Is there a difference between doing a foreigner's bidding and trying to do what you want with the assistance of a foreigner?
If there is a difference, which one is more eggregious? And, can we really determine who is doing what in Lebanon? Or is everybody doing both?
Finaly, are there foreign interventions that are more benign or malevolent than others? Can we make an argument that one power's intervention is more desirable than another? If so, how do we do so in the current climate that Lebanese are living in?
I ask these questions because, for me at least, the choices I have to make with regards to Lebanon zero around the regional and international powers. I find myself asking the question of: which powers would I prefer for Lebanon to be under the influence of?
I look forward to reading some of your answers.
