Sad State of Affairs

Posted by Jabawacefti

The future of Lebanon does not look good, from Michael Totten via Andrew Sullivan:

What is happening in the Lebanon is a tragedy for the Lebanese, a horrible - and terrifying - conundrum for the Israelis, and a disaster for US policy in the wider struggle against Islamic extremism. And, oh yes, it is not, unfortunately, going to bring an end to Hezbollah...
“What will become of us?” is the question on everyone’s mind. No one can know what will happen after Israel lifts its siege and the temporary national unity flies apart into pieces. And it will fly apart into pieces. The only question is how far the pieces will fly and how hard they'll land.

Agreed.

Past the chest-thumping righteousness of the Hammer, this is what the conflict comes down to in my eyes.

I have no sympathy for Hezbollah, but I have enormous sympathy for the Lebanese people and for the people of Israel.
