About the Defensive strategy: "Shay in Marji'yoon"

The Marji'yoon incident raised very serious questions concerning the defensive strategy the government will follow in the near future. This case was and still a bit mysterious since there are opposite reports on what happened.

Adnan Daood stated the following (in arabic).

Fatfat said what means that after investigations, Daood didn't make a big mistake. I wonder here what's a big and what is a small mistake. Yet, I tend to believe Daood because of the reports that have been made from people of marji'yoon about his history, things said by the people voluntarily.

This is a very serious problem. But the way it went in politics a bit strange. After the parliament spokesmen gathered in an attempt to revise the investigations and take a certain decision, they were going to send the file to alqada2 el3askareh. However, and in a silly- repeated-Lebanese-scenario, the majority representatives left the gathering suddenly before voting in order to avoid sending the file and to delay the whole issue to another gathering.

It will be claimed of course that this is turning into an internal political gap from which the other camp will attempt to go through, but really why are they fearing elqada2 el3askary? If Fatfat and others related to this case haven't done anything wrong, so why they fear it?

This is a major incident that will considered an example for how the government should lead such military issues and how the military decision must be taken.Do we defend our self using phone diplomacy? ( Fatfat stated that the Americans guaranteed that the israeli forces won't enter the building)

Is this the way we will follow to deal with future incidents? : Obey the occupier's rules and wait for the usual delayed international help? (Daood ordered to collect all the weapons before the surrendering by 24 hours, thus no intention of resistance).

What about the army members that were in the building? Should its strategy be saving its members' souls and thus waving the white flag instead of defending their place?

Considering that the army men had no orders in that case, this will return us to the major issue: how must the military decision be taken under such circumstances? Will it be different in the near future because of the political support of army deployment, a thing that was not found in Marji'yoon incident?
