Iraq the Movie — To Be Filmed in Beirut?

I don't know if there will be another civil war in Lebanon. Maybe there will be and maybe there won't be. Predicting Middle Eastern politics and events is a fool's game. I've learned that the hard way and will try not to forget it.

Lebanese people are a lot more pessimistic than I am. Maybe it's because I'm still naive, and maybe it's because they still suffer from collective Post Traumatic Stress Disorder only made worse by the most recent round between Hezbollah and the IDF.

They do know how to take conflict in stride, though. Blogger Josey Wales (yes, he's Lebanese despite the name and the cowboy hat) draws parallels between Lebanon and Iraq. And it's funny. (They have one pitch-black sense of humor in that country.)
