Reader comment on item: Lebanon's Liberation Approaches

Submitted by Marcos Berenstein (Brazil), Feb 25, 2005 at 07:58

Does anyone know if Syria actually has an embassy at Beirut? I'm afraid it hasn't. Why? Because Syria simply doesn't recognize Lebanon as a free, sovereign entity.Who's to blame? BRITAIN & FRANCE.As we all know, today's Middle-East's map was drawn at London and Paris,ignoring that Arabs' notion of statehood is somewhat different than their former masters.
There you have weird countries such as JORDAN,a ficticious country created by Whitehall's chaps in order to reward a friendly King,Abdullah,carving out in a despicable manner Palestine,a territory promised by Mr.Balfour to the Zionist Organization.The Brits didn't live up to their falsely-earned fame of being an honored people,for they've lied to us.
Mr.Assad,an intelligent chap,educated in Britain,knows that he longer can manipulate Lebanon's political spectrum to achieve his agenda,that is,to prevent the advent of true democracy in Lebanon,in order to stay indefinitely there,by the guise of "protecting its interests",all of this under complete acceptance of the Arab League. Mr.Assad's witnessed France and USA working together to sink
Syria's Generals dream of the Greater Syria,even if Israel itself de facto was already a formidable obstacle in that path. Now, Lebanon's chances of becoming a democratic, free country are better than ever. If Lebanon happens to get rid of Syrian clutches, Damascus's regime will weaken, for Syrian opposition,both from inside and abroad,will demand power change and possibly a bloody coup-d├ętat will occur,for Mr.Assad will not be able to perpetrate another HAMA-like massacre,when his daddy ordered an all-out massacre in 1982 against the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ,that previously had lobbed a hand grenade at his motorcade.Almost 15,000 people were killed in Hama,an event grossly ignored by the world media,that was ONLY interested on Sabra and Shatilla massacres,that had considerably less casualties than the latter.
