The Irony Continues...

Without comment.

"We want democracy to survive...We know that democracy cannot survive while [Lebabnon is] occupied by a foreign force." G.W. Bush 4/3/05

Both of them stood up and said loud and clear to Syria: 'You get your troops and your secret services out of Lebanon so that good democracy has a chance to flourish,'" G.B. Bush (Anne Arundel Community College)

And suddenly the UN has a say:

"Words are one thing, actions are another," said State Department spokesman Adam Ereli. "We've heard maybe Syrian troops moving in a couple of months. We've heard a variety of things, none of which gets to the heart of the matter."... He added: "We're not hearing what 1559 calls for, which is full and immediate withdrawal of all foreign forces from Lebanon. Those are the magic words, and we haven't heard them yet."

Not to be left behind:

Mr. Blair told Al Arabiya, "The international community will not tolerate anybody trying to interfere with the right of the Lebanese people to elect their own government."
