Nasrallah v Nasrallah

What a hot May it is shaping up to be.

Or maybe not...

As in our past civil war, our non-repentant warlords are committing moult obfuscation, blustering, kidnappings, killings, and other joyeusetés, as if they were paving the way for the next 1975.

However, I remain unconvinced. The background noise that you hear is not the sound of hoofs; the horsemen of the coming apocalypse. It is far too loud. More likely, it is the squeal of matamores were making up for powerlessness with empty bluster.

Yes, Rome couve son feu, but Nero has not started his fiddle yet. So, while we’ve edged closer to the abyss. While we’ve survived 1973, we’re still stuck pre-1975…

From Nahr-El-Bared to Nahr-El-Mot

Just like last summer, Lebanon is being threatened with “Red Lines”. Only now the scene is muddied, and the message more subtle; the Iranian overlords are over-extending a useful franchise, so they can only move auxiliary pawns around in Lebanon.

And the reason for all this squealing; maybe it's Nasrallah (Sfeir)’s visit to the White House. Having faced the Syrians in solitude, Nasrallah (Sfeir) finds himself in the role of the unlikely challenger to Nasrallah (a.k.a. Divine Victory).

On the face of it, this is would be an unequal match-up. In addition to some unwelcome “allies”, Nasrallah (Sfeir) has neither the skills nor the manpower to face Nasrallah (a.k.a. Gentil Organisateur). On the other hand, Nasrallah (a.k.a. Final Victory) has a useful ally in Der General Aoun, who snipes at “his own” from the inside.

Yes, Nasrallah (Sfeir) doesn’t have much, but neither did the Pope. And that gets Syria and Iran edgy…

That’s odd…

Unless they fear Monday’s for real
