Abu Yusuf, you are saluting Bush because you think that the Americans bounced the Syrians out of Lebanon. It was the Americans that authorized the Syrians to enter Lebanon in 75 and when the civil war ended in 1989 and it was time for Syria to pack up and leave, Bush Sr needed Arab players on his Iraq I team and Syria joined, got a 50 million write-down on its loans to the US and was given 10 years to have all the fun it wanted in Lebanon. If I read you correctly, you should not be so thankful, it was the Lebanese that threw out the Syrians.
