Just imagine if the Lebanese Forces had maintained its opposition Role
Roger Bejjani/Face Book/August 11/17
Just imagine if the LF had maintained its opposition and refused to vote for Aoun (he would have been elected since their MPs would have not made any difference) and refused to take part in a government with Hezbollah and rejected the sectarian rhetoric.
Simply the LF would have been today the largest political party in Lebanon grouping a nationwide multi-confessional crowd and would have embodied the true alternative.
Instead, due to Melhem Pakradouni and the “embourgeoisement” and the very recent “pragmatism” of Geagea, the LF have lost their credibility.

The Bachir Lebanese Forces that we knew does not exist any more
Elias Bejjani/August 11/17
It is no surprise that Geagea’s presidential dream and delusion has marginalized the LF’s resistance role and wiped off its patriotic history. Geagea’s own power agenda practically has turned the LF in to a feudal and commercial party like all the rest. Sadly the LF that we knew does not exist any more. In reality it turned to be an arena for one man show and an ugly replicate of all the Lebanese so called political parties.
