BOWING TO DEMOCRACY:

Defeated by Iran, the Saudis wash their hands of Lebanon (AVI ISSACHAROFF, February 24, 2016, Times of Israel)

The bottom line seems to be that Saudi Arabia -- one of the most important allies of the former Lebanon, the moderate, modern, advanced Lebanon that for decades was controlled by a Christian Maronite-Sunni alliance -- has decided to pull away, to wash its hands.

It is giving up on its allies and leaving Lebanon in the control of Iran, Hezbollah and the new alliance that has taken shape there between various Christian Maronites (Michel Aoun and his men) and the Shiites, who today constitute the country's largest community.

Most of the WoT is about empowering the Shi'a at the expense of their oppressors.
