And the Arab summit is over…

The latest Arab League Summit ended and of course nothing changed and nothing was done, as always. Meanwhile, in Lebanon, the latest period of time has ended his period of calm has just ended. The opposition will once more escalate its action to up the stakes. Of course the consequence of such an action will be fully blamed on 14 March…

So all in all nothing new under the sun. Lahoud was humiliated twice in the summit. Once for not being greeted by the Saudi king on his arrival, like all the other leaders, and twice for the King’s refusal to meet him in private while meeting PM Siniora.

Meanwhile Lahoud was so happy to meet up with Bashar Assad that his grin almost split his face. Ahhh that much love can only be for the interests of Lebanon doesn’t it…

On the home front, a frigid stand still permeates the political arena. Some are waiting for the unfolding of the crisis between Iran and the west, other are waiting for the change in the west leadership to take place. They are all waiting, while the country is slowly emptying.

So all in all nothing new under the sun, a time to gather rocks around and a time to scatter them…
