My best observation is that the people of Lebanon 'love' these stand-offs, they keep bringing their rivals to the highest tensions, playing an all-or-nothing game - which sometimes ends with nothing, sometimes with Hezbollah fighting in the streets of Beirut.
* An Imminent Coup by Hezbollah in Lebanon (translated from Lebanon Observer)
* Hezbollah preparing to challenge Lebanon authorities (ya Libnan)
* Hezbollah plotting a coup?(upi)
I've called it before: Garbagestan.
Will the military stand by watching as they did last time Hezbollah stormed the streets of Beirut? Will the international community act if they see the 'pro-western' leaders murdered or exiled?
