Two Sites For Lebanon Updates

I'll be putting the blogging aside for the most part today, but fortunately two bloggers will stay on top of developments in Lebanon. First, make sure to keep watching Michael Totten. He's spent enough time in the Middle East to have a clear perspective on events there, especially in Lebanon. If you missed Hugh's show yesterday, be sure to catch the podcast of at least the first hour, as Totten delivered important context for understanding the political currents in Lebanon.

The other blog to watch is Rick Moran's Right Wing Nuthouse. He's committed to keeping up on developments today, including the funeral of Pierre Gemayel, which has drawn hundreds of thousands of protestors. The speakers have demanded Hassan Nasrallah acknowledge that Hezbollah does not represent the majority of Lebanese, a direct challenge to Nasrallah's open bid for power. The Cabinet of Fuad Siniora have now holed themselves up in a government building in an attempt to keep any more ministers from resigning. Rick has lots more and links to other sites covering the crisis.
