What is not known about the recent crisis in Lebanon

From the best source on Lebanon, this latest post , and some others...

I very much liked this one... And this one...

Juan Cole has excellent witness information and comment on the situation

In The Guardian, Nicholas Noe, 'A dangerous strategy'.

P.S.
Sorry I am not writing these days... 2008 has just started, barely five months into this year and it might well be my annus horribilis, as it will be for Lebanese who live in Lebanon...
However my problems are nothing compared to the uncertainties and insecurity in which most Lebanese live, and in a way the grim prospects in Lebanon definitely have a negative impact on my already somber mood.
I am not reading blogs, I am not writing on my blog, and I spend my time on little annoyances...
Hopefully I will be returning to normal activity soon.

Take heart Sophia.

Of course I feel for your anguish. It looks like the Lebanese tragedy never ends. But as long as outside parties meddle there is little hope of any change.
It always has me sneer when, in the west, they qualify governments and parties as pro-western as if it was something positive, something reassuring.

Like you I think As'ad hits the mark practically every time.

Lebanon has a disadvantage of being on a boarder with Israel.
