Part 1 of 2 (character limit)
But let's say some lessons in overlooking the recent flounders of someone I had put my fate in would be more appropriate since I minored in politics :wink: -
I've dwelt enough on the WJ subject in the PSP MoU thread and the Aziz article sums up the past reliance of FPM on the bells' issue. Yes concessions are to be made in any deal but not at the expense of principles. (Detainees, bells, etc.)
[...] True, it's good to see that remaining villages will be dealt with. You can however read my post about the displaced http://forum.tayyar.org/f8/gmas-visit-chouf-20-02-2010-discussion-42378/index30.html#post1077684 and see that the problem's rotten roots cannot be mended as the financial and moral damage has already been done to the majority of villages.
Anyway, since I see them all in the same boat now, I'm happy if you're happy - GMA is a good man but the sands of time are running low for him with no suitable succession and as George Bernard Shaw said: "Political necessities sometime turn out to be political mistakes."
