Watching and Watching

How many of you are bored from being accused a traitor by the other camp? Specially if you do not belong to any.

How many come and tell you "we are Lebanese", I thought the term love is relative, I am surprised that "We love Lebanon" is more relative, and most relative is life.

How many times we are fed up from work and prefer to have the day off, suddenly a faction tells you "going to work is loving life" while adding dignity means you are with the other. Someone told me "Having Sex means love of life henceforth viva 14th of March" (go figure that out)

How many of you out of noticed how your friends changed attitude because you refuted to become racist like them?

How many came to you and told you this is a battle of the Rich versus the poor? Or the Corrupt versus the Clean? Or Lovers of Freedom against the Agents (both ways in this case)?

No matter what you do, you are fed up from all those reactionary figures. No one is listening to the facts. Aoun for example, as I mentioned earlier, has put a distorted picture and tagged it Lebanese Forces shooting the demonstrators. In any society over the world, Aoun would be forced to lose credibility and retire politics, but no the other camp would reply: "His heart is in the right place".

How many times you hear Junblatt preaching Freedom but demands any nation of the world to invade the Syrians (except Israel). Some lover of freedom...

How many times you hear Berri despising Feldman and US imperialism, but decides to have lunch with him....

How many times have you seen someone telling you: "They are both disgusting, but I am with this camp because it is the lesser evil among the two..."

The Police discover links, directly they put judgement. An important investigation ended up lost between the chaos of 14th of March and the Opposition. Nothing is credible anymore...

No Parliament has not met because its chair considers the government non-constitutonal but decides to meet with the boss of the Prime Minister, Harriri Jr.

I have not seen so many bullshits for the past four months like I have seen now.

Oh yeah, can someone explain to me how Bashir Gemayel (the right-wing and invitee of the Israelis to invade Lebanon to secure his presidential chair) and Kamal Junblatt (the ally of the PLO - left wing) both wanted in the long run 14th of March? Or because Satchi and Satchi say so...?

Wear the names they call you as badges of pride to show you are not one of them. It just may be that someone else will see those badges and decide they would like to wear them too.

The Police discover links
Or maybe plant them where unavailable? :D

The police = the police: everywhere!

This time around, there will be no Syria to stop the war... Only Saudi Arabia, US, Israel and Iran.

I would sooner trust the Devil than one of the above mentioned. Who do you trust?

MFL, I think you have just overdosed on Lebanese politics. I suggest you turn off the news and relieve your brain for a couple of days. Don't worry, the same old crap will still be there waiting when you come back.

Puppeteer, I read the war in details, sadly, the Syrians had a role in igniting the war back in 1975...

lalabenessa, you sure remind me of someone, i have a hunch we met before

I think you have a correct analysis, and like Trotsky, years ahead of your comrades thinking.

On Sunday there will be a big march against the war in Iraq here in Minnesota. I will be there with the editor of "In Defense of Marxism".

Your writing is really good.

Take joy from small victories.

MFL, I don't think we've met before, only in "cyberspace".
