    Iran\Syria will continue to flood Lebanon with cash whether there are protests or not. Western doners who get scared away by the protests will give up Western influence and hand Hezb/Iran/Syria another victory. They will hand the credit for rebuilding Lebanon to Iran and Syria by withholding funds. The protest organizers will NOT stop the protests if they are threatened with a reduction in Western donations. Reductions in Western donations only helps them show that only Hezb. will bring Lebanon the cash to rebuild. Tactical Advantage: Hezbollah, Iran, and Syria. All that they need to do to cement their roll as rebuilders is to give out a few more handful's of cash after the western doner's conference is declaired a flop. This is all the direct result of Israel choosing to bomb expensive civilian infastructure instead of using ground troops to hunt and kill individual terrorists. The battle tactic of using bombs to hunt individual humans in populated areas failed.
