Hezbollah needs to be disarmed....

There's unfinished business in Lebanon...
A key member of Lebanon’s fragile coalition has pulled out of the latest round of national dialogue talks scheduled for this week because of one issue that remains off the table: Hizbollah’s continued presence as the most powerful armed force in the country.

The leader of the Lebanese Forces – the militia group founded during Lebanon’s 1975-91 civil war and subsequently reinvented as a political party – Samir Geagea, will not attend Thursday’s talks, part of a dialogue which began in 2008 as an effort to dampen sectarian tensions in the fractious nation, because the president Michel Suleiman has already announced that Hizbollah’s weapons will not be on the agenda.
