    If by Deniora you mean Siniora, then that’s not exactly what happened.
    If by Diniora you mean Other people from March14 who back Siniora then you are right.

    From the article youlink to, “Premier Fouad Saniora said [...] and the March 14 majority coalition blamed the crime on the Syrian regime, calling for sanctions on Damascus. ”

    Saniora always makes a point of never making such claims himself directly, this time was no exception.

    After all he wants to preserve his freedom to side with Syria once more.

    This is the Middle East. No one is loyal to any ideology or country, or anything other than cynical about anything other than family and perhaps religion.

    The Lebanese are turning on the Syrians today. They’ll be embracing them as brothers tomorrow.

    Modern,

    You’re not going to convince those who disagree with you if you start out by calling them evil or stupid. Fortunately, the Simpsons is a fabulous show, so HeiGou should take no offense at your comment. On the other hand, had you accused Hei of being an avid Survivor watcher, it might have been different.

    P.S. Doh!

    Hey, nothing wrong with the Simpsons. Well they aren’t as good as they used to be. I think they jumped the shark about the time Mrs Flanders died.

    Mideast expert? Well no. But I know a little about Lebanese history. Let’s see, Hezbollah is Syria’s main ally which is aligned to Michel Aoun who was driven out of Lebanon by Syria. His main Muslim opponents are the Sunnis, who have been consistently pro-Syria until about five years ago, and Walid Jumblatt who spent the whole Civil War fighting for Syria – despite the fact that they murdered his father. If you can point out to me what sort of consistent moral or ethical basis underlies these alliances I would be very appreciative.

    The fact is just as Jumblatt now condemns Syria despite having fought for them, he will eventually come to embrace them as brothers.

    Oh I don’t know. Survivor had its moments.

    Nice. Alas I don’t have a crystal ball, but at least I have a few facts. Which is why you lose so many arguments with me you are forced to engage in this sort of childish spite. Let me know when you grow up, OK sweetie?

    Heigou sweety, your facts are your “chosen” ones, but unfortunately not convenient for me, and as I don’t want to make “war”, that means for you “surrending” or “dhimming”, I don’t care
