Will today be the day!

In the suffocating deadlock griping Lebanon, I keep wondering will today become the official day the second civil war started on?

The first civil war officially started on April 13 1975. Of course many events preceded this date, but everything needs a beginning and on that date a bus travelling through the once Christian neighbored carrying Palestinian was stopped and its passengers shot…

So each morning when I wake up I wonder if today will be labeled “the day the second Lebanese civil war started on”

Meanwhile, this day might have come and passed, maybe on 23 and 25 January, or even last Sunday where two young men (one 12 years old and the other 25) who support Joumblat’s PSP (Progressive Socialist Party, which is part of the 14 March alliance), have been kidnapped and are yet to be found…

Yesterday, rumors engulfed the country, and the tension was sky high… However the situation is still dangerous, for if the two young men are not returned swiftly, or even worse they are killed, then the PSP will want to exact vengeance. And from that point blood will call for more blood, and the infernal cycle will start once more…
