Syrian Killing Machine Back in Action

I don't have much time, and I'll come back to this asap, but a quick comment on today's assassination of Gen. Francois Hajj.

This is a direct translation of that terrorist Farouq Sharaa's thuggish belligerent statement yesterday.

That the target was military is a message to Suleiman in case he had any ideas, but also, a message from Syria to whoever is to replace Suleiman as Army Commander. March 14 is said to have one contender lined up for the job, as part of the compromise over Suleiman. The Syrians just made their point the only way they do: through terrorism.

I hope the French are proud of themselves. Engage Syria means get Lebanese killed. Period.

More to come.
