Lebanon is careening toward civil war again, this time between muslim factions, Iranian backed Hezbollah and a Syrian backed militia called Al-Abash. Street fighting is taking place as Syria attempts to regain control of Lebanon, taken over by Iran and Hezbollah a few years ago. But there is more at stake here than Lebanon. Syria is showing it is back in the game, and is the Sunni regional power that all other Sunni states in the region can rally around as Iran flexes its muscles. With the Obama administration committed to surrender, the region is trembling, waiting for the match to light the fuse. The seeds of war have been sown, and will very soon be reaped.
In Lebanon street battles rage
As Hezbollah exits the stage
And Syria resumes control
And Sunni gangs now do patrol
The very streets the Shiites thought
Were theirs and so they were distraught
To find themselves again at war
With Sunnis who would like the score
To be reversed to favor them
But who will rule that little gem?
The seeds of war are sprouting fast
The wakeful know the die is cast
