    Paying in $ for an apartment still under construction

    He planned it brilliantly. By agreeing for a smaller appartment, thus reducing the price nearly 30k, and the contractor agreeing on those terms if the buyer provides 20k in cheque which he can get for 8k USD Cash, he managed himself quite a salvaged deal. It's a matter of how much you can...

    October 17 Revolution

    I agree Downtown must be upscale, representing the best Lebanon has to offer, but the Burj is as much part of Beirut as Dt should be. Ironically, you are showing Sehet l Nejme during New Year, the other is same pic but during normal days (empty) and the last one is Zaytouna Bay. Beirut should...

    October 17 Revolution

    Yeah what kind of sh!thole sehet l burj was. Looks worse than Souk l Ahad. Thank God it is now an upscaling and prosperous buisness hub. Amiright?

    October 17 Revolution

    Sehet l Burj is a desolate parking, instead of being the once proud sou2 cha3be and bazar involving jewelry and many merchants. During his tenure he stopped national production in favor of importing cheaper products. Also, Sanioura was his finance minister. Or do we neglect that Sanfoura looted...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    Entertain me with your opinion. Suppose I found a party on a noble cause, in order to protect the north with weapons, get funded mainly by a foreign country, suppress any sign of party/sect dissension, hold a monopoly in the elections, allocate funds obtained from within and without to party...

    October 17 Revolution

    Thugs from Khanda2 destroy beirut (or Hariri thugs). Thugs close the streets in Jal l Deeb. And now thugs close the streets in Jieh. Government response slow (Whether Hariri government or this one) in order to offer time for these thugs serving the political agenda of their masters to escape...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    It's a shame and a disgrace that Hariri covers for Sanioura (out of necessity because that scum was his father's minister of finance), but what is worse is that other parties don't bother to revive the topic, letting it slowly die in our collective consciousness... As you said, instead of being...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    I hate to point things out, and correct me if I'm wrong, but why do FPM always vote for Berri as speaker, even if their abstention would be symbolic? I'm not gonna even talk about the Ministry of Energy fiasco, rather just the recent appointment of a Governor for Keserwen and Jbeil. How the...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    I score quite high on those. I treat your local CEO as I would treat the garbageman, i.e like decent human beings first and foremost, without prejudice. I do my fair share of community service and don't expect it to be reciprocated by others. But what I do expect is the politican/MP/Leader...

    Why the Loss and Debt numbers are conflicting between different sides.

    The negligence you talk about exists in many forms. First and foremost, you have the Government Commissioner at BDL. He supervises everything there (think of him as the trusted liason of the Government). Second, you have the ministry of Finance, to which said Commissioner answers to. Finally...

    Typical of Sanioura to talk about patriotism and Lebanon, right after having looted it. Hayda bedo Chane2 men Baydato!

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    You approve of his policies. You advocate him being Speaker countlessly, you never acknowledge his corruption nor his cronies. Are these not the actions of a sectarian follower, or dare I say, a fanboy? Your words speak of your stances and formed the labeling itself. You either say he is corrupt...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    First of all, I have no political leader nor does anyone represent me. All parties are responsible for this chaos and ineptitude, from FPM to Berri, HA, LF, Hariri, Jumbi, etc. and you can add Assad too. If anything, my posts show that I am independent and neutral with regards to all parties...

    Why the Loss and Debt numbers are conflicting between different sides.

    I forgot to add that a solution was that the big depositors and those who profited enormously from the exorbitant interest rates provided by BDL/the State through the Ponzi scheme be relinquished, at least some of them. That way, depositors wouldn't be touched in any way, only using the interest...

    Why the Loss and Debt numbers are conflicting between different sides.

    Dr. Henri Chaoul, the expert consultant in the Lebanese delegation with the IMF, resigned a couple of days ago, citing unwillingness from the political parties to enact reforms contingent upon the IMF loan. He also indicated the lack of incentive from many MPs because they own stakes and assets...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    Yes an LBC report showed that Sri Lanka defaulted on an $8 billion chinese loan/debt, thereby granting Beijing, as compensation, the BOT of the most important port or harbour of Sri Lanka... for 99 years. I guess we would be trading our old Western and current Iranian masters for a Chinese...

    Hassan Diab Government [IMF Negotiations Officially Underway]

    @Rafidi has this habit of sounding like a reasonable human until he gets cornered with topics about Berri and his tendrils of corruption, at which point he just blames the Maronites and lauds the Baltaji for being strong, independant and a caretaker of the Ma7roumin, not knowing/willfully...

    October 17 Revolution

    If the status quo continues, then we truly are headed towards an apocalypse, our glorious leaders spending and draining what little cash/reserves the State and BDL has in order to prolong the inevitable ending of the Ponzi Scheme we live in. I just hope, sincerely, that someone will be held...

    October 17 Revolution

    Sadly nothing. As long as Berri remains Head of Parliament, any law bringing reform shall be struck down. And even should he trip and die agonizingly, Jumbi, Hariri, Sanfoura, Mikati, Bassil and co. will not muster up the necessary majority to approve such a law. By logic and reason, no party...

    Can't blame a rat for having the full support of Berri and FPM.
