Syria may have to feel the heat.

According to CNN and Fox news, President George W. Bush on Friday called on the United Nations to convene a session as soon as possible to deal with a U.N. investigative report implicating Syrian officials in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. I heard Dubya mention this live, and I am thinking that there may be an opprotunity for the USA to pop into Syria sometime soon.
"The report strongly suggests that the politically motivated assassination could not have taken place without Syrian involvement," Bush said after helping dedicate a new pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Southern California.
The President is at the Reagan Museum in Simi Valley CA for the grand opening of the Air Force One 707 showcase. It was President Reagan's dream for the public to be able to see inside Air Force One, and now it is a reality. I will be visiting soon.
The U.N. investigative report, which Bush called "deeply disturbing," established a link between high-ranking Syrian officials and their Lebanese allies in Hariri's murder February 14 in Beirut.
Earlier Friday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said she was deeply troubled by the U.N. report. She said the international community must find a way to hold Syrian authorities accountable. I am waiting to see if the strong anti terrorism push comes out of the UN meeting. If so as I said above, we may see US forces in Syria soon.
