It's Not All About the U.S.

Some people insist on viewing the conflict between Syria and Lebanon strictly through the prism of U.S. foreign policy in the region. I understand why it’s tempting to do this if you’re an American who doesn’t like U.S. policy. That goes double if you’re a Syrian Baathist.
My friend and anonymous blogger Lebanon.Profile over at the Lebanese Political Journal isn’t happy about it.
UPDATE: See also Tony Badran at Across the Bay for more on the same problem.
