon, saying the free world is in agreement that Damascus's authority over the political affairs of its neighbor must end now.

The president is clearly taking the recent Iraqi election and the people in Lebanon protesting Syria as a sign that change is comming in the middle east. Will the leaders of Syria also see this and adapt or resist remains to be seen?
