WorldNetDaily: Bush gives Syria 'non-negotiable' deadline

It appears that BUSH will not allow ASSAD to play any games with the Lebanon withdrawl. Bush wants Syria out ... and he wants them out now.
President Bush has given Syria a "non-negotiable" deadline to pull all of its troops and agents out of Lebanon by May to pave the way for free parliamentary elections.

"The subject that is most on my mind right now is getting Syria out of Lebanon, and I don't mean just the troops out of Lebanon, I mean all of them out of Lebanon, particularly the secret service out of Lebanon -- the intelligence services," he told members of the New York Post editorial board in an interview yesterday.

"This is non-negotiable. It is time to get out. ... I don't think you can have fair elections with Syrian troops there," Bush continued.

If Bush can succeed in "freeing" Lebanon from Syrian control, this may be the tipping point which can even further accelerate the march of freedom and democracy in the Middle East...
