Now that Elias Murr detonated the bomb, namely claiming that he received death threats from Syrian intelligence officers prior to his assassination attempt, will Murr ever return to Lebanon while Lahoud is in Baabda? Will Murr ever assume his position as Defense Minister in this government? Especially after Lahoud was quick at lavishing Syria with talk of a"model" relationship with the "shaqeeqa" and is glad with buddy Yacoub Sarraf as Defense Minister substitute?
These are good questions to ask. I am indeed so interested in the details that we the public rarely get any glimpse of. There is definitely a power struggle between Elias Murr and his father-in-law. Is it possible that Lahoud has severed ties even with his son-in-law just for the sake of keeping his "stellar" ties with Syria?
What about when Elias Murr was assassinated a couple of months back, it was claimed that even pro-Syrians are being targeted? Well, after all, I guess it wasn't a message to a pro-Syrian; it was a message to someone who has challenged the Syrian tutelage and we didn't know about that then.
My question then is: what did Lahoud do to protect his son-in-law? He did nothing; of course he knew of the threats against Elias Murr, but Lahoud did nothing. Lahoud could sacrifice widowing his daughter for the sake of staying on. What about Mrs. Lahoud? What's her take on her husband's actions towards her family?
I still haven't heard the father, Michel Murr's take on his son's declarations. Did he put his father in a tough situation? Will Aoun change his stance towards Lahoud after all? I read that this time around with Chidiac's assassination attempt, Aoun did not go all out defending Lahoud.
On another note, we are still in the dark when it comes to what Aoun's representative discussed in his meeting with Saad Hariri in Paris. Shortly after, Aoun claimed on Assafir that he asks Seniora and his defense minister to resign. What happened in Paris?
We are left with so many questions; we demand the answers to issues that are shaping our political and national destiny. We are kept in the dark. We as youth demand to know the facts so we could be able to decide for ourselves whom to cheer for and whom to drive out of power!
