Fasten your seatbelts. This is Lebanon we are talking about

Yes, back to my hobby horse Lebanon. Probably due to the fact that I just returned from what is probably one of the most fabulous countries in the world. What a pity the country is again being torn apart by some warlords from the past. In the old days the divide supposedly set on religious lines, Christians versus Muslims. Now, it is Pro-Syrian versus Anti Syrian. Or Sunni versus Shia. Perhaps a more appropriate label would be the haves and the have-nots. The hour of truth is approaching fast as the presidential elections are now postponed until 23 October. So sit tight and fasten them seatbelts.
