On the Lebanon Boarder


Here is a post by Michael J. Totten. He relates an account of being on the Lebanon Israeli boarder where tensions have been increasing.

It reminds me of being in Panmujon Korea, a shared piece of real estate, where North Korean and American guards walk the same turf. There was always an uneasy tension, and an uncertainty.

Calm could turn to danger at any moment. North Korean guards with their AK 47s had a look in their eyes that were more armed than their guns. American guards chosen by their height towered over their opposites.

One wrong step, one wrong action and the calm could turn into an explosion. And had many times before.
