Murder... Syrian Style

Below is a chronology of some of the major political assassinations in Lebanon over the last three decades. All of these people at one time or another had dealings with the Syrians. As soon as they outlived their usefulness or disagreed with something the Syrian dictatorship did, they were murdered and others were blamed. Well, we know who the real murderers are. Hopefully Hafez Al Assad is burning in hell with his son soon to join him.
