Security Council Creates Hariri Assassination Tribunal
— Ace

Why do we bother? We know Putin had Litvenenko killed and we know the drooling imbeclie Bashar Assad had Hariri killed.

Well, we don't know that. He's such a buffoon his supposed-inferiors probably gave the order themselves, as they do with most matters of state. But the Syrian government, as a whole, ordered the hit.

At least we can get these guys:

Lebanese authorities are currently holding eight people over the Hariri killing. They are four pro-Syrian generals who headed Lebanese security departments at the time and four members of a small Syrian-backed Sunni Muslim group alleged to have played a role in monitoring Hariri’s movements.

Syria has responded, of course, with a threat to put their owned-and-operated terrorist group Hezbollah into action:

Syria: UN Tribunal May Destabilize Lebanon

That's pretty much as subtle as their last statement:

Syria: Hariri's Defiance May Destabilize His Heart-rate, Brain Activity

And we all know how prescient that "warning" turned out to be.

Don't hold your breath on justice being done.  These are the same kinds of people that just found Wolfowitz guilty of ethics violations for doing what the World Bank ethics board told him to do.


My bet is they'll find that Bush ordered the assassination and Cheney carried it out.


And then they'll condemn Israel.

2 Ya know, it's posts like this that real piss off Juan Cole.

When are you going to apologize? WHEN??!?

3 The best reason is because Assad has been so damned terrified of the thing. He's been willing to sacrifice as much of Lebanon as it takes to avoid a tribunal.

Of course the joke's on them because we all know that if he did it, Cheney would've shot the guy in the face, and then used his corpse as a condom. Then he'd have brought the semen encrusted corpse to the UN Security Council and said "Top this faggots!"

5 At this point, a threat by any middle-eastern leader to plunge the region into instability is like Rosie O'Donnel threatening to devour four buckets of extra crispy chicken.

6 Don't underestimate the Frogs, though -- they're hardheaded enough to rig this the right way.

8 But will this interfere with Syria helping us in Iraq? That's the plan according to the Democrats, right?

BTW-Will Pelosi contribute to her new BFF's defense fund?
