LinkBEIRUT (Reuters) ? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed on Sunday that the United States would never sell out Lebanon in any deal with Syria and she urged the Lebanese to hold an "open and fair" election in June.
"There is nothing that we would do in any way that would undermine Lebanon's sovereignty," Clinton told reporters after talks with President Michel Suleiman in Beirut. "The United States will never make any deal with Syria that sells out Lebanon and the Lebanese people.
Supply weapons to Israel to bomb the holy hell out of Lebanon? Sure. But will we sell Lebanon out to Syria? Never.
