Political Adventurism

Prince Saud al-Faisal ; Saudi Arabia has "only [given up] with regards to the issue of mediation."

1; Life guard analogy; Hezbollahs going down and those who ally with them do so at their own peril.
2; Saudi Arabia is still interfering, they are just not mediating. They have picked sides and see no reason to speak to the other side.
2; Lebanese only hear what they want to hear; (This isn't going as planned. The Lebanese aren't reading the moves the way we would like.)
3; Location location location; Hassan Nasrallah is a puppet because he went to see the Iranian President,
 who had went to see him and the Lebanese people last year. CPM Hariri is a Sheik because Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques went to see him, CPM has since traveled to see many "Western" world leaders along with a visit to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in the US. The symbolism is clear! (to some!)
4; Jumblatt is as unreliable as the Saudi weather service (will it be be hot? or not? tough call?).
5; If this doesn’t go the "right" way there may be a war and that war will become a regional one (see Syria).
