    I've been reading a lot of analysis as to how Lebanon was lost once more. There are people blaming the FPM, Hezbollah, Syria/Iran, Israel, the setup of Lebanese politics, the US, Biden and Clinton, etc. Most people think it was a combination of factors.

    Any opinions on this site? Hopefully the Opposition can win Lebanon in four years -- even though they lost this one, I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel as the Alliance begins to lose support.

    I listed about ten probable causes. Biden can't turn the entire vote around.

    but I bet you're thinking "the US is responsible".

    They're one of the factors, yes. Not in any way the only one.
