I LOVE LIFE: Michael Totten reports from the top floor of Lebanon's civil society. Excerpt:

Most Lebanese think the American and Israeli “realists” who want to negotiate with the Syrians are painfully naïve at best, and downright sinister at worst. There’s an old saying about the Damascus regime in Beirut: Assad starts the fire, sells the water, and never delivers. And Lebanese will never forget that Secretary of State James Baker green-lighted Syrian domination of Lebanon for completely unneeded “help” in ousting Saddam Hussein from Kuwait.

Like Bill Roggio, Bill Ardolino, Michael Yon, and the other independent bloggers, he relies on donations, so if you like his (or their) work, be sure to remember to make one.
