Digging Out The Truth And The Dead

News of uncovering a mass grave of 13 dead at the Defense Ministry in Yarze from the October 13, 1990 tragic events reminded me of when a mass grave was discovered of Iraqi prisoners right after the fall of Saddam's regime in Iraq.

It's as if the Baathist regime in Lebanon has fallen...even when Lebanon was never Baathist. But it's all starting to make sense now; the same face of the same coin.

It is painful to fathom that for 15 years Syrian-backed Defense ministers walked over that mass grave unruffled by the truth. That General Lahoud walked over those grounds unruffled as well.

It is time for them to all leave; it is disgusting what truths are being uncovered. They say that there are more mass graves in Yarze; more uncovered wounds to open and scourch. I am certain that they will be dug out, that the souls of those Lebanese fighters (and it does not matter what side they were on) will see the light, breathe the free air, and rest in peace at last.

"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."

Reason 12564 fo Lahoud to shoot a bullet through his brains, if he can find them.
