Maybe it's good for people to leave the country. In a couple generations they'll forget their factional loyalties and return simply as Lebanese.

This may well be the crux of the matter; to March 14, the battle's main objective is not limited to trying to defeat Aoun, but rather to show the limits of his current support. A bonus would be to consolidate the wedge between him and Murr.

As long as Murr backs him, Aoun is assured of victory in Metn. Even then, the win should be close; depending on turnout, Aoun's victory margin should fall between 51% and 60% margin.

It will be interesting to see if Murr's nationalized Syrians will come in and vote this time round.

If they do, I would love to see how Aoun can spin that; the support of the PSNS is one thing, but outright Syrian support is another.

...overreachings and counter-overreaching can be fun to watch, as long as you're not in the train heading for the wreck.

Darwin Awards, all round!

J,
The few people I talk to in Lebanon and even the Lebanese press and obviously the Aounist web site do not seem to differentiate between the support for Aounists and the potential votes against March 14.
An electoral win for the Aoun candidate in the Metn( which is very highly unlikely) were it to happen will be the result of a wide coalition of Ba'athists, PSPers, Tashnaks and Al Mursupporters. Such a victory must not be interpreted as support for Aoun since the only thing in common by all these diverse groups is their loyalty to a Syrian master.
If you are in Lebanon and if you have access to the Metn area I wonder whether you can comment on the above.

If you think about it, Lebanon's history has been nothing but a series of overreachings and counter-overreaching.

The problem is cultural as much as political. giving away instant power for long-term growth seems very un-lebanese.

Maybe once the politics of persuasion and accountability take over the politics of leader-knows-best, perhaps, just perhaps, things could get better..
