THERE IS NO LEBANON:
Hezbollah vows end to Lebanon government (SAM F. GHATTAS, 12/08/06, Associated Press)
Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah promised thousands of supporters Thursday that they would eventually bring down Lebanon's Western-backed government, but the prime minister vowed to stand firm against protesters. [...]
Hezbollah has gained increasing political clout after the war, which began after Hezbollah guerrillas snatched two Israeli soldiers patrolling the south Lebanon border. It wants to topple Saniora's government because it has rejected demands for forming a national unity government that would give the pro-Hezbollah factions veto power in the Cabinet.
Lebanon would be best served by disunification instead. Posted by Orrin Judd at December 9, 2006 10:00 AM
