I agree. But Geagea was not president. He was bot part of an alliance with the majority in parliament. He did not have key ministries.

There is no agreement. In a Master/slave situations the master (Berri) orders and the slave (Aoun) executes. Then the follow.
Berri jarrab yel3ab ma3 el 7akim bel Tayyouneh and we all know the results. So try coming up with something convincing.Ya3neh Berri will be with the 6mps? This is FPM and what the law says

You're going to counter HA, a party backed by a serious technologically-advanced (by Middle Eastern standards) regional force with billions of dollars with low IQ thugs? Good luck with that.We need a few of the old guard right now for one reason only: to counter Hizballah's thuggery. This is why we need Samir Geagea, George Adwan, Abou Assi, and even Zahra ("the people living in the seventies"). Its only because Hizballah exists. If not, we would have all intellectuals, academics, a few businessmen probably even secularists within the LF.
Some party needs to take the role of counter balance to HA and make it known to them that Islamization of Lebanon will not occur. Hizballah's cross regional army is the largest threat to Lebanon's existence. They are always obstructing progress and reform in the government and are partly to blame for the mess we are in. They supported all of Michel Aouns obstruction work so they are hand in hand responsible for every single crisis the country goes through.
If you only had weak Christian dhimmi leaders like Gebran Bassil who legitimatized Hezbollah's army then we would be doomed. You cannot defeat HA by giving them legitmacy. You defeat them by building a cross confessional coalition within the Parliament that votes to disarm the militia along with US and Iranian agreement (unfortunately). People like Samir Geagea will go away once Hizballah has been neutralized, remember that.
Won't even talk about Ziad Hawat. I am not aware of any shady deals that you are referring about. All I know he is a self-made business man. And the people of Amshit and Jbeil love him for the improvements he has made for his area.
