Has Syria been let off the hook?

Victor Davis Hanson aruing that Time is on our Side included one paragraph on Syria in his otherwise fine review of the aftermath.
Somewhere amid all of this hysteria, we were told in one 24-news cycle that we were ready to "invade" Syria. Yet — no matter how odious the Syrian dictatorship — there is little likelihood the United States will use force to liberate Lebanon, expel its terrorists, publicly hunt down refugee Iraqi Baathists inside Damascus, or topple the regime.
I found this very disturbing because I didn't want it to be true. After the flurry of attacks on Syria, then nothing, except for a visit to Damascus that Powell has announced.

What is going on here. I thought the intention was to clean out Lebanon. There is a big story here.
