Another one bites the dust. Our country is being scooped up on the cheap!
This will happen to our government assets if they are privatized now.

Ask your ally Hizbullah to hide some munitions in or under it. Israel will take care of the rest.

    My ally? Walla, I didn't know you know me more than I know myself! Who else is my ally?
    You as in FPM, obviously, considering the word was followed by "Hizbullah" -- let's not play ignorant here my orange friend.

    Also, I know everything. I'm God. Tell him @Orangina.

    An excellent, slightly superficial, description.
    Ever since we became us, we've been operating inside a flawed system camouflaged as a miracle of ta3ayoush.
    Under the watch of the ruling mafia parasitizing inside it, the monotonic ticking of religious and sectarian clockworks everywhere in the background never stopped and has been causing us political pitfalls and deadlocks at each corner. Add to the brew accumulated decades of clientelism, mismanagement and thefts and you have the imminent socio-economical collapse, famine, and perhaps war and chaos.

    The "ideas" you refer to do not stop at being ideas, they have become what defines the boundaries between our communities "way of life". Obviously these do diverge on so many levels, we are where we are today despite MoUs, alliances and political agreements in the form of tebwees le7a whenever needed. This means that the probability for us at this stage to forge one least common denominator, like a national identity, equals zero. Bass it doesn't stop there, it gets worse.

    We Lebanese, as individuals, never really experienced the value of being citizens, true citizens. Cantonize the land according to religious boundaries and you'd still have everywhere the same seller-client relationship established between the state's institutions and us, the "citizens", with the mafia of traditional families za3eem sitting like another Jabba the Hutt in between, controlling the transactions. This is a fundamental flaw in our society.

    To conclude, you have two huge problems you need to solve before you can dream of a decent life in Lebanon, that is if the country still exists as we know it after the looming catastrophe hits it with full strength.
    One: If still united under one banner in one country, our communities lack of one least common national denominator stronger than religion and sect.
    Two: if in applied federalism/confederalism or any sort of peaceful divorce, without complete makeover of the governing system, the current problems will only be a copy/paste from the old to the new. Else your children's children will wake up and go to bed with the same worries you carry today.

    The third problem I didn't mention is the most unsolvable. Educating the people to become aware of how to reclaim and hold on to being true citizens not clients.
    The third problem is solved by having a strong state and good economy that is able to protect or secure all its citizens and is not above the law!
    Something Lebanon clearly always lacked of!

    Lebanon is just doomed to be failure until the republic completely cease to exist..
    We simply have no chance against international giants, we need to be part of something big and we need to and must expand..

    This is true anywhere in the World..

    'People will die within months': Lebanon heads for famine as pandemic accelerates hunger
    Hit by its worst economic crisis in modern history, there are fears the country is about to repeat the 1915-18 famine

    I think many people still don't realize how fcked the situation is like i mean seriously fcked.. so you see them only complaining about people protesting/rioting and shit!

    I don't think so, as long as you have a diaspora of millions of Lebanese who are sending USD to their families in Leb and as long as Banks are giving fresh money in USD to the beneficiary........ however yes some families will suffer as not all have relatives abroad.

    millions? where the hell did you get that number from..
    this number is unreal.. are you counting on the people who emigrated a century ago ? :rolleyes:

    There will be people sleeping very hungry and more becoming homeless for sure.
    But those were already struggling with life since before all this..
