The lebanese shut down Syria military route

Now that's a good start: Lebanon closed a military route that crossed its border into Syria, ending nearly three decades of unmonitored flow of high-ranking officials and goods between the two countries, the official National News Agency reported Sunday. The closure came nearly eight months after Syria withdrew its troops from Lebanon amid international pressure and street protests over allegations that Damascus played a role in February's assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Syria denies involvement in Hariri's death. Good. Now the next step is to start rounding up suspicious syrians in Lebanon and interrogating them. Hell, deporting them may even be a good idea. Send them back to psycho Syria. At least until the assassinations stop or the Rafiq Harriri commision is done with its work, you know?

I believe it's not as much the 'suspicious' Syrians there as it is the Lebanese in the police, politics, on the bench and in the army that are in the Syrian's pockets... and that's not even counting Hezbollah. Syrian is still pulling strings through its mafia like control there obviously.

When the Lebanese media and police can start shaming, arresting and going after the Syrian stooges and getting them out then they'll slowly weaken the Syrian puppet controls.
