Lebanese premier designate on verge of quitting

Citing a Kuwaiti newspaper report, Lebanese blog Ya Libnan reports that premier designate Najib Mikati is on the verge of quitting due to his inability to form a government.
Hezbollah is reportedly creating obstacles for Mikati for insisting on including in the cabinet Faisal Karami , son of former PM Omar Karami as the representative of the Sunnis.

Hezbollah is also reportedly hiding behind MP Michel Aoun’s renewed demand for the ministry of Interior even though it was agreed earlier in March that the interior ministry will go to the centrist bloc of President Suleiman, Mikati and MP Walid Jumblatt.

President Suleiman is reportedly fully aware of Aoun’s intentions and for this reason he will not allow Aoun to control the ministry of interior under any circumstances. After all, one analyst told Ya Libnan last month : “Awarding the ministry of interior to Aoun will put the whole internal security of Lebanon under Hezbollah’s direct control. Such a situation will be extremely dangerous for Lebanon and will turn Lebanon into another Gaza or Somalia .”
Does Hezbullah have an interest in anarchy? Perhaps. It makes it much easier to take the country to war if Iran and Syria tell them to do that.

What could go wrong?

Hezbollah can't even get its puppet into office!

It must be causing sleepless nights for Nasrallah.

Faster, faster, faster now.
