About this product
- DescriptionOnce again, Leban stands on the precipice of an all-out civil war. A pro-Syrian faction consisting of Hizballah, Amal and Christians allied with Michel Aoun has been locked in a stalemate since December 2006 with the 'March 14' alliance supporting the pro-Western government of Fouad Siniora over the composition of a tribunal to try suspects in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri and the formation of a national unity government. This crisis comes on the heels of the summer 2006 war between Hizballah and Israel, which resulted in the deaths of 1,100 Lebanese and an ecomic loss estimated at $12 billion. Combined with a stagnant Arab-Israeli peace process and the war in Iraq, the situation in Leban is contributing to the overall instability in the Middle East. There are three possible outcomes to the crisis in Leban. The first is a continuation of political stasis, leading to a gradual decline in Leban's ability to recover from the summer war and make the necessary reforms to become an effective, sovereign state. The second is a fracturing of society along sectarian lines with a resumption of civil war. This scenario would have dire consequences for the region and leave Leban as a failed state. The third potential future for Leban, arguably the most difficult to achieve, is a stable country ruled by a competent and equitable government that maintains sovereignty over all of Leban and realizes the hopes embodied in the Cedar Revolution of 2005.
