A Lebanese woman speaks about her president ...

About: cedarseed: I can't believe I still have to explain


I can't believe I still have to explain away our "president"... I am SO pissed off at journalists who are interviewing him. The man is boycotted by government's like France, shouldn't that give them a clue about the bastard? Jesus Christ! I'm writing this post so that I never have to answer a "Is this your president??" comment again.

The man was not elected, he was imposed by Syria, and this is not something whispered among ourselves, it is a widely established fact. Syria violated our constitution to re-name him as head of state, and you may not know this, but it is this fact that caused the ripples that led to Hariri's assassination and the so-called Cedar Revolution. Can you guess what 2 million Lebanese demanded on March 14, apart from "Syria out"? That's right, Lahoud's resignation.
