Shocking. Shocking, I Tell You

In my early morning reading regimen, I came across this shocking bit of news in the Washington Post.

Syria has not withdrawn a significant part of its intelligence presence in Lebanon, undermining its claim yesterday to have ended its 29-year intervention in its western neighbor, U.S., European and U.N. officials said.

The international community yesterday welcomed the pullout of the last of 14,000 Syrian troops from Lebanon. But the continuing presence of covert Syrian intelligence operatives would violate the promise President Bashar Assad made to the United Nations last month to withdraw all Syrian personnel. It would also contradict a letter the Syrian government wrote to U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan yesterday saying that the withdrawal was complete.

What? You mean the Syrians might actually lie? To the UN Secretary General?

That just can’t be. I mean, lying to the UN brings such terrible consequences that I can’t imagine anyone would dare to take the chance.


No. Really.

Read the story.

Oh no. The UN might issue the dreaded “sanction”.

Trench, I don’t think so—they have to consider the likelihood that somebody might actually try to enforce it.

And we certainly can’t have that.
