What About All the Bad News?

Not to get unduly resentment-oriented, but unless I’m crazy the American media is really downplaying the deteriorating situation in Lebanon relative to the huge play they gave to big street protests during the “Cedar Revolution.” I’m not really all that certain that events in Lebanon are all that crucially important to the United States of America, but certainly when anti-Syrian and somewhat pro-Western forces appeared to be on the rise this was treated as a major development. Insofar as that’s the case, then surely the reverse turn of events as pro-Syrian mass movements flex their muscle is also important. This situation also at least appears to have the potential to turn into massive bloodshed at some point, so it’s kind of worth keeping track of.
