I rarely agree with Beirut Spring. But I find his commentary to be some of the most clear headed of the M14 fans (although he may deny being an M14 fan, so apologies in advance).
Anyway, read this, and understand Michel Aoun’s ability to morph from anti-Syrian to pro-Syrian:
To understand, one has to look way back at the years where Aoun took the popular position of resisting the Syrians. We all thought back then that he was doing it because it was the right thing to do, but many of us are learning today that he did it because Syria was the only thing standing between him and power.
I’ve never been a fan of Aoun – need proof: this should do.
So there. That’s an interesting take on how Aoun made a massive u-turn. But what about Junblatt. What’s his explanation? Hmm, this sounds reasonable.
