No Peace Without Syria

I have written a number of articles from Beirut lately that are held up in editing limbo. But my most recent was published right away at Tech Central Station because it’s time-sensitive.

Like I mentioned recently on the blog, I did manage to get all the way to the Lebanese/Israeli border when my family wasn’t traveling with me. And, as you know, last week it exploded in the worst round of violence since Israel’s withdrawal in the year 2000. This article is about the recent bout of conflict and the bizarre Hezbollah-controlled border region in general. The title is the second half of an old Middle East saying: No War Without Egypt. No Peace Without Syria.

Tomorrow I will post photos.
