Biden threatens Lebanon

Remember a few years back the Palestinians of Israel had a democratic election Hamas rose to power ousting the American backed PLO? And do you remember our governments response was to stop funding the official government and start fomenting a civil war? Well Vice President Biden basically just made the same kind of threat to Lebanon, who is set to have a democratic presidential election on June 7th. 

The AP is reporting that Biden in a speach warned that all future United States government funding to Lebanon would depend upon the upcoming elections. Could we expect a civil war in lebanon if the rebels win?
