Meanwhile in Syria....

....things are changing rapidly.
Tens of thousands marched Monday in the biggest anti-Syrian protest in Lebanese history amid signals that Syria will soon withdraw its troops from parts of the country. President Bush renewed demands for Syrian forces to leave Lebanon immediately.
Not that President Bush had anything to do with it, but....
The Arab League chief said Monday that Syria will "soon" take steps to withdraw its army from Lebanese areas in accordance with a 1989 agreement.

The announcement by Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa came after a meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"Assad stressed more than once his firm determination to go on with implementing the Taif agreement and achieve Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon in accordance with this agreement," Moussa said.

"Syrian withdrawal is part of Syrian policy and will see steps in this direction very soon," Moussa quoted Assad as saying. Syria itself has made no announcements about troop withdrawals.
Just pure coincidence, I suppose. On the other hand, the pressure is building, and the world is watching.

Things are changing so fast in the MidEast, it's getting hard to keep up, isn't it?

Yet the UN is still trying to sell gloom and doom in a desperate attempt to divert attention from their own sex scandals, not to mention the Oil For Food scandal (or UNSCAM as I call it.)

It's a crazy upside down world these days.

UPDATE: Whoops! Looks like the UN is wrong.
