Just a quick passing thought about Syria

Just a quick thought about Syria and Lebanon...

I don't know about you, but I get a slight feeling of hypocrisy when I hear President Bush demand that Syaria completely pull their troops out of Lebanon while at the same time we have forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Don't get me wrong, we have a specific reason for us being in Iraq and Afghanistan. There's work that still has to be done in both places. The question I have, though, is what is Syria doing there in Lebanon, and are they done with what they need to do?

Maybe if we established that part, we can look at what needs to be done to get Syria out of the area. But as it is right now, just saying "get out" sends mixed signals.
