Saudi Arabia gives up on Lebanon

According to this Al Jazeera article, Saudi Arabia will no longer endeavor to solve the problems plaguing Lebanon.  The Kingdom had been working with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.  The countries stepping in to fill the diplomatic void are Turkey and Qatar.

The article also includes some colorful quotes from Iranian President Mahmood Ahmadinejad, addressing the United States and other Western interlopers:

“You are on a rough downhill path that will take you into a deep valley and your actions show that your decline is on a fast track,” Ahmadinejad told a cheering crowd in the city of Yazd in a speech broadcast live on state television.

“With these actions, you are damaging your reputation. Stop your interference. If you don’t stop your sedition [in Lebanon], then the Lebanese nation and regional countries will cut your nasty, plotting hand.”
