Ghassan Tueni's latest article

Should it always be bad news, is this awareness or fact or warning or just pessimism. Ghassan Tueni brought back the phantom of civil war to my mind, and when it's coming from someone like Ghassan Tueni, it leaves a trace. Suleiman Franjieh said some stuff, but who listens to that retarted nincompoop. On the other hand, Annahar's wisest's words are heavy to swallow. Talk about conspiracies and outside forces is just unbearable to me. I still can't say the word "C... c... c... ca... cannon" easily until now. I truly believe we are over and done in Lebanon with the lowest achievement man stooped down to: War. Didn't we all believe that. I just want to say it again, in these blurry times: I will never, under any circumstance, hold a f***ing gun or be part of war, any war. Will you guys do it at all! and if Yes, under which circumstances?

No more war under any circumstances. It is time for us to live in peace. We must be engaged in the anti-war process....
Peace

A war against war, if anything. We will not fall in the same trap again. Although the lebanese people seem divided in their political affiliation (which under normal circumstances is a good marker for democracy), they're united against the resurgence of violence. The key, like has been said a million times before, lies in our loyalty to the nation and its unity. If this is deeply rooted, as I hope to God it is, no external interference will be successful in dragging Lebanon into an internal armed conflict of any sort.

I go between hope and despair; between wanting to leave Lebanon immediately and wanting to stay and make it better.

Yesterday, I wanted to leave.

Today, I'm in the middle ground, but it is a hopeful middle ground.

I don't think there will be war.

No matter what, I'd rather die first then see my people engaged in another war.
I hope not.. Fingers crossed!

I feel that I need to add a few lines to my previous comment.

The success or failure of the efforts of each of the parties named by Ghassan Tueini is determined in the final analysis Not by these forein parties but by US the Lebanese citizens. They will succeed only when enough Lebanese are willing to do their dirty work. If the Lebanese refuse to participate in any and all of these schemes then each of these parties will be forced to pack up and go home.

I am not a fan of the blame game but over the years I have noticed a tendency amongst the Lebanese to blame all our problems on others. I think that is wrong. We are the problem and we can become the solution. It is all up to us.

I would NEVER fight against another Lebanese... no more civil war BUT I will be the first to pick up my gun and fight against a foreign army if it was in defense of lebanon!

If need be I will fight against foreigners. The sad part is, no matter how much we convince ourselves that a war will not take place, that it is unthinkable that the Lebanese would go around massacring one another, I am convinced that it can and will eventually happen again. The confessional system must be completely abolished, otherwise we will keep on having civil war after civil war until there is no Lebanon. I can't stress this enough; the confessional system has hindered the development of a healthy national identity; Supra-national identities are what determine each sub-culture's attitudes and behaviour, and indeed external allianes. Lebanon is being used by all parties in the region and outside the region. Ever wondered why USA / France won't press for meaningful SOCIAL changes as they do in Eastern European countries, in return for aid? I'm not saying that had they done so it would've proven their good intentions (there is always an element of self-interest in interference in others' affairs) but their not doing so in Lebanon's case proves that they have a vested interest in using Lebanon and its media for the establishment of a new regional order. Having a united, coherent front in Lebanon would greatly hinder its ability to do that...

:) the war... big question. Everyone will deny wanting to fight, but when the time comes, more than you expect will engage, take a weapon, and go out there kill somebody. An old friend? A piece of former family?

The country deserves all the blood we have in our veins, but the PEOPLE of Lebanon doesn't deserve shit. Even not a smal urine drop.

SO... my option is:: rawcheh, plouf, sea, crawl, Cyprus, then anything... No gun, No Malja2.
