Surprise! Lahoud & Assad cancel their travel plans

I can't help but muse about the fact that both Presidents Lahoud of Lebanon and Assad of Syria have cancelled upcoming trips abroad, citing local circumstances in Syria/Lebanon as the common reason. Assad was scheduled to visit Austria, and Lahoud was due to attend the Arab League Summit.

I wonder how much heat they must be feeling under their seats, right now. As the French saying goes, "Qui va a la chasse, perd sa place". Translation (without the rhyme): If you go hunting, you risk losing your spot. I guess, that must be the real reason.
