Hezbollah's Delusion and the Shia's Dire Straits

_By Tony Badran (cross posted at “Across the Bay”:http://beirut2bayside.blogspot.com/2008/05/hezbollahs-delusion-and-shias-dire.html)_
Two excellent items in NOW Lebanon:
One, a superb piece by Michael Young on the repercussions of Hezbollah’s mad, and failed, coup attempt on the Lebanese Shi’a. It’s really a must read (and you can see echoes in Abu Kais’ moving post yesterday).
Two, a sharp editorial on Hezbollah’s weapons and its dead-end options within a unitary state. Again, it’s worth reading in full.
