Syrian Vice President Abdel-Halim Khaddam pointed the finger of blame atOf course he would point the finger at Israel. I'm just surprised it took this long. But the Israeli's wouldn't be THAT STUPID would they? After all, the entire Arab world would expect this from them. How could they think they would fool anyone?
Khaddam was among those who filed into Hariri's Beirut home to
pay condolences. "This crime targeted the Lebanese dream, Lebanese security and
Lebanese peace," said Khaddam, a personal friend of Hariri.
Syria's alleged role in Hariri's death, Khaddam said, "The Israelis have
assassinated an entire people [the Palestinians] and an entire region. So we
should expect the worst from them."
And on a lighter note, as we watch Syria blunder around, stepping on toes, I wonder how much longer it will be until we need to refresh our gas masks. Its been a couple years.
