Lebanon in crisis.

An anti-Syrian and anti-Hezbullah Lebanese cabinet minister was assassinated, shot at point blank range in his car.

This comes just two days after Hezbullah leader Nasrallah called for his followers to prepare to bring down the government through protest. "We cannot have any confidence in this government because it answers to the decisions and wishes of the American administration," he said.

This is not good.

Later: Just to add fuel to the Hezbullah fire,
A team of United Nations investigators has concluded that Israel engaged in “a significant pattern of excessive, indiscriminate and disproportionate force” against Lebanese civilians that amounted to “a flagrant violation” of international law during its war against Hezbollah last summer.

  • This is an attempt to provoke a conflict. It is full of meaning.

  • Oh yeah. The only question to me is whether it's a warning or the beginning.

    Oh, and nice job Israel. You made Nasrallah a hero.
