Do you even hear yourself talking? Have you not seen what those people you're defending did to this country? Did you hear about the explosion that happened a few days ago? Do you call this defending the country? Do you seriously think that blowing up half of the city amounts to defending the country? So this is your slogan? Chia Chia instead of Lebanon Lebanon?

This guy is out to create more divisions and hatred among the people.

Unfortunately commentators that do the same by accusing a single party of being corrupt are as bad as him. It seems that they have forgotten that it is a generations of corrupt rulers that have got the country where it is now. Theft, corruption, humiliation, slavery for over 40 year.

For those who try to ignite secretarial frictions on this site, shame on you. Your capital is burning and all you see is hatred? All the poor people are in the same boat. If you have not learned this already, then you deserve to be the slave of your current criminal rulers.

That is the best proposal so far. We need an early election. We need a new contract in Lebanon.

and seriously, without any BIG changes, the same shitheads will come back to office. Who doesn't believe the Jumblatt, Berri, Hariri and others won't reoccupy their old posts?

Why don’t you share your high spirited agenda Mr I am mature?
I’ll tell you some donkey and monkey are similar with a letter change I assume that you noticed it
So for the big issue over here let me tell you the unvarnished truth. We can’t share a country with religiously spirited organizations.
When secularity and science and meritocracy will prevail we might have the see for a country

I tired to decipher what you wrote but I think I understood.

We can always share a county, it’s happen before and it’s happening in some place around the world.You suggesting we partition the country ?

The reason it is not happening, is because we are always raised to follow our own religious/party no matter how bad or incompetent they are. Until that mentality changes (& looking from comments on here) it definitely has a looooong way to go.

Get some insights from the Swiss model. After all we were quoted as the Swiss of the Middle East
Mais on ne fera pas boire de l’eau à un âne qui n’ a pas soif.
We need babysitting until we are able to build allegiance to the 10452 without commuting to Teheran or Riyadh. After all we are smarter than all the imbeciles around us.
When you have metweles barking Shia ditto and warlords and drug lords running the country it’s difficult.
Moreover through history Lebanon was always more I tested in other great causes than his own
Unfortunately it has to get worse before it gets better.

We Lebanese people are very smart and can make Lebanon an amazing hub. Just need to out vote these warlords and educate a lot of the sheep we have.

It will come around Inshalla
