Is no longer prevented from governing. The President's good friend and no friend of Hisbollah was the final resignation necessary to 'bring down the government.' Had the President of Lebanon not wanted the caretaker government to carry on without Hisbollah preventing it from doing anything his friend the Minister of State would have soldiered on preventing Hisbollah from toppling the government. Hisbollah wanted a constitutional crisis where it was indispensable. What it has is a government more functional than in months which may continue until the President has been presented a government capable of ruling. . . The music ended and much to it's surprise, Hisbollah is standing and everyone else is either sitting down or talking with the President for a new job. . . Hariri will remain the caretaker Prime Minister as the UN Special Tribunal releases it's findings. He no longer HAS the power to prevent it's acceptance by the Government of Lebanon for he is 'only' a caretaker. . . Hisbollah has jumped out the window only to discover it is dangling on a string in the breeze. Syria has already told them not to expect resupply if they start a civil war. Hisbollah has trapped itself while Aoun, Amal, and Jumblatt bide their time and speak of compromise.
