The Realists are Now in Charge

Jim Baker, Robert Gates, and the realist school of real geo-politic are back in power. They are going to bring order and stability into the world by making deals with who ever will make them. Weak democracies (such as Lebanon and Iraq need not apply). Democracies out of favor (Israel) can fend for themselves.

We are seeing the first fruits of that policy.

Either a civil war in Lebanon or Syrian control of Lebanon.

I wonder if Lebanon is the price for "peace" in Iraq?

Who ever said it was the 1930s all over again, didn't know the half of it.
