Beirut Bureau Chief Brent Sadler posted an article about the ongoing fighting in Lebanon: Hezbollah-led forces take revolt to mountains above Beirut.

International reporter Hala Gorani & her producer "standing in part of the offices of Future television, the pro-government network torched by opposition supporters two days ago. There is still smoke curling from the debris."

Maybe we should stop funding the political ads and start sending our money to someplace where it will really do some good...
