Hezbollah's Sheik Nasrallah is still angry with Lebanon.
This week he has taken that hostility and raised it a notch.
Last week the Lebanese army confiscated a cache of weapons belonging to Hezbollah and Nasrallah immediately demanded that his weapons be returned.
The weapons have still not been returned.
From the time the weapons were sized until today skirmishes have left 8 Lebanese dead.
Both the Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, a Sunni, and Nasrallah, a Shiite, have said that their red line is civil war.
Events on the ground show that they are out to defeat each other using intimidation and military threats and force - stopping just short of civil war.
This is a first.
This is the first time that the Lebanese government has taken a stand in order to take back Lebanon. For years Hezbollah and the Shiites have ruled Lebanon even though they are only 1/3 of the population, a vocal and violent minority.
The Lebanese need to be applauded for their actions and strength.
They need emotional support and backing.
Taking control of their own destiny is not in character for the Lebanese.
