There are too many sects and sectarian divisions in Lebanon to hang one's survival on some constant allies. Alliances keep changing all the time. As an example: Walid Jumblat, today's leader of the Druze, had his father assassinated by Syria (as commonly believed) early in the civil war. After the war, when Syria became a permanent presence, Jumblat supported Hafez Assad. After the latter's death, Jumblatt became a proponent of getting Syria out of Lebanon. I don't know where he is today when Syria is actually out. There are other such stories. Hariri should to be left to follow realpolitik of the Lebanese type. His father was apparently killed by Hizballah, but they are the strongest faction. So what do you do? Change your alliances and try to maintain your rule. Survival of the fittest depends on the particular circumstances of every country. The un-sharp from another country should not force advice on the Lebanese. Let them survive as they see fit.
