Hard to figure out what's going on in Lebanon. But I do know one thing: Hezbollah is not engaging in 'civil disobedience.'
... Whether Hezbollah withdraws or not, I like Armchair Gen. Brigher Center's theory, as explained to me yesterday. 'It's a dress rehearsal,' he said of Iran-backed Hezbollah's challenge to the government in Lebanon. 'They want to know how far they can go. They may not win this time. But they'll be back.' ... He added that Iran is pressing on all fronts in the Middle East, perhaps in preparation for a showdown over its nuke plans or over the Straights of Harmuz. Don't know about that. But I do know one other thing: Iran is not on the defensive (see 'Bush has a two-header now' below). ... Michael Totten
has more. ...
