The U.S. and Lebanon

Yesterday I linked to a post at the Lebanese Political Journal that briefly mentioned how U.S. foreign policy intersected with the Cedar Revolution. Today the lead writer at the site, who uses the psuedonym Lebanon.Profile, wrote a longer essay that focuses specifically on this very question.
Read it. Read the whole thing. Whether you’re politically left, right, dovish, or hawkish, I can almost guarantee you’ll be surprised by at least part of what he has to say. Things look different in Lebanon than they do in America. But don’t take my word for it. Get it straight from the source.
