Considering your Aoun can't get a clear sentence out without stuttering, I wouldn't say much FT. Maybe when M8 can buy teleprompters they ll be as convincing as Will Ferrell in the weatherman. :)

To kill a snake, the head must come off its body. In this case the head is asir!

My day of joy will be the day when the Lebanese army crash all these bearing arms in Lebanon and liberate dahyeh from nasrallah, saida from assir and tripoli from eid and every single inch of our Lebanese sacred soil! and it will be the day when the army set the rules on outlaws and not the other way around! Today the army needs permission from the Hizb or some other shmuck to bring criminals for justice and most often the demand is refuted!
