As’ad AbuKhalil, aka the Angry Arab, translates the news that America will sell Lebanon light attack aircraft into the language of real politick. Over the top, as always, but there is a clearly a kernel of truth there.

The US will not give Lebanon any weapons that can be effective against Israeli aggression, but is willing to give Lebanon weapons that can be effective against demonstrators, rebels and the Palestinian refugee camps.
