Out of the frying pan...

Bashar Assad of Syria suddenly has unwanted attention from a nation whose president has the will and ability to knock off tin pot dictators who support terror and destabilization.

To bring you up to speed, a bomb rocked downtown Beirut on Monday in what appears to have been a successful effort to assassinate former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. Hariri opposed Syria's incursion into Lebanon and demanded that they pull their troops, per a toothless UN resolution to do so.

Now we're pulling our ambassador. Bashar Assad may want to remember that he has several U.S. Army divisions next door in Iraq, he has no real army to speak of, and there's nobody ready to come to his rescue.

Stay tuned.
