On the upside, Saudi tourists seem to be fleeing the country.

A Palestinian friend suggested we draw up a list of "symbolic targets" for the IAF, should they feel the need to punish the "Lebanese government" for this "act of war". On that occasion, I am happy to declare that the "Lebanese government" is still the March 14th coalition, some of whose members have substantial assets that are eyesores in the Beirut landscape. There are a few luxury hotels in downtown on the Corniche that are not yet completed; personally, I wouldn't mind the bombastic mosque that Hariri built for the Saudis on the edge of Martyr Square to be taken out.

Just a thought. I would much prefer if the Israelis calmed down and didn't bomb anything, of course. What's wrong with negotiating for prisoner release? "We don't negotiate". Why is that considered cool?
