a bad '80s flashback in lebanon

A politician called Gemayel assassinated in Lebanon, country slides closer to war, the Syrians are probably responsible. This isn't just 1980s Middle Eastern history, it's happening again this week. To quote the philosopher Yogi Berra, it's deja vu all over again.

Funny, a few months ago the Administration was taking extreme liberties by taking full credit for political developments in Lebanon. Nowadays, they don't seem so quick to point to what's happening in Lebanon as a positive outcome of the Iraq invasion (how's that going, by the way?).
