The x – March 14 group, now better known as the February 14 group – as dubbed by Hizbullah Deputy Secretary General Naim Kassem to separate them from Michel Aoun, are making one faux pas after the other. Will one of the "disposable" members of this team soon be conveniently assassinated as has happened the last few times they needed a political push?
UPDATE: On Lebanese Coincidences
Thank you, AbdulKarim for an intelligent, decent, and constructive comment. I stand corrected. I want to point out that I wished to communicate this thought to the blogosphere based on at least two coincidences where the “FM-LF-PSP” team needed more political leverage and gained it when some members of their alliance were targeted. The first time was when the local stakeholders were negotiating the issue of extending the UN Committee’s scope to cover the other crimes and explosions. May Shidiak’s assassination attempt took place in those days. The second coincidence is the fact that Gebran Tweini was assassinated on the very morning of the government’s meeting to discuss the international tribunal. In both cases, the assassination attempts, one of which was a failure, helped strengthen the political stand of what is now the Feb. 14 team.
