Worried Lebanese

thought crumbs on lebanese and middle eastern politics

Civil war: a recipe

Posted by worriedlebanese on 19/12/2006

People these days are wondering when a civil war will erupt in Lebanon, Iraq (surrealisticaly) or/and the Palestinian territories. But very little seems to be done to prevent that from happening.

In fact, exterior actors have been acting in a way that is likely to provoke or encourage civil strife in these coutries.
– They are taking sides in interior conflicts.
– They are demonising one side and offering incentives to the other side to oppose it.

One cannot blame foreign actors alone. Internal actors are equally responsible for the deterioration of the political situation. All the foreign actors are doing is adding gazoline to a fire.
