More on Lebanon

Lebanon's outgoing Prime Minister Omar Karami, who recently resigned, is set to be reappointed as the Prime Minister. While on the surface, this looks like a setback to independence efforts in Lebanon, I see a positive out of this development. The reappointment of Omar Karami will keep the anti-Syrian groups motivated to keep up their demonstrations and pressure against the Syrians and the pro-Syrian Lebanon government. I also think today's developments shows these anti-Syrian groups that its going to take a long, dedicated fight to push the Syrian influence out.
