What difference does it make? We need Hezbollah to disappear...
US & France are pushing Nawaf Salam for PM, he is very anti-hezbollah.

It's being very much overlooked but one of Trump's most significant accomplishments is bringing Lebanon to it's knees with enforcement of economic sanctions. More than 80% of the country is eating less for lack of money. I've been saying this before the explosion but it's getting more and more obvious.

It appears Israel stands to gain with either outcome; if Hezbollah takes power, Israel has a sovereign as an adversary instead of an elusive movement hiding in tunnels under schools and hospitals. If Hezbollah doesn't take power, the new government is likely to be less supportive of Hezbollah. It's not out of the question to see a new govt request foreign help (France?) in disarming Hezbollah.
