Bi-Polar Lebanon and Burying Lebanon in WTO

It is interesting, the clash between 14th March and 8th March is allowing the Current PM Minister Mr. Seniora to get away with integrating Lebanon within the World Trade Organization, while the "lefties" on both sides are just barking on each other who is the real left.
I would expect Democratic Leftist Movement to at least start re-analyzing its alliance with the Future Block, but alas they think that the WTO will bring cash to the country. Some lefties...

Some references on dangers of the WTO, WB, and IMF are as follows:

Globalize This! ~ Various Authors
Globalization and its Terror ~ Terreza Brennan
Global Revolt ~ Amory Starr
Anti-Capitalism ~ Various Authors

Marxist From Lebanon

PS: When I have time I will start tackling those issues as well

If it will make everyone feel better, there is no real left in Lebanon.

anarchist revolution is coming, does this real left you refer to exist anywhere in the world?

I might not be an Anarchist, rather to the classic school of marxism, but I do have contacts with activists who stick to their principles 100%, afterall, even Lenin when he focused on the "Commanding Heights" against the smaller bourgeoisie had a huge opposition on the principle. The logic is you have your goals, if you do not focus on your goals, you are bargaining. Politics is an economical game with who manipulates the media, sticking to your principles is gaining one little step closer (and the little step is important mind you) for nothing comes on a golden plate.

Even though I am not Pro-Anarchism, I respect those who stick to their principles. To what school you belong Thaer?

Thaer Daem seems to me Trotskyst (Permenant Revolution I presume?) :) Cheers Comrades (suddenly I understood his name :)

Thaer daem, in some cases it does exist elsewhere, in most cases it sadly does not.
