Lebanese Dedication.


Lebanese opposition displays his national pride on his head:


Lebanon's The Daily Star, meanwhile, seems impressed by George W. Bush's straight talk (Tuesday):

U.S. President George W. Bush warned Syrian-backed officials in Lebanon against postponing May's parliamentary elections, and reiterated his demand that Syrian troops and intelligence services fully withdraw from the country. In his sternest warning to Damascus for some time, Bush said: "It's important for this election to take place on time."

He added: "When they say, 'We're going to leave the country,' we expect troops and security forces to leave. It's simple."

Today, also from The Daily Star, with a bit of humor thrown in:

Syria picks up pace of troop withdrawal

More than 100 Syrian military trucks left Lebanon on Wednesday, carrying troops, weapons, equipment, furniture and ... Lebanese cows, according to witnesses.

According to locals in the Masnaa area at least one Syrian military truck was seen leaving for the border overnight carrying a number of cows who earlier in the day had been happily grazing in Lebanese pastures.

The ultimate destination of the unfortunate cattle was unclear at the time The Daily Star went to press, but locals insist they were loaded up and bound for Damascus along with more usual Syrian military hardware such as missiles and radars.

It is understood no one from Lebanon has reported any missing cattle so it is likely the bovines are the property of the Syrian Army.

The President is right it is important for the elections to take place on time. As for the cows, Where are those PETA people when they are really needed. Those poor Lebanese bovine are probably going to be eaten by the lebanese army... Yum, I love lebanese food! Mmmmm meat pies! DOh!
