Lebanese government says weapons truck wasn't from Syria

Lebanon's Defense Minister Elias Murr says the weapons truck intercepted outside Beirut didn't come from Syria. And he went on to say NO weapons have come across the border.

"The ammunition did not come from Syria, but are from within Lebanon," said Murr. "We are in full control of the Lebanese-Syrian border."

"Not even a mosquito enters without us knowing," said Murr. "There are no arms entering from Syria."

Hizbollah has admitted it owns the weapons, which were being transported down to the south. The Defence Minister is refusing to give them back - he says it is a "gift" to the Lebanese army.

The weapons "will be presented to the Lebanese troops stationed in the South who proved themselves that they can protect Lebanon against Israeli aggression."

Nowadays, even El Nino is Syrian.

Too bad for Bush. If Elias Murr keeps on giving such TRUE information to the public the CIA might murder him and blame it on Syria or Iran. Too bad that the arabs' only savior and hero SYRIA is getting blamed for everything and left out in the cold by their own brethren, the arabs. Bashar, why not just en this pan-arabism charade? the Saudis, egyptians, jordanians etc. they dont deserve it WORK ON THE PAN-SYRIANISM! We need to build up Syria and not the ME, we start at home. Look at UAE!!
