Scientollah

Yesterday, the "Loyal Officers" decided to carry out secret maneuvers across Teegeeack, to pre-empt a pre-emption by the evil Xenu and his "renegades". They are sure that all their valley hopping will bring the fear of Sauron into the evil Zionist Galactic empire.

O Yee of Little Faith...

It is a wonder few people believe this... Heck, It makes more sense than the strength of Hezbo's "expansion" in northern areas. Or even more sense than Nasrallah’s secret maneuvers, that no one has seen or heard. In a country such as Lebanon, where the rumour is a unique example of a perpetual motion machine; the only confirmation is that "nothing on the ground really happened"… Dungeons and Dragons, anyone?

But the key question is not why people believe him; as P.T. Barnum once pointed out, there is a “believer” born every minute indeed.

The key question(s) are;
Do Nasrallah and his masters believe their own rhetoric? Do they really see those “paper stromstruppen” of theirs can still change the course of events?

Or are they merely improving a bad hand on the eve of a key election? In that case, with all the roars and threats, are "return trips" are possible?

For the answer, do not waste time watching diplomatic dances, but watch the streets of Beirut over the next couple of weeks…
And watch out overhead; the mighty are falling hard...

Nas & co. don't need to believe their own rhetoric; they are simply instructing their subjects how to think to avoid becoming targets of Hezbollah's "anti-Zionist" campaign.

jeha, This is my first time here at your blog. I didn't find to much information on your history. I have been to Beirut many many time, but it was many years ago. I stayed at the phonecia and St George hotels when I came through. Much has changed. When I was there the City was mostly Christian. Palestinians were everywhere, allowed in by the government. they had camps on the outskirts of town. It was an open tariff free city and as you stated it was all business. No trouble anywhere. The politics today is a far cry from then. Does the American University still exist there? I also read something about a US base possibly being built somewhere in Lebanon and a threat from Hezbo saying not no but H-ll no..... I ramble....stay well.....
