    Some lebanese, such as Nasrallah, needs the support from Syrian (and Iran). Hence, they support Assad. Other lebanese are anti-Assad (and anti-Iran), but they are fully aware that a breakdown of the regime in Damascus could bring war and chaos to Lebanon. To this we would have to add the implications of the findings of the Hariri-tribunal. Ordinary syrians certainly deserve freedom and democracy. But the destructive nature of Assad could set this part of the region (Syria, Lebanon and northern Israel) on fire. This tension will increase during september-october.
