Rob, on Michael Totten:

What a wonderful thing that Lebanon was not intimidated by Hezbola assassins and bombs.
That kind of courage is what it will take to turn back the tide of terrorism.
This election shows that free Lebanon deserves our continuing support.

Lebanon is another place, somewhat like Afghanistan, where problems generated in their neighboring countries are pushed inside and form a toxic brew.

Obama appears to have done the right thing here, although his soft soft talk to Iran can embolden them to create another war with Israel and fight it in Lebanon.

Thanks to Michael Totten for the clear report. Other news from this area reads more like an echo of Hezbollah propaganda than real news.
