Lebanon sure is caught between a rock & a hard place.
i really think that the US neocons, PNACers, BushReich are setting
the pace & goals of this flare up of combat by Israel.
somewhere in the deep secrets bin of the BushReich,
there must be a strategic model that believes that the Shiite
Hezbollah just may have (a few) caches of WMDs from Iraq
that Saddam intended to retreive sometime.
As the expected Israeli insertion into Hezbollah controlled
southern Lebanon caves & bunkers to rout out the militants
gains momentum, wouldn't it be a real bonanza for a WMD
cache to be reported found & exposed...giving the Israel
US partnership a soapbox to declare to the world
'I Told You So!'
#2, the PNAC plan for the middle east & near east
is to 'balkanize' all the present maps/nations into
smaller, manageable, tribal groups & controllable factions.
in that vein, Lebanon woud be divided into a democratic
parlimentary state, 2 or more religious oriented states
(think Shiite & Sunni as a starting point)
other than those 2 shadowy, unprovable, ulterior motives
for taking action against Lebanon. I would say that policy
& strategy & plans are quickly forged in haste as events
transpire...any Hezbollah action or response to Israeli
force is presented as an 'escallation' by the media spinmeisters.
On top of the troubles there on the Israeli-Lebanon frontier,
there is being created another crisis on Cyprus as
thousands of Lebanons' refugees having American ID
are being temporarily resettled on Cyprus...itself a country
Ah ha, another area where an American solution can be administered
to the US advantage in more ways than one. such as; will there
be a presence of Marines to protect the american refugees.
