I like this part.
But frankly drinking heavily is becoming a serious problem in Lebanon, if we add to alcohol arms, fast cars, then it could lead to death. In addition to social issues related especially to aggression of ladies that irritate their companions and then it becomes an honnor issue. I used to live next to a hotel with a night club down and we had to wake-up 4 AM on honor retaliation.
For instance, my cousin starts insulting GMA every time he drinks, now i am not inviting anymore him to lunch or dinners
the problem is not the alcohol, but your cousin , feelings gets liberated /assisted by alcohol
i read thast one lady was killed this morning in Kaslik , in front of a club, details still sketchy
the reality,. lebanon has become so dangerous
you don't know when and how one will end up in trouble or at the receiving end of a bullet
there is impunity,
laws are applied selectively
this trip i witnessed two incidents of road rage, where young men came down from their vehicles and beat the other driver...luckily in both cases, the victim wasn't one to use a gun, but thats an incident bound to happen sooner than later
i almost got into an fight with some guys because i parked for less than a minute in front of a shop ( i was in the car ) waiting for someone and they started the abuse and car banging
in tripoli, there is so much lawlessness, that at nights , you hear shootings all over the place ,and illegal check points by gangs and diff groups
last year summer, a friend of mine son was misbehaving and each night ( bi shafett bel siyara around 2 am) , some of the tenants warned him to stop
he didnt, so one night , one of the tenants took his KA47 and sprayed the car ( he was hit in the shoulder and his friend in the leg) granted he was an asshole, but you shoot him ??????
even during the civil war it wanst as bad as today , as each area had their known gangs that you can talk with.
RIP FOR YVES, GOD help his family , it looks like the Poor victim family has to either shut up and leave it to GoD ( as we say) or be forced to get their revenge ....both outcomes are unpleasant
