    The deal France wants to make will make the Rafik murder investigation go away. Chirac promised better than that to Rafik before he died and his son and the March 14 forces afterward. Lebanon has to make concessions to Syria for any French/EU deal. If this isn't, at least in part, a war by Syria against Lebanon via Hezbollah then why should Lebanon make concessions to Syria? Syria always likes to be both the fireman and the arsonist. It would be a bad idea to let them continue to get away with that, but if Lebanon will not stand up to Syria right now, why should anyone else? The Lebanese against Syrian control of Lebanon are today like the French were when occupied by Germany, except it doesn't look like anyone is going to go far enough to really save them. France certainly won't. When they were in a similar position they would not even save themselves.
