  • It is interesting how we can erect a barier and then blame a party for the extra time it takes to overcome it. Had the regional powers not convinced Sa’ad Hariri of the need for a so called :national unity government” then a cabinet would have been formed in 48 hours. These regional powers should blame themselves for interfering into the domestic affairs of their weaker neighbours and the Lebanese are to be blamed for allowing these countries to do so.
