Lebanese leader on first trip to arch-foe Syria - CNN.com
If they assasinated the guy, then it happened a long time ago by another leader, or by this one? Why would they assasinate them? Because he didn;t want to play along? If someone was to be appointed leader then they better play along or this kind of thing happens!
Now it is the issue of whether he was killed by the neighbours, what do they stand to gain out of it? Was war imminent? Was there anything to gain by killing him? If there was nothing to gain by killing him, no money, no security, why would they? It was probably some rebels inside the country that tried to blame the others, someone with something to gain. Motive. That's what it comes down to I reckon. No motive... motive. Cut and dried if you ask me!
