Abu Kais, writing on his blog From Beirut to the Beltway, explains how Hizbullah is leading Lebanon into civil war just because the government does not want to give in to its demands.
But time is running out for Hizbullah and Aoun. The resentment towards them and their supporters is reaching dangerous levels. There have been many spontaneous protests in several Lebanese cities, and it is clear that there are people who will not sit and watch the militia and its Christian cover besieging their government and paralyzing the country.
Unless they plan on a military coup, I don’t see how they will succeed in toppling the government, which is enjoying the support of parliament, not to mention most of the world. If they don’t end their occupation of downtown Beirut soon, civil war will come knocking.
It should come as no surprise that Iran and Syria would rather have Lebanon as their own controllable satellite-state than its own entity. Hizbullah is merely doing their job for them. How sad.
