Reprisals threatened for Beirut bombing in resurgently violent Lebanon

The family of a man who was killed this week in the deadliest car bombing to hit Lebanon’s capital in decades said it would wait for orders from Hezbollah’s leadership before seeking revenge on Syrian rebels. In turn, Hezbollah’s top leader responded to the developments with an eye-for-an-eye speech that suggested more cross-border involvement in the bloodshed that’s overwhelmed Syria. It was a sign that Thursday’s attack threatens to return Lebanon to the violence that ripped it apart from the mid-1970s through the ’80s.
