New lessons in the Mideast

David Howell: When they see what is happening in Lebanon, Western policymakers may at last begin to grasp what should have been obvious from the onset of the information and electronic revolution over 20 years ago -- namely and simply that the microchip disperses power into more and more hands (good and bad) and smaller and smaller groups, and that where the microchip leaves off, nanotechnology -- packing power into invisibly small entities and sources -- will take over. Sheer weight of arms no longer translates into power and influence.
