What is happening in Lebanon is not strange since we're passing through
a period of transition. We threw off the regime of tutelage and occupation
which had deprived the state of the power of decision. The passage into
era of sovereignty has not taken place in a normal fashion because of the
pro-Syrian factions, which became bolder after several months of lethargy.
The opposition, which enjoys the support of these factions, does not
any democratic formula since it demands a blocking third in the cabinet,
something that doesn't exist in any democracy. I don't share the view
of those who are looking for a solution to the crisis based on the
principle of "no victor, no vanquished". It's an unsound logic.
This slogan of "no victor, no vanquished" is a stupid slogan meant to patch
up what should have been thrown away. It is Lebanese way to save face and
push the dirt under the rug only to face it again in the future. The
reality is that the pro-Syrian forces are a minority and as a minority they
should not be even in teh government. Having a minority in the government
paralyzes it or dilutes it power. It is okay to have Hizballaha nd Berri
outside the government and enough garbage about power sharing and
coexistence. They are outside by choice and due to their political agendas.
But, I also know that the stupid president Lahoud and Hizballah will keep on
saying that the government does not represent all the Lebanese. It does and
the people that are outside are the minority that has a losing agenda.
