Worried Lebanese

thought crumbs on lebanese and middle eastern politics

Barbed wire across town

barbedwire.jpgEverywhere in Beirut, you find barbed wire fences. They are springing up everywhere these days: on walls, over walls, across roads, bridges, sidewalks…

They look very threatening and give the impression that Beyrouth is a very dangerous place to live in. The police, the army, corporations and individuals are setting them up around “their” territories, defending them, telling the unwanted “keep out”.

That says a lot about the city and the general atmosphere here. I wonder why nothing is being done about; why there is no public discussion on it; why it is not regulated.
