Junblatt calls for Civil War (updated)

February 10th, 2008 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

The nutcase shows his true colours:

“If you want chaos, we welcome chaos. If you want war, we welcome one.”

He was addressing Hizbollah, days before emotions are bound to run high on the third anniversary of the assassination of the martyr Sheikh Rafiq Al Hariri.

Later, two people were injured when a convoy of Junblatt supporters drove past a rival Druze party’s offices, called the Lebanese Democratic Party. The LDP has accused Junblatt “militia members” of opening fire on them.

    The whole situation reminds me very much of 1976.
    And while I agree very much that Junblatt is a nutcase, I think both sides are equally responsible for what is gonna happen, just like the National Forces and Kataeb were responsible for starting the civil war, with rhetorics very similar to these [if you want war, we can handle war], and [we are fighting for “social justice”]…

    I wasn’t alive in 76, so I can’t compare the atmosphere then to now. I just think it’s sad that these warlords still have so much respect. If you put your trust in warlords, you get war.

    Labanon is going to war , the problem is will Hezballah fall for the trap and push Lebanon toward a war or will he back off and accomidate the other party for the sake of Lebanon, that is what Jumblat KSA and Harriri are counting on that for the sake of Lebanon Hezballah will retreat.
