Amal Representative speech - I didn't watch it. Irrelevant.
Hizballah Representative - split according to the following proportions:
50% of his speech was: you are the larger, more righteous, more courageous crowd.
10% of his speech was: this is not a sectarian movement
5% of his speech was: this government has failed and is not representative
35% of his speech was: we want Lebanon back under the Iranian/Syrian yoke - of course, he said so indirectly. He bashed American and Israel.
my comment: yepeee!
50% of his speech was: this government and political elite has failed
50% of his speech was: I will do a better job.
my comment: all right!
So from what I'm witnessing, I can surmise that Hizballah has the following plan: It seeks to take the country back to a state of active war with Israel - because that's all that party can demand - that's all it can actually do. And then, instead of having Hariri and Co. govern the internal affairs of the Lebanon, Hizballah will delegate that task (which, of course, is beneath them) to Aoun and Co.
Oh... I am sooooo looking forward to this new era in Lebanon's History. FABULOUS!
I am even tempted to encourage this new governing formula for Lebanon - a formula where Hizballah is effectively sovereign and Aoun, governor. Where one asks his crowd to scream death to America, and the other quotes the American constitution. Where one says we want a country that is not beholden to international resolutions, and the other says that he supports all international resolutions.
akh, akh, akh... la wayn? la wayn rayha ya libnen?
