True colors

Hezballah is showing its true colors by backing up Syria in Lebanon, which the other lebanese factions warn will ruin the national unity. What brought on the disagreement? Well... During a meeting on Thursday, the cabinet condemned Syrian President Bashar Al Assad's remarks against Siniora and Sa'ad Al Hariri. Five ministers representing the Shiite Hezbollah Party and Amal Movement walked out of the Cabinet meeting, saying that they need more time to study the speech before issuing an official statement. Sources from the party said "it is not comfortable with the reaction of the cabinet which condemned Bashar". A source said: "Siniora and the Cabinet should focus on the positive side of Bashar's speech, during which Syria's willingness to cooperate with the UN Commission probing the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri was expressed." Hehehe. That's like a date rapist saying to its victim: "Ignore how i raped you and please just focus on the positive side of the date, the one where I took you out and bought you drinks." Hezballah is stupid.

I don't know if stupid is the right word. They're scared their thug sugar daddies aren't going to be around forever and that their gravy train backing could be closing up on them. Like all desperate mafioso they're going down kicking and screaming.
Even AMAL left the meeting as well though? Man it's getting interesting.

That's the best analogy ever! Applies to SO many evils in the world...Saudi Arabia, to just start with. "Old Europe," another. I'm stealing that line!
