MSM media is supporting Lebanon?

Raja just pointed out something fairly strange: The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times and The New York Times all ran editorials on the same day that condemned the Security Council's resolution concerning Mehlis' investigation into Hariri's murder for not being stricter on Syria. Whoa! Even Raja can't believe it! Wow! Three editorials published on the same day from news papers that have been relatively hostile to the Bush Administration's foreign policy! Could this mean good tidings for Lebanon? I definitely hope so! For, considering the watered down resolution that the Security Council passed, we definitely need good tidings! Indeed.

hey sandmonkey, what about the article written last thursday by Hassan Nafaa in Al Ahram Weekly?
title is " That Universal declaration of rights" , it is a good laugh but maybe you can help explain to me how come is this guy a Professor in political science?
Ohh, it used to be alot better last year, he wrote a few articles defending the syrian forces in Lebanon & how that if Syria leaves lebanon would fall prey to Israel & the US, blah blah blah.... ofcourse he withheld the unimportant piece of info that syria entered Lebanon since 1976 & hasnt stopped the Israelis entering the country twice without any major escalation (battle) between syria & Israel, wasnt it 1978 & again in 1982? they didnt stop the israelis from occupying half of beirut did they? gee, mabe it just me & my old age but what do you say sir monkey?

There's something wrong here. They must be working some kind of angle where they get to criticise Bush at some point. Maybe they want the Bush administration to get active and start agitating, and then they can call them a bunch of hothead and idiots, for messing everything up?

Not surprised the other papers follow the NY Times lead, though. That's pretty standard. The NYT sets the tone for our newspapers, all across the country.
