Bush increases pressure on Syria

US President George Bush has said using force against Syria would be a "last resort" in the dispute over its alleged role in the death of Rafik Hariri.

He said he hoped Syria would co-operate with the UN inquiry into the killing.
A UN interim report on the killing of the former Lebanese prime minister implicated Syria and Lebanon - a charge both countries deny.
The UN Security Council is to discuss the report on Tuesday, and is expected to hear calls for action against Syria.


The report says the likely motive for Hariri's assassination was political - the former prime minister was increasingly at odds with pro-Syrian President Emile Lahoud at a time when Syria was the main power in Lebanon.
International pressure after his death led to Syria withdrawing its forces from the country.

I fucking hate this double standard bullshit. If it was Iraq instead of Syria and if we didn't already bomb the shit out of Iraq and tear the country to shreds, we would've invaded.

I say we start a bet right now on whether or not we will exercise another 'police action' before GWB is out of office....

Impeached next week? Who the hell will impeach him? That might start a "war on impeachment" and we might have to take police action for the good of the country. I wish the assassination attempt would have been on him! So now we have war on porn, war on global warming, war on excessive government spending... where the war on our right infringements? Why dont we worry about the USA, ya know.. HOME!? Were the ones with an absolute dictatorship. I wouldnt be surpised if I had a couple sheriffs come down with a warrant for my arrest for my assassination comment because of the "Patriot Act". Fuck America and everything it stands for now. Syria is just trying to fix itself, no need to police it when they are doing what we need to.

Don't you know already? No one succeeds at an assasination without permission.
