Bush Has Exit Strategy... For Syria

Another 2,000 Bug Out, Chanting "Just Keep Timothy Haag Away From Us!"

Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya:

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Two thousand more Syrian troops have left Lebanon, lowering Syria's military presence to 8,000 soldiers, the smallest deployment it's had here since the second year of the country's 1975-90 civil war, a military official said.


At the time of Hariri's assassination, about 14,000 Syrian troops were in Lebanon. About 4,000 soldiers left in the first phase of a withdrawal that was completed March 17.

The Syrian army's presence made Damascus the power broker of Lebanese politics. The Lebanese opposition strongly resented Syria's domination, but the pro-Syrian government said Syrian troops were necessary for the country's stability.
