With the assassination of Gebran Tueni, the Lebanese politican at journalist being largely blamed on Syria, we see again that the Syrian oppression of the Lebanon is just ignored.
Former Prime Minster Rafik al Hariri, was also thought to be assassinated by the Syrian government.
Both men had been leading figures in calling for Syrian withdrawl from the Lebanon which they have occupied for 20 years, subverting the democratic process.
The fact is, if it was the Americans and not the Syrians that were at this, this site would have a hundred threads on what b*stards the Americans are. Why the double standard? The Leb is geographically closer to us then Iraq, but if someone sneezes in Baghdad, it makes the news, but the Syrian interference in the Leb is ignored, why?
