The unacknowledged reality of Lebanon
Dr Walid Phares
ceased to exist as a fully independent Government -which was launched in 1943-
on October 13, 1990 when the Syrian Army entered the Ministry of Defense in
Yarze' and the Presidential Palace in Baabda. It grabbed the entire Lebanese
state's national security archives, and since then no President or Army
leadership were able to enter these two buildings without the approval of
Damascus and Hezbollah".
"Every part of the political mechanism in the Lebanese Republic for 24 years has never escaped these two forces since. The Cedars Revolution was one short window to change this reality and it was failed. Without going back to the genesis of the defeat, and reverse it, little can be done”.
