Because...Berri.
It's not just Berri.

It's all of them just talking and doing nothing.

Everything Bassil said in his statement is empty talk, using the same cliché words that everyone is using :
"تحديد الخسائر"
, "استعادة الثقة",
"اقتصاد حرّ"

Bassil and FPM cheered about the plan that the government made! they didn't complain, they fully supported it with all their medias and deputies
Same thing for the budget.

So now Bassil can't complain and act as if he's an outsider from the government, it's a government where he has a majority, if Berri is blocking something I'm not hearing any FPM deputy complaining about it.

i can easily explain things to you. but i would rather just say, shut up.

this is more befitting of this interaction.

The entire "moderate Arab" camp or rather the Zionist arab camp are delusional. This delusion was exhibited by their boss, Pompeo himself in his yesterday's press conference. He spoke of helping Lebanon if Hezbollah's control of the Lebanese govt is removed.

I really dont understand how can a foreign secretary of a supposedly democratic country can make such a remark. Hezballah got the highest number of votes in the 2018 parliamentary election. Hezballah's presence in govt and in parliament and in the state and in the country is a decision for the Lebanese people. Hezballah represents a major segment of the Lebanese population. And sidelining or marginalizing Hezballah, which represents a major sect singlehandedly would mean no govt can stand in Lebanon. This is how the system works. You cant tell us we have to undo democratic election results before you can give us economic support. In that case, we do not want your economic support. And since you are making it obvious that our present ordeal is a political orchestration, it would only be a matter of time before we ask your ambassador to leave Lebanon and for you to shut down your embassy. We will not tolerate your blackmail. You can't be telling us to the face that you are starving us and you expect us to tolerate your ambassador going on Lebanese tv to lecture the country on problems you are orchestrating. Why not leave us alone, then? We will find solutions which you dont want to give us.

And after all this, do not think Hezballah will get any less votes if there is an election today. They will even get more votes because we will not accept a foreign coup against our sect as Shia and against our country as Lebanese. When Trump was impeached, even though he was more or less guilty, he was acquitted because you didnt want to undo his election, as disgusting to many Americans as Trump has been. So the likes of the Gmayyel kids who are calling for early election, should know that Hezballah and its allies will win again and again. And even if the allies of Hezballah dont win, Hezballah will continue to be the sole representative of the entire Shia sect and its word will stand. And if you cant work with those who represent us, then you are looking for trouble for yourselves, which will happily be delivered to you and you wont have a place in this country. If you try to undo us by conniving with foreign powers, it would be obligatory upon us to take the initiative and be the ones to undo instead. This foreign orchestration wont succeed. It is an economic war and it would be our duty as Lebanese not to yield or surrender to such a war that is meant to make us kneel. We wont kneel. We will open our @$$ to China and get all the economic aide and investments and we wont yield to America's dictates, the same America with whose weapons the Zionist enemy invaded and occupied and bombed us. America is acting in the interests of our only enemy to the south of our border to impose on us what they couldn't through war. You wont succeed and we wont surrender or be broken and we wont go hungry either. We will rightful give you the middle finger as ever, when you try to fight us. We will stand strong and no internal rogue elements will be allowed to succeed either. We will give you hard knocks on your heads if you try us. If any foreign govt has issues with those who represent us, talk and hold dialogue with our legitimate representatives. Do not blackmail us with your conditions. You will only harden our resolve against you.
 
Yeah sure! Strategy of beggars. Yeah, keep bridges open cause you will need to beg for money from us later.
The right way is to have a better economy by producing and exporting not by maintaining beggars bridges, while driving the economy through the mud.
UAE is opening up to Israel and very respected coun

it is not about Hezbollah but in today’s world, Israel has won the soft diplomacy. Look where they were 50 years ago and where they are now. Medical research, space exploration, Internet, they are seen as bringing a lot to humanity with products that we as Lebanese use everyday.
So no one will support hate or war against Israel and Iran is over and soon Hezbollah will need to change strategy.
You can’t keep wanting to have good relationship with the West, consume their products, use their dollars while hating or attacking them.
Most of GCC countries understood that and even Egypt and Jordan.

Lebanon will follow up sooner than expected. Old days are over and no one is on our side
