LEBANON UPDATE (PICTURES, LINK TO VIDEO BELOW)

Appreciate your thoughts, Rick. It seemed to me that inherent in the Liberal Oasis analysis was the assumption that Hizbollah was armed largely as a consequence of Israeli violence- ignoring the reality that Hiz is armed as a function of its own ideology and power, irrespective of Israel's action.

Rick, I've been surfing lib sites to see if there's any discussion re: Lebanon. Very little, as one might expect. However, I did read Liberal Oasis, who unsurprisingly blames BushCo for Lebanon's ailments. LO references US failure in the Rome Conference, and argues:

"The Israeli occupation of Shebaa Farms has been used by Hezbollah as a pretext for continued "resistance.
If Siniora could resolve the dispute, and deliver a tangible success for his country, his coalition government would be strengthened and Hezbollah would lose justification for remaining armed."

I know precious little about Shebaa Farms and its relevance, if any, to the current crisis in Lebanon. Could you enlighten us?
