What does Aoun think of Bachir Gemayel?

As I understand, the clashes between LF and Aoun only started after the assassination of Bachir. Hence, Aoun and Bachir never fought each other.

Knowing Aoun is a moderate and secular guy, I'm curious to know he felt about a hardline and sectarian warlord like Bachir. I've noticed that Aounists, themselves tend to be mixed. Some love the guy, others consider him a criminal.

Good question

We have to know that a large base of Aoun's supporter in general are either:

Qoudama : Kataeb, ouwwet, tanzim, horras arz and Ahrar

Or

Qoudama : ketleh wataniyyeh, awmiyyeh (yes there are some), communists, and other ex- left parties

The former category tend to adulate BG (except few ahrar) the latter category tend to consider him as a warlord sectarian criminal.

Therefore, Aoun is very prudent when he talks about BG during interviews in order to not embarass the second category. Intelligently he talked in a very prudent way about habib chartouni on the eve of the election in Matn after pierre gemayel's assassination in order to earn the sympathy of the NSSP.

Thanks for the detailex answer.

Whatever happened to the National Bloc aka Ketleh Watanieh? That was one of the most respectful parties out there.

Go and read the near Lebanese history, you will know the answer alone without anyone to explain it to both of you.

How old are you guys, I think you are in the twenties or the thirties. If you are older this question is non sense. Everyone knows that Michel Aoun was one of the gamma group.
Go and read the book of waddah sharara or any book talking really about the intelligencia group of bash.
3ayb ya Maronite. I doubt about your loyalty ya maronite. I think that u r politically involved in some political groups. So have plz a giraffe neck before writing anything about us the Maronites.

By the way, in that gamma group, PMA was not all the time at the same wave as Bashir. So many times according to archives, they have had different point of views but at the end the interest of a FreeLebanon has to be done.

Age is not s factor, they haven't read the books.... l'histoire de la guerre au Liban (Alain menargues) if u prefer french...

Maybe Aoun supported Bashir in the beginning when he was fighting the Palis but I'm sure he didn't approve of LF/Kataeb's principles (or rather lack of them), sectarianism, and ID-based massacres.

After all, it's Bachir's party he was fighting against.

Clashes started in 1989 and leaded in 1990 to an open war. Before that date LF and Aoun were some kind of allies.
Regarding Bachir , Aoun was part of his close circle, he also took part in many battles like tal el zaatar for instance.

He's really handsome too (no homo)

He seems to have the charisma and looks!!! Very important for politics. You can be edameh but if you don't have charisma; are boring, you don't know how to deliver the message effectively; you go nowhere.
