    Nobody suggests the dismantling of Lebanon- that would be up to the Lebanese (and they've been doing a fine job of dismantling their own country for decades already). We simply suggest that Syria have its security and economic rights protected there and not challenged by Israel. Syria would still have to abide by the norms of international behavior, and Lebanon would continue its national existence. In return, Syria should stop allowing Hezbollah and Hamas to receive arms and material support through Syria and Lebanon. Since Lebanon itself is incapable of performing this security function for itself (leaving an enemy army, Hezbollah the proxy of Iran, at our border), and Israel has no desire to occupy Lebanon, there is nobody else to do this anyway except Syria. To refuse to acknowledge the reality of the situation, rather than to work to have Syria behave and de-fang our own enemies in the process in tandem with the Arab states who would also agree is unrealistic and short-sighted.
