People's Revolt in Lebanon

I just read a very interesting article on electronic intifada, People's Revolt in Lebanon by Mohamad Bazzi, that had originally been published in the Nation.
I recommend it. It explains a bit what Hizbullah wants and why it has gained power. It also highlights Lebanon's $36 billion dollar debt and the glamorous yet impractical projects that Hariri undertook.
