Who has the majority? who won the most parliamentary seats in the national elections? Who participated in the elections in the regions they thought they could win, and boycotted and protested the other regions as unbalanced?
Who decided that the perfect time to demonstrate and thank Syria (for what, again?) was at the moment when the eyes of the world were on the winds of change that were sweeping through Lebanon, the moment when the Lebanese united and screamed a loud and resounding "NO!" to tutelage and terror?
Let's put it this way. These protests are wrong for the simple reason that there is no reason to protest. Being the opposition is not reason enough for mass protests. Not having the power to bring down the government constitutionally is not a reason either.
It's being a sore loser, that's all.
I will not address Hizbullah. I think you are terrorists. Theocrazies, led by a rabid Irani lapdog who couldn't care less for his country. A guy who, since he's a cleric, can't be touched, but who wants to play at politics. No, I won't address you.
I will not address Aoun either. A megalomaniac has-been who thinks he's god's gift to freedom. He burned his political credit by showing his true colors, to my own personal chagrin. He lost my respect by refusing to say that he made a mistake choosing his allies. He made me regret every tear I shed for him when I was younger. A has-been, and a hack. No, not worth talking to.
Berri, nah. Frangieh? Foul-mouthed, inbred, illiterate opportunist? Nope. Well, at least these guys stayed their course, I'll give them that.
I want to talk to you. The Lebanese.
Let's make it clear, honest, and cut the politically-correct crap. I want to talk to the Aounees. The Christians that make this political standoff what it is. Without you, this would be a country united against a crazed organization. Without you, this would be a democracy being reborn, and rooting out the last bastion of lawlessness.
Please, look around you. Look around you campsite. Who do you see? Do you see Gebran Toueni, who bled his pen, week after week, defending your beloved commander-in-exile? Do you see your fellow Lebanese who were beaten during protests, thrown in Jails and sent to Syria? Do you see the students from every other political party who were also abused in those protests? Is MTV filming you? Is the station that was SHUT DOWN because of it's unwavering support on your side anymore? No. No. No. You are alone. You are swimming against the current (lol). You are standing side by side with the criminals that brought war to the country this summer. The criminals who gave the Syrian tutelage legitimacy. The criminals who would burn the country if their masters told them to.
And why? Because your master told you to? Because he wants a piece of the pie?
Do you hear his language? He speaks of imperialism and Zionism. He speaks of the French, the American, the European and the 'Zionist' tentacles spread into the core of our country.
That guy lived in FRANCE for over a decade! He claimed that his efforts in the US was what led the UN to announce the UNSC 1559 resolution! Why is he now against this? What other reason could there be? The pie. It's all about the pie!
Blink. Your eyes must be watering.
You see your jailer there, next to you, don't you? You see everyone who ever insulted you, huh? You see the people who supported the same dictator that you fought against.
Please open your eyes.
