Beirut lull...

Ignatius, in Beirut, in the WaPo, here
Mousawi sees the two-year siege of the prime minister's office in much the same terms Siniora does -- as a battle over Lebanon's identity. It ended in a compromise, and Mousawi seems to find that acceptable. His organization doesn't want to create a Hezbollah state, he insists. It just wants to block a pro-American one......."No one would have imagined the Americans would have let [Lebanon] go. But they are a superpower, and they said: 'Let it go,' "
