A kind of Iraq

[ #23492 ]
Dear Log,

«[Syria's] ultimate trump is, perhaps, to withdraw. For if they did that, an intelligence chief once explained, Lebanon would become a hotbed of assorted militants, Islamic and Palestinian, in effect a kind of Iraq. And the Americans and Israelis would soon come begging them to return.»

--"The shadow of another Iraq "

When in doubt, repeat the Spanish-American war.
