Syria Gets Outta Lebanon

Syria has finally, fully withdrawn from Lebanon after months of international pressure to do so. Syria has had troops in Lebanon for 29 years. Syria initially showed up to assist in Lebanon’s civil war. The civil war ended in 1990 but Syria stuck around, giving Damascus the decisive say in Lebanese politics.

I’m glad Syria decided to fully withdrawl as I didn’t really see much of a point in them being there any longer. Lebanon’s flag kicks ass too, I like that little tree. It looks like it could be tasty…
