Syria Threatens Strike Against Lebanon

On the two-year anniversary of the start of its uprising, Syria is as angry as ever. On Friday the warring nation’s foreign ministry warned the Lebanese government that it may strike if the Lebanese rebels hiding near the border are not stopped. Over the course of two days, a “large number” of rebels have sneaked into Syria’s Tel Kalakh, targeting Syrian people and ignoring their laws. Although Syria has exercised restraint toward Lebanon thus far, its warning could mean impending doom for Lebanon. Heads up, Lebanon. When Syria says it’s angry, it means it.
