Arab Leaders Urge Syria to Leave Lebanon
This might be our second flying pig sighting of the day. We are truly living in interesting times. Saudi Arabia and Egypt are demanding that Syria leave Lebanon.

Abdullah told Assad the kingdom insists on the full withdrawal of all Syria's 15,000 troops and intelligence forces from Lebanon and wants it to start "soon," the Saudi official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
What the heck is going on here? There must be some serious arm twisting going on behind the scenes.

Remember when the anti-war crowd said that going against world opinion would weaken our position and inflame Arab opinion against us? Remember the Kerry campaign hand-wringing about frayed alliances and needing to repair relationships? How's that going? It seems the old cowboy knows how to make friends and influence people after all.
Wow, I can hardly believe it myself, even though I *supported* our foreign policy. I can't imagine what the Democrats must be thinking...
