"The president was clear that Syria's support for the two movements will continue and that their resistance to regain occupied land was a legitimate right" It might be worth thinking if Syria's declared support is not preferable to a situation in which these to movements were alltogether dependent from Iran. Maybe Syria can thus take some influence from Ahmadinejad. Hezbollah will not disappear. One day it shall have the status of a simple shiite party. For me, who favours an independent Lebanon, the question is, if support for Hezbollah in opposition to the Western held Siniora government is even justified for the moment. Some days ago, the European Union was complaining about a lack of Syrian cooperation with the EU. Should it be different? It is correct (!) that Syria preserves some sense of refusal. Syria has a difficult diplomatic task in the East. I do not want the planet to become americanized. For the rest read Aluf Benn's "Bush forbidding Olmert from talking to Syria.
