Fallout from Lebanon bombing

According to Lebanon's Daily Star various Islamic groups have already blamed the zionists for killing Hariri. According to CNN the information minister is all but rewriting Hariri's stance on the Lebanon-Syria relationship, and well, mostly kissing up to Syria. Most people are still blaming the Syrians for what happened.

As it turns out, on February 7, Hariri came out and said that Lebanon should make a deal with Israel for peace, following Jordan and Egypt.

Outwardly the politicians are calling for calm, but it is hard to know what will happen. The people want blood. The Army has all but declared martial law. This is not a good first step. It means people will be killed on the streets, and those will sounds like first shots.
