Devil and Details...

Given that the Syrians are behind Nahr El-Bared, and everything else in Lebanon short of Global Warming…

Why has Elias Murr claimed victory prematurely?

Why has Suleiman absolved them of this?

Why is Hariri so apparently complacent about Jund El-Sham?

...

Given that Nahr El-Bared is not the only fortified camp, and may even be the smaller…

Why haven’t the Syrians exploited the Palestinian predicament and “activated” them?

Given that those who claim March 14th are the real nationalists…

Why are they being so kind on Khaddam?

I do not really expect answers to those questions; I would rather we did not have to raise them in the first place. The fact is, all “sides” force us to raise far more questions than they can provide answers for. Each sings his own meaningless old song

Lebanese politics is less confusing when you realise that the underlying patter never changes…

A furore vanitas libera nos, Domine

The ability to think critically and to analyze events objectively have always been the hallmark of serious thinking . Yet it is crucially important for the sake of moral clarity to make a clear distinction between mistakes committed as a result of inexperience and maybe even incompetence and those that have resulted from purposely acting against the common good by promoting the interests of foreign entities. The former errors can be corrected but the latter are deadly and fatal. That is why I cannot equate the clueless pols of March 14 with the leadership of the "opposition" that appears to be interested only in promoting the national intersts of Syria/Iran.
