Sliding...

The situation is sliding into an attrition war. The broad support by all Lebanese and Palestinian faction, other than “Fateh al Islam”, to the army and its actions against those cold blood terrorist, has been eroding rapidly…

The main Palestinian representative in Lebanon has started speaking about the cost of the army attack on the naher el Bered camp and the need to find a political resolution to the crisis. Several protests march where held in the other palesitnain camps spread all over lebanon.

I think that the window of opportunity, to decisively resolve the situation, is rapidly closing, a day or two at most. A political “resolution” will only postpone the problem and even compound it. If “fateh al islam” terrorists are not dealt with decisively, then a couple of month down the road we will face an even bigger explosion.

Meanwhile, the opposition is totally politicizing the situation making the army’s job even more difficult, while explosions are not stopping. for the first time, west Beirut (mainly Muslim) has been hit.

Fortunately, the casualties have been low, as those who are planting these bombs are purposely placing them in deserted places late at night. A fact that definetly innocent any Queada like organization, whose sole objective is to kill a maximum number of innocents, as Iraq is the biggest example...

Finally let us hope that tongiht will be calm...
