Belmont Club on Lebanon

A new post at The Belmont Club cites this article at the Washington Post (and if Wretchard says it's worth reading, who am I to argue?) which provides a useful timeline of Lebanese/Israeli events from 1978 to the present. Belmont Club adds:
What is remarkable about this incident is that tensions in Lebanon were presumably on the wane -- until now. The Lebanese government, which has been trying to remove foreign influences, including Syria and Israel, from its national life, has limited control over Hezbollah. This new incident threatens to drag Lebanon back into the line of fire. But perhaps the point was precisely to do that. Turn Lebanon into a cauldron once again.
