Meant to cross-link this a while back, but forgot: Jon A., friend and gifted Oberlin politics alum, makes a heroic effort to make sense of a conflict that doesn't make any sense. It's the most intelligent, well-informed commentary I've read on this issue so far, and it's from a source I personally trust. He's in Syria right now, so he's relatively close to everything that's happening.

by all means, I'm quite curious to hear your conclusions.

Hey, glad you found it useful, and I'm flattered anyone would call me such things as gifted.

But please edit my last name out of this post. I have an extremely uncommon last name. Aside from being easy to trace back to me (and for professional reasons, I don't want my name in any way linked to my El Jay in case someone googles me), it's a very country-specific name.

Hi Kevin,

I loved all the pictures of "con chin tsai" on the Google link you gave on your homecooked meal post!

For further Lebanon backstory, the Alex Cockburn excerpt at FAIR site was okay. http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=2928

Good luck with your programming!
