In the past couple of weeks, we’ve all had front-row seats to the Lebanese government being bitch-slapped around and caving in, its tail between its legs.
Security forces apprehend a terror suspect, thugs threaten to plunge the North of Lebanon into chaos, not only do they release Moulawi for just 500,000 LBP… The prime minister goes up to personally welcome him. Wow, how unimaginable humiliating. Yalla, bukra when someday the security forces apprehend me, go terrorize people and threaten with civil war and have me released. Looks like a pretty efficient way to get people out of trouble!
Next, when the Lebanese Army killed the two sheikhs. I personally think that there was definitely a reason for the scuffle. I understand some of my readers will be mad because they respect religious men or are supporters of these sheikhs political beliefs, but honestly, the injured army personnel as well as the two missing cars from the initial motorcade, are too suspicious for me to assume it was an assassination and that the army should be expelled.
But, yet again, the government was humiliated beyond comprehension when the army pulled its soldiers from the region and even detained almost two dozen of them without even charging them with anything or concluding the investigations. Heck, some rabid dogs elected as MPs even called for executing army soldiers, when those very soldiers are probably from his town or the neighboring one. What’s funnier though, is how 8 March suddenly worship the army, the same Hezbollah that said Nahr el Bared was “a red line” and the same Hezbollah who shot down an army helicopter, killing a soldier and didn’t even bother apologizing.
So, super face-palm at these past couple of weeks. We’ve seen the army and security forces and even the prime minister and president utterly humiliated for everyone to see.
Now, it looks like the employees of EDL are following in the footsteps of the thugs and terror suspects of the past two weeks. Yesterday, the broke down the gates and occupied the EDL headquarters in Beirut. All that after a pussy tried to light himself on fire and fainted, or fainted after inhaling large amounts of burning tire, or whatever other thing that caused him to look incredibly stupid and IQless. Educated? Qualified? Really? Would you burn yourself for a crummy job some crummy politician promised you? No, you wouldn’t.
Gebran Bassil is a corrupt minister. He also whines a lot and does nothing productive we can see or feel. The disappointment in him is even greater though, because Aoun practically took a child-like temper-tantrum-style “joojoo or no one” stance to get the failure in the elections to be a minister. That, plus the FPM’s “change and reform” slogan, which has crumbled on top of their heads and made them even more accountable that the already-well-kn0wn-to-be-corrupt March 14 hypocrites.
This time though, we need Joojoo to stand by his position. Let him fire the whole bunch. People need to understand that breaking and burning and terrorizing and ruining people’s days and lives is not a viable means to get what you want. They might have had a legitimate cause, but the EDL workers forfeited all of their questionable rights yesterday. Let us hire new people, and if the old ones create problems, lock them up and let the judges decide what happens to them.
The problem in this farm of a country is that no one is ever held accountable. You do bad, you serve the time or punishment. Security should never need political coverage. We don’t need to strike deals with a Saudi King or terror leader in Tripoli to keep the country safe. If a thug is bad, let him serve the time, regardless of whether or not his fellow sectsmen threaten with violence and killing. Oh, and btw, was Shady Moulawi worth all the people who died for the sake of his release? The answer is definitely no. So, put aside your hate for Bassil and stand behind his stance (which he will hopefully maintain) like my dear friend Mustapha has
