LEBANON CAR BOMB ATTACK PERPETRATED BY SYRIAN INTEL

THE BOMB WHICH RIPPED THROUGH LEBANON TODAY WAS A STRIKE AT THE HEART OF REFORM IN LEBANON - BY SYRIA!

The Lebanese hammer blow that came down on the Bush administration from Beirut set back its plans to bring democratic reforms to the Middle East. US officials were still digesting the import of Iraq’s general election the day after its results were released in Baghdad. They were also still waiting for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to come up to scratch in fighting terrorism. Its impact will be regional in magnitude, affecting the next stage of Iraqi insurgency and the chances of a Palestinian-Israeli accommodation.

According to DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources, the assassination was staged by Syrian military intelligence headed by General Rostum Ghazala. It capped two years of attempts by the Bush administration to engage Assad by diplomacy. On February 14, the confrontation between Washington and Bashar Assad’s regime abruptly shot up to a new level: the Syrian president had decided to resort to the vicious tactics of Iraq and Lebanon’s ugly past, finally impelled by a circumstance that DEBKA-Net-Weekly 193 revealed on February 1:

For the first time in the annals of the Arab-Israeli dispute, Lebanon’s senior opposition politicians are pressing for the government in Beirut to recognize Israel and sign a separate peace treaty with the Jewish state - without reference to Damascus.

SYRIA IS DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVE AT THIS POINT... THEY HAVE DECIDED AGAIN AND AGAIN TO "SIDE WITH THE TERRORISTS". WE SHOULD START TREATING THEM LIKE THE TERRORIST STATE THEY ARE...
