This pioneering investigation of the New York Times accounts for the different sequences of this apocalyptic explosion, starting with the dysfunctional and corrupt Port authority and its different layers of political patronage, mafia networks, overlapping and conflicting jurisdictions and spoils systems run by the Shiite political parties (Hezbollah, Amal and their subordinate associates the Future movement presided by former prime minister Saad al Hariri, The Free Patriotic Movement of the actual President Michel Aoun, the Socialist Party of Walid Joumblatt, and a minor portion allotted to the Lebanese Forces of Samir Geagea, the Shiite and Sunnite leading religious institutions, as appendages to the clientelist system ).

The different accounts for the downloaded shipment have failed to trace the ownership, destination and usage of this lethal material (Ammonium Nitrate with 15 tons of Fireworks, jars of Kerosene, oil and hydrochloric acid, jumbled in Hangar 12 ), and why the trail of correspondence sent to the different authorities never impelled any action on their part.

The musical chairs game kept repeating over and over until the day when Lebanese civilians were blotted out from their homes, streets and workplaces, and the patrons of crime (Hezbollah and Amal and their accomplices amongst the oligarchies, notwithstanding their political affiliations) are still in the business of umpiring the faked political game, and rigging the investigation process after having amply tampered with the crime scenes and landscapes.

This whole dirty game should be deconstructed, its actors pinpointed and overtly denounced.

The impending cabinet formation is a continuation of the orchestrated fallacies that have been going on for too long.

There is need to claim back an international investigation and the assignment of Lebanon under Chapter 7 of the UN founding chart, since we have no chance to avert the pending genocidal threats, and initiate an eventual political reconstruction in a country controlled by a totalitarian Islamist dystopia (Hezbollah) and a crime syndicate (Amal).

The whole plot is distorted and awaits a major political and strategic turnaround, we are not anymore in the business of politics as usual, this whole political dynamic should be annihilated.
