Are Iran and Syria trying to overthrow the Lebanese government

After Hariri's assassination and following popular uprising forcing Syria to withdraw all influence from their puppet state, Syria with Iran's help might be looking to subvert the current Lebanese government.

The U.S. is "increasingly concerned by mounting evidence that the Syrian and Iranian governments, Hezbollah and their Lebanese allies are preparing plans to topple Lebanon's democratically elected government," the White House said in a statement.

The Bush administration said there are "indications" Syria is trying to disrupt passage of a statute by the Lebanese government permitting an international tribunal to try those accused of involvement in former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri's assassination. The U.S. statement noted that an international tribunal can be established "no matter what happens in Lebanon."

Terrorists in liege with Iran and Syria? Surely not?! I wonder where we've heard that before...

Oh, and that sounds like a pretty damn good reason to not let nations that cooperate with terrorists (**cough**Iran**cough**) get nuclear weapons, don't ya think?
