The Meaning of Ghanem's Murder

Here's my latest in The Daily Star on the Syrian regime's assassination of Antoine Ghanem.

Read it in tandem with Michael Young's latest piece, which I posted earlier today, to get a full picture.

Addendum: The UN Undersecretary General for Legal Affairs Nicholas Michel said Friday that he "see[s] a link between the assassinations in Lebanon and the establishment of the international tribunal, because its establishment will put an end, through punishment, to those responsible for the assassinations." He added, "the tragic consequences of the crime confirms the need for putting an end to impunity through the establishment of the special tribunal with an international character for Lebanon."

Update: It seems that I am in agreement in my proposal with the position of the PSP's Wael Abu Faour.
