The Lebanonisation of Iraq

Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki meets with senior Lebanese politician Saad al-Hariri. Each endorsed the other's criticism of outside interference in their national affairs while sitting in governments in which Iranian-backed militias play powerful roles. Apparently, for the second day in a row, the road to a new Middle East runs through (or possibly over) Beirut.
