Lebanon Government Falls
To add to the tense atmosphere in the Middle East, Hezbollah and its allies have pulled out of the coalition government that has been running Lebanon for the past 14 months. The primary cause seems to be the Rafik Hariri assasination report which points an accusing finger at Hezbollah and Syria. And the walk out happened as Hariri's son Saad was meeting with President Obama. The Hezbollah ministers make pious sounding noises over why they pulled out, but its all about them running Lebanon and not the Lebanese people. Expect things like attacks on northren Israel to ramp up plus other mischief.
