an intelligent lebanon would reward female skills

Why female skills are putting companies with women leaders ahead, in the US. Now how about in Lebanon?

rule of law: not a good fit with US allies

in Lebanon, US allies are reminiscent of the corrupt cops of 1930's San Fransisco.
They abuse power, hold back salaries of public employees, and hopelessly try to provoke sectarianism as a smoke screen.

Obama's government supported banana republics, until it no longer had a choice

January 27, 2011, Biden still supported Moubarak and State Dept spokesman Crowley said Moubarak "stabilizes" the region.

In May 19, 2011 Obama says in his Arabic Spring speech that this is "a time when the people of the Middle East and North Africa are casting off the burdens of the past". So, was the US holding us back in the past, during all the years it supported Banana Republics?

so when afghanistan does it it's ok

"Hezbollah, pro-Iran" is what the US shreeks at Lebanese that are not Saudi puppets. It's lost on them that we can be pro-Lebanon. Then again, assuming Lebanon was accepting aid from Iran, how is it that this makes pro-Iranians, but not so when Afghanistan accepts the same aid to fend off extremists that happen to be opponents of Iran?

an ex-dictator deemed pro-democracy?!

It's classic American foreign policy to alternate their alliances with extremists, calling one a bad extremist and the other a good one. They have never however supported real democracy advocates :

In Syria they are re-branding an old dictator as "pro-democracy", to replace a current dictatorship.
