An agreement has been reached between the Lebanese government and Hezbollah in Doha which effectively gives Hezbollah a veto. They have been given 11 of 30 cabinet ministers. Government decisions can only be made with the approval with two thirds of the cabinet. Sure, Michael Suleiman will become President but Hezbollah will exercise real power in Lebanon. Which means Iran is running the show. Terrorism has been rewarded and so long as it is they have no incentive to change their behavior.
