How Many Miles...

How many roads must Berri walk down

And still be worthy of the man?

Yes, 'n' how many “victories” must Nasrallah claim

Before they're forever banned?

Yes, 'n' how many seas must our people sail

Before they can come back to their home?

Our sister, my friend, is blowin' up the free,

Our country’s wastin' its best minds.

How many years must Geagea have spent

Before we can see past his past?

Yes, 'n' how many ears must Michel Aoun have

Before he can hear people cry?

Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till Joumblat

Sees that too many people were killed?

Our sister, my friend, is armin’ up the worst,

Our country’s wastin’ too much time.

How many dollars can the Hariris still waste

Before it's washed to the sea?

Yes, 'n' how many years can our people resist

Before they're allowed to be free?

Yes, 'n' how many times can the West turn their head,

Pretending they just do not see?

Their own smoke, my friend, is blowin' up their a#s,

Our nation’s nowhere to be found.

Jeha,
When would the nation be found? you ask. The answer is simple and straight forward, actually causality in this case is totally linear. A nation to exist needs to have citizens . Take the citizens away and the nation ceases to exist. When is this nation to be found? the answer my friend is blowing in the wind, when its citizens make an appearance.

to Sam:

Nesrallah didnt resist the syrian occupation!
Aoun didnt resist, he run away!

unfortunatly to you, only geagea did truely resist and spent 11 years in jail. war criminal or not... he is the only one who turned out to be a hero!

The answer, indeed, may be "blowing away" as more and more of us travel away.

For now, a few like us remain stubbornly attached to this Lebanese pipe dream. But we're a shrinking number...

Maybe such stubbornness is what keeps me deleting some uncouth individuals away. Maybe it is the same stubbornness that drove many of us to spill blood for Aoun, Geagea, Joumblat, or Nasrallah. Maybe this is what did Geagea in, way back when he though he was owed something...

Maybe...

But I am sure of one thing, I would not go as far as calling Geagea a "hero"... And I would not wish his ordeal on any other war criminal.
