Pot and Kettle

The President talked about Syria's actions in Lebanon and their destabilizing effects. Has is par for the terrorist, Hezbollah had to step in.

Hezbollah MP Hassan Fadlallah told Reuters that Bush's comments on Thursday had further complicated efforts to forge a deal between the governing coalition and the Syria-backed opposition, which have been locked in a power struggle for more than a year.

They tend to forget that their own actions have been just a bit complicating, you know like blowing up opposition leaders. Among other actions.

The nine previous sessions have failed because a two-thirds quorum in parliament can only be secured by an agreement between the governing coalition and the opposition, led by Hezbollah.

Hezbollah wants the power to overrule the new president with a veto power, insuring Syria can continue control of Beirut.  But it could be just an excuse to keep things deadlock. And don't forget earlier this year many of the anti-Syria leaders were killed, enough to insure no action can be taken in parliament without Hezbollah's consent.
