How To Feel?

I have been contemplating on the whole assassination issue and the future of Lebanon...well, I've been trying to contemplate and understand everything. I wish I can really explain the way I feel but it just won't come out right.

It is sad that Hariri was assassinated.

It is sad that innocent victims were killed in the explosion.

It is sad that in the past 30 years there has been 20 somewhat assassinations in Lebanon and until now, no one knows who assassinated them. What does that tell people? You can kill any political figure you like and we will never catch you?

It is sad that a country that came out of 15 years of civil war, spent 15 years being rebuilt and becoming secure, was shaken in 15 miliseconds, by an explosion that killed the great man who spent 15 years rebuilding and rebringing security to Lebanon.

It is sad for a young lady to see her fiance burning alive, getting out of the car, falling to the ground... his eyes showing his will to live and survive.... yet he does not. It is sad how a person's life can be easily changed in second and how a person's life can just disappear in a second.... so easily, barbarically, and cheap.

It's just all so sad...

Friends, stand strong, America is watching, and will help if you stand and be counted for your freedom.

It is sad indeed!
If the Lebanese people don't stick together, neither French nor Americans, nor every other country on the list, will be able to help.

Why do you guys count on others to help!

Why don't we help ourselves???

Believe me when I say this, Lebanon should not want America's help. Look at Iraq.

So, amen to what both Eve and Rampurple just said.

Over a century ago, British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli proclaimed that nations had no permanent enemies or allies — only permanent interests.

Lebanese should have no delusions about why other governments are showing concern. But we also should not squander any influence that could help us succeed, as long as it is offered freely with NO concessions on our part.

Whether we like it or not, our part of the world is now - and has always been - the battlefield of world powers.

انا من زمان قطعت مرحلة الحزن
انا صرت بمرحلة اليأس
والعبث مش البعث
بس يمكن هالمظاهرات شوي غيرت تفكيري

وراح حرف من اليأس
