PLAY ON!

Ok something is weird.
Are we so low in the pyramid of the food chain?
Have we no value? No worth?

After the war in Iraq and its escalating continuous effects, it became evident that there were two countries next on the black list. And everybody unmistakable knew which countries were in question.

For a period of time, we thought that Iran was next. Debates and threats kept heating up. And we thought ooops! That's it, close your eyes and brace yourselves!
...
But all that was dismissed. We opened our eyes again.

Then the focus changed. The target shifted to Syria. Again as debates and threats heated, there was tremendous pressure from everybody, and we though ooops! That's it, close your eyes again! Hold on!
...
But again it was dismissed.

Suddenly, without any debates or serious threats (be it heated or cold), and without any kind of pressure, we didn't even have the chance to utter ooops.
We get hit. A twister crosses the southern border, and the whole world is watching.

What!!!

This is no coincidence man! We really are expendable. The entire planet is fighting its war on Lebanese soil.
Lebanon is the coliseum.
...
It is all about scale. Think about it.

Think of Lebanon as being the green grass of a football field; the bleachers and the crowd, the whole world. A couple of sold-out referees are thrown in here and there, the whistle blows and:
PLAY ON!

PS: I hope this will not be taken as a discourse of victimization, inferiority complex, or self pity. It is no conspiracy theory either. It is just one of those things you think about sometimes, and then dismiss soon after.

I clicked on 'comment' in order to write don't dismiss it, but I see Mirvat's beaten me to it;
Another comment though, the whole let's celebrate by giving out be'lewa in the streets episode they kept on showing in the news reports got two reactions out of me: laughter and sadness; both for the impressive level of stupidity achieved by the 'sweet-distributors'!

true... I am sure though that if tourrists didn't have to flee the country, there would have been more baklava sales...
now they just have to distribute the few trays, before they run to the bomb shelters.
