Beirut Exchange Break

We are in the middle of the Beirut Exchange now (www.thebeirutexchange.com). Suffice it to say that our meetings with Hizbullah reinforce my view that all sides are girding for a major confrontation – indeed for a series of confrontations. Resistance Axis actors firmly believe the “plan” is to break down and divide Syria and further break down the middle east – and that the Saudis will not and do not want to stop fueling that overall, shared strategic vision. On top of that, Beirut feels more strange and emptied than I have ever seen it, especially during summer.
