They weren’t shot dead – they committed suicide

January 28th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Eight people – supporters of opposition parties Amal and Hizbollah – have been killed by the Lebanese Army. They were protesting against the power cuts.

March 14 says: “The opposition … is solely responsible for the blood spilled today.”

By that logic, March 14 is responsible for the deaths of their martyrs.

    Don’t rush into conclusions. The situation is more nuanced than that.

    I read your post earlier today. You have an interesting take on it – and I was going to link to you, but I just wanted to keep this post simple.

    I agree, the guilty parties in Lebanon are rarely the ones holding the gun. But by that logic, Syria is more than likely not behind the assassinations over the past three years.

    Also, I disagree with you that the opposition has avoided violence at all costs. Last January, a similar number of people died in violence.

    I’m not sure I understand your conclusion. Hizbollah may have shot its own supporters? No, the Army did. Anything else is a wishful conspiracy theory.
