Jewboy, you have a reasonable memory but poor understanding. Why should I admire Syria for what they did in Lebanon? Whatever they did was in their own interests. I also do not admire Israel for what it does in the West Bank. Syria stopped the Civil war in Lebanon, which made the place more reasonable as a neighbor for Israel. And it provided an address for blame when things went wrong, such as Hizballah attacks. In the last war Israel tried blaming the Lebanese government. Blame them, but they can't control anything. You better try to understand how things work in the world. Perhaps you think the recent Lebanon war was a good thing.. As far as kicking Syria out, there was a reason for my regret, and it is still valid. If you remember it, try to rethink (or think, for the first time).
