    It amazes me that non of the clever and erudite remarks that have been made on this subject mentions the simple fact that Saad Hariri is using his position as PM, and disbursing Lebanese tax-payers' money, to pursue a personal vendetta. In any normal democracy this would be called conflict of interest, and the international tribunal disqualifies itself by tolerating this. Thought I would mention it. Another point: Not only the Lebanese don't want civil war, but also a cabinet of the same hue as the current one, but lacking Mr. Hariri's disruptive presence, may actually function tolerably well and provide the Lebanese with the things they badly need, such as hydro and good roads. No one has given thought to the fact the Saad Hariri is an intolerably evil person whose intellectual gifts hover somewhere below those of George Bush and Sarah Palin. Thank you Mr. Obama for putting your weight behind such an insignificant person. Perhaps I should start praying that Sarah Palin will be the next president of the US.
