A thought on Syria 

The past few months a very big deal has been made about Syria withdrawing its troops from Lebonan. This has been portrayed as a big victory for freedom and US foriegn policy. Maybe it is that. But reading this headline today - Troops battle way toward Syria - I realized that maybe something else was in play with Syria's troop movements.

Maybe with 150,000 US troops within striking distance and at least some noises being made about invading Syria maybe the Syrian government realized it needs those troops at home more than in Lebonan. If so, a very prudent action.
