1,000 gone, 18,000 left

Hopefully, Bush will keep the focus on the Syrian pullout and not chase after the more important, though more elusive, threat of Hizbollah. After listening to Rice on "Meet the Press" this morning, it seems like that is where they are focused. Syria has falling away from the herd (or as Bush would say, is out of step with the region) and, if things go well, Boy Assad won't be around too much longer. If a Syria emerges that won't provide resources to Hizbollah, then Hizbollah will be left with only one sugar daddy, Iran. And that will bode well for the Lebanese. However, if we get caught up trying to defeat Hizbollah in Lebanon, and they are still getting help from Syria and Iran, then that isn't good.
