One Worry

What worries me most is that tomorrow we wake up and pray: "it is over", but it doesn't. I know it won't be 17 years of war, but my parents for everyday then lived the horrors, and every day they woke up prating that it will be over.

The US ruling class, is divided on Iran.

When the CIA released the report debunking Iran's weapon capability, it was to sabotage war plans.

This is like Bush's last stand.

My worry is that you, MFL, become swept up by all the anti-Hezballah propaganda.

There will NOT be an Islamic state in Lebanon, and this is NOT the key feature of Hezballah as an organisation. Hezballah, at it's heart, is an anti-imperialist and anti-colonialist party. Thus it MUST be supported against the neo-liberal FMers.

All the internal bullshit and the tangles of the horrible leaders is hiding the broader picture, that March 14 are neo-liberal pricks and have privatised and destroyed the lives of the Lebanese.

At the same time, I agree with a few leftist lebanese bloggers who state the need for an independent left in lebanon that does more than simply stand on the side and cheerlead for Hezballah.

As far as I can tell, all the recent actions have been about taking power away from the neo-liberal FM, and I welcome this wholeheartedly.

I think if the ultimate value is to prevent human suffering, then i support whoever supports that and from what I have read of MFL's writing, that is the value he stands by... not either sides propaganda.

(Sorry, it's not my business but I felt compelled to say that.)

you cant justify everything, like the SWP logic, as Anti-US Imperialism. The only legitimate ones are the leftists, when you see how the militants are wondering around my house, tell me that this is resistance.

I am neverswept by the anti-Hezbollah, I am an anti-Hezbollah from the beginning. The only thing that makes me appear to look supporting Hezbollah is when I explain to the stupid zionists and certain US audience that there is a big difference between Hezbollah and al-Qa'eda. If there is any respect to Hezbollah (liberation of the sacred South in 2000) went down the grain because they aimed their missiles on the civilians in Mt. Lebanon (unlike Beirut which was a quick and swift opeation).

What Ayla said is true.. and if you heard Hajj's speech yesterday, you know why I oppose Hezbollah as a sectarian movement and of course I do not support anyone. Let me be clear for the last time: HEZBOLLAH ARE NOT THE ZAPATISTAS.
