Futile charge!


In WW1 large armies used to dig up trenches confronting each others, and spend countless days waiting and hiding in their holes, firing a few shots now and then. Meanwhile the tension rose and rose, until it became unbearable. Then the “great” generals would order a charge and thousands upon thousands will surge as one from their trenches… and get mowed down by countless machine guns.

I always wondered why these general ordered such useless and futile charges, and why didn’t they even try to find an alternate tactic, to achieve their objective.

Yesterday, Nassrallah and his allies, decided to launch a new series of demonstrations that will target several Ministries and could reach public facilities. And I think that today’s “generals” –referring to all the heads of the opposition, not only Aoun- should be asked the same questions: why continue this futile escalation, why order a new “charge”, knowing that it will not achieve anything, except maybe an economic meltdown, or in a worst case scenario, civil war.

As the evidence mount I am starting to believe that Hezbollah is set on destroying the economy, or at least it is using the economic issue to blackmail March 14, into submission.

However, today’s demonstration has been a startling failure, only a couple of hundred showed up. I think the opposition is losing steam. People no longer believe that demonstrations and protests can achieve anything positive. On the contrary, they are starting to feel their negative effects.

In all cases, we will have a clearer picture in the upcoming days, as the oppositions will further intensify its actions. But I believe that the last holidays lull and the failure of this demonstration is providing us with the perfect opportunity for a breakthrough in political negotiations. And I will go even further in saying that this could be our last chance to find a political compromise before the situation gets totally out of hand…

Yeah I think they ran out of tricks. The weird thing is that the opposition is acting as if it has nothing to lose. They're not concerned about the socioeconomic situation of the country and the heavy losses they are burdening the country with. Maybe they will succeed in taking control of the country if they continue like that but they will find only ruins of a country.
Honestly I think that the opposition is trying to get out of this mud it dragged itself into, but in dignity. I hope it realizes this fact before it's too late.

This is obvious from day ONE.Anyway the wealth is on the side of March 14.Both the Hezb and Aoun believe in a
Syrian or Iranian approach to the economy with hungry masses easy to control.

They are stuck! As simple as that! You see bob, the opposition has put itself in the corner. They simply can't ask the people to end up the demonstration and go back home without achieving anything, and they can't just keep people in the tents longer than that, so what to do? Increase the tension hoping that the internal security forces or the army would make a move that the opposition could use to intensify its position.

Another scenario would be that HA is more than happy with the situation as it is. Because things are about to fall apart, and when that happens, HA will have the upper hand; endless-funds, huge arsenal and supporters in the streets ready to take over! Crazy scenario, but it is possible.

However, I don't think the opposition is going to get anything out of this. Because the Government had faced a huge pressure and yet it seem to be functioning and far-away from collapsing. So if I have to bet on which side would surrender first, I'd say it's the opposition; as long as NO HUGE TURN OF EVENTS TAKES PLACE (God knows what would happen then)

yes it's a bad taste. We all know that orange goes better with blue or even yellow. It's more stylish.
