Syria-Lebanon
The Bell for Round 3?
2003-10-09
The House International Relations Committee approved the Syria Accountability and Lebanese Sovereignty Restoration Act, which would give the president the right to impose a variety of sanctions on Syria. The bill, which passed by a 33-2 vote, accuses Syria of sponsoring terrorists, seeking weapons of mass destruction, and occupying Lebanon with more than 20,000 troops.

#1  I expect the Bush administration to put pressure on Syria but to avoid military confrontation until Iraq is settled a bit more and the 2004 elections are decided. Of course we wouldn't want Syria to know the timeline.
