The lebanese form a new government..

and Hizbollah gets only one seat in the cabinet. While this will freak some people out, i would like to assure them that this is actually a good thing compared to what could've happend: Hizbollah got the Ministery of Energy, while they really wanted the defence ministry and the foreign affairs ministry. Compared to the clusterfuck that giving them either one of those posts would've caused ( can u imagine whose foreign policy that person would advocate?) the ministry of energy is not such a bad thing, and actually a pretty impressive political achievment by the new prime minister. Go lebanon!

Yeah, not as good as nothing, but not too bad. Not that Hizbollah knows squat about energy efficiency. (Scroll down for pix of Hez area of Beirut.)

Brian H, did you actually read that report you linked to and the comments from Lebanese people? If you did you would know why Hizbola areas look like you suggested ;)
