Get Him Some Prozac Please!

General Michel Aoun is desperately in need of Prozac.

I couldn't believe my ears when the General warned today that four young men with some petroleum fuel could burn Solidere in case the March 14 coalition tries to topple President Emile Lahoud through street protests.

I knew he had a Napoleon complex but not an Emperor Nero one.

In my earlier posts I had criticized Walid Jumblat, Samir Geagea and Hassan Nasrallah for their violent language and Saad Hariri for his inexperience but Aoun exceeded my worst expectations today.

I had thought that the General had calmed down after his understanding with Hezbollah and with the Lebanese Forces on the Baabda elections. But I was wrong. The man is as unfit to lead Lebanon as any current sectarian leader.

Does he know the impact of his words? Does he know that the well being of four million Lebanese is more important than his political career? Does he know that his anger can make the Lebanese economy lose tens of millions of US dollars by scaring investors and tourists? Does he know that tonight parents and children in Lebanon will sleep in fear of tomorrow?

Why is he adding fuel to the fire? Why isn't he trying to build concensus? Why aren't the leaders that we elected to serve our interests concerned about our welfare?

So many questions and so many fools without an answer. On days like these I often wonder whether we deserve our independence and our freedom and whether we weren't better off under Syrian hegemony.

Because Aoun is a PRO syrian rat! If he EVER thinks he is going to be president of Lebanon than he needs to keep living in his dream world. Lahoud the monkey will be gone soon, and we will have a REAL Lebanese president very soon.

Aoun is the biggest loser, next to lahoud, nasrallah, berri...basically ALL PRO syrians.

GOD BLESS LEBANON

Aoun is a little syrian agent. He was a failure as a military officer, he was a disaster as a unifying force(he clashed against the Christians in late 80's being the main cause for their migration. He has no knowledge or comprehention of politics>...
The guy is a little cockroach!!

I have just recently come across this blog and really enjoy the honesty of it. Although I do not agree with many of your posts, I respect them, and I think that with this one you really touched on something important: the poverty of leadership in Lebanon (and for that matter, most of the Arab World). There has to be some connection with the 'failure' of the Lebanese state and the vulgar tribalization of politics in the country, but...WHAT? The Lebanese people have been held hostage for too long by the narrow and vulgar sectarianism of all its leaders, Aoun, Jumblatt, Ja'ja, they are no different than one another.

I don't get your anger honestly! he said that I doesn't make sence that people will make revolutions against the Baabda palace because democracy states that the president has to be removed using constitutional means. He is saying that more revolutions will lead to the destruction of what Rafic Hariri built. So what is wrong with what he said? he is warning them because so far they have acted with very little responsability towards the country... How many more martyrs are going to surface?
I want the president to be toppled but I don't want my country to be destroyed for that!!
Usually I like your opinions but this one makes no sence really.

its funny how you take things out of context and make an issue out of it. I am not defending the aoun but if you heard his whole speach you would not have reacted the same way.
this is the future tv effect. always one sided.
