Public Transportation in Lebanon'06.

Who said us Lebanese each drive our own car to get to the grocery store just around the corner? Not true! We are very cautious with the Environment, we are Urban friendly, and we use Public Transportation viscously.
And here's the proof:


This is how you empty a country of its citizens, and inhabitants.
In less than two weeks, one third of the population of one country was forcefully displaced.
Many killed, many injured, and many more humiliated.
Who is to blame? Who is to pay?

President Bush weren't those your words today?
"Terrorist kill innocent lives in order to achieve objectives…"

Prime Minister Blair weren't those also your words today?
"…we will call for a solution and a cease fire sometimes NEXT WEEK…"

How about right NOW!

Only You have the power to stop the killing of innocent civilians. Please say stop now. Regardless of who started it, and who's pride is going to get hurt.

STOP THIS WAR!

In today's Bush/Blair press conference, Nick Robinson from BBC posed an excellent question:

"You spoke of building houses, as part of your aid to Lebanon, but wouldn’t the Lebanese rather you ask Israel to stop destroying their own houses...
… and isn’t it true that you think that Israel is on the right side of the war, and you want them to win?"

Here's to objective journalism.

Nick Robinson is my favourite political correspondent. He has a blog too, you know? Here it is, if you want to check it out.

We always knew that Bush was an eejit. We always suspected that Blair was one too. The crisis in Lebanon has confirmed our suspicions.

_z. if he orders this to stop, how are the bushes and the chanys and the boltons and the woolfowitzes going to make any money? back then if someone opposed to nam, they were communists. now if someone opposed to iraq, they encourage terrorism and if they oppose to what israel is doing in lebanon or gaza, they're self-hating jews and anti-semites.

btw, cheer up it'll be over this wednesday..

Dear Z.
Allow me to tell you that your display picture seems a bit inapproriate.. the black mark on the corner of a picture is commonly known to be used in the case of Death.. I hope you could change into a more "optimistic" one..

Dear none/dxb_
Your point is very well taken. Actually when i put up this display picture, I had the same dilemma, and the same concerns. But then I came to the conclusion that a country is its people, and the people make a country.
There is about 400 dead already. I am mourning the innocent that were murdered, and the country (the flag) is mourning its people.

Today, "Lebanon is dead, long live Lebanon"
