At last, they will not get away with murder.

A sad thought

Considering the fight our army is in against the enemy, isn't it sad that we have well trained, well armed Lebanese fighters in the south who are not currently part of their own country's legitimate army. How glorious it would have been if they were here, with the rest of our soldiers, protecting the country from the psychotic militants and their bombs, serving their own country fully instead only on one front. One need not point out that we have more than the one enemy in this world. Those men need to join the fight for the whole of Lebanon by serving in their country's army, not in a private army of their own.

God help the civilians caught in the middle of this fight between good and evil.

To our soldiers who died, may you rest in peace, we will forever be grateful.

I picked up this book "A HISTORY OF MODERN LEBANON" by Fawwaz Traboulsi, on a recommendation from MFL who promised it was a good and non-biased read.

He's quite right, it was a very good read, though I respectfully disagree with MFL since I did feel that the book was a little biased (leftist tinged) -I have never seen the word capitalist used so many times in a history book!

Anyway, all in all I highly recommend it. I've read a lot of politico/historical books on Lebanon and I would say this rates highly among them. Since it covers a big span of time, there is less on the civil war than I expected. The saddest thing is that the same names crop up again and again whether it is from 200 hundred years ago or 20 years ago. It is apparent that we as a people, have been rather un-imaginative, when it comes to picking those elected to "serve" us.
