Brief Dispatches from the New Lebanon War

by Michael J. Totten
Is there actually a new war in Lebanon? Maybe. That’s what it looks like if you “read the brief dispatches on my friend Charles Malik’s blog”:http://lebop.blogspot.com/. He is in Beirut now and hearing gunfire and rockets in his neighborhood. That used to be my neighborhood. Anyway, more war in Lebanon is inevitable as long as Hezbollah exists.
Another friend told me in an email today that Lebanon is actually in worse shape than it appears in the media. This is new. It is usually the other way around.
