Push comes to shove

The future of the "moderate" governments in the Middle East now depends on what is happening in Lebanon. If the Opposition succeed in overthrowing the government this will mark the turning of the tide in favour of the Iranian/Syrian alliance against an axis including Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, centering on Israel. I've missed Nasrallah's speeches of the last few days unfortunately and it appears that big things are now afoot.
