No breakthrough in Lebanon's party talks

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Rival politicians failed to bridge their differences Thursday in talks aimed at breaking a political stalemate that threatens to return Lebanon to violence, but delegates agreed to meet again for over the weekend.
Well good to know they are trying hard, they're even working on weekends.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has threatened to bring down the government of Prime Minister Fuad Saniora unless his group and its allies receive a third of the seats in the 24-member Cabinet — effectively gaining veto power.
Okay if this happens, we should just bid Lebanon farewell!
