Lebanon’s Parliamentary Collapse

17 Jan

Democracy can only take hold when the people are willing to fight and die for it. In no case has a successful democracy ever been installed by an outside power. In 2005/2006, if you would have asked me about democracy in the Middle East, I would have to you we should forget Iraq; we should put our support toward Lebanon.

The Lebanese were kicking out Syria. They were fighting for a voice. They established their own Parliament. And now it’s fallen apart. This is the real Middle Eastern experiment in representative government.  Watch carefully, the future may depend on it.
