News for 12-12-05

12-12-05 - Syria Eyed in Death of Lebanese Editor A previously unknown group claimed responsibility, but suspicion quickly settled on Syria Imagine, an anti-Syrian Lebanese journalist gets car-bombed on the very day that the UN report on the Hariri assassination is to be delivered, what a coincidence!

12-12-05 - The Syrian Gambit Unravels The utter absurdity of UN Security Council resolution 1363 ? which calls on Syria to cooperate fully with an international commission investigating the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri or face possible "further action" ? can be easily seen if we imagine that the UN had taken a similar interest in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Picture Lyndon Baines Johnson and top members of the U.S. government being called in by a United Nations "prosecutor" for questioning. It's interesting that the same American "conservatives" who waste no opportunity to show their disdain for the UN and would have risen in armed revolt if the UN had intervened in the Kennedy affair, are now upholding the UN's authority to "investigate" the murder of Hariri and pin it on Syria.
