To all of you out there, friends and enemies, Arabs and Jarabs, look at how my country of Lebanon continues to prove to the world that it is indeed the laughingstock, the farce, and the most surreal country on earth.
Minister of Electricity Gebran Imbecile Bassil in the current Lebanese Hezbollah government is calling on the Lebanese people to "take to the streets" because he, the Minister of Electricity, cannot provide the electricity he promised them when he received an allocation of 1.2 billion dollars a year ago, supposedly to fix the electricity shortage in a country the size of my asshole.
Imagine: The Minister in charge has 1.2 billion dollars allocated to fix the problem, but the only thing he has to offer the Lebanese people, in exchange for his incompetence, is to protest against him! This is really the theater of the absurd.
Does this make sense to anyone? Is this some sort of upside down logic? There is no respectable country on earth that would engage in this sort of acrobatics, other than a country of Mafiosi, sectarian gangsters, and outright primitives like Lebanon.
Typically, when a Minister in a government is unable to discharge his duties - regardless of whether it is his own fault or dereliction, or the dereliction or obstruction of some other Minister with him in the government - he has two options:
- A political option: Either shut up and shoulder the responsibility in solidarity with your own government, or
- A personal (decent) option: JUST RESIGN.
But Minister Khara Gebran Imbassile wants to have it both ways. He wants to be in a government (because that makes him important) even if this government is not letting him do his job. A year ago, Imbassil went head first into his Hezbollah ally government, as his demented Tonton Michel Aoun obstructed the formation of the government for several months for the sole demand that his baby son-in-law Gebran be appointed a Minister in that government. What is it therefore that he is complaining about now, if he cannot get his Hezbollah buddies to agree with him on fixing the electricity problem of a puny stupid little country like Lebanon, even as they gave him 1.2 billion dollars to do so?
If his own allies in the government are not helping him, and if he has any decency in him, this jackass, whose only claim to power is not his intelligence or his merits, but simply that he fucks the demented Aoun's daughter on a regular basis, this jackass should resign.
But this is how this masquerade of a country operates: No accountability, no responsibility, other than holding on to your political and religious tribe like grim death, no matter the performance or lack thereof. Gebran Imbassile will stick to Hezbollah even as Hezbollah is fucking him in his electric ass, at the cost of 1.2 billion dollars to be wasted and pilfered and stolen and pocketed by all the cronies and clients of the Free Patriotic Movement and Hezbollah, and as both these criminal enterprises continue to drag the country under the Syrian and Iranian umbrellas and away from the normality of a decent civilized member of the international community.
Read below what the other FPM jackass - Ziad Ass-wad, MP no less - was pontificating about, to justify the untenable position of staying in power even as you cannot do your job. These people are simply stupid or demented, and they simply believe that the Lebanese people are also stupid and demented, just like them.
Change and Reform bloc MP Ziad Aswad commented on the electricity issue saying that he is against the bloc’s resignation from the cabinet “at this time,” and added that he supports protesters taking to the streets.
Aswad told LBC television on Tuesday that Prime Minister Najib Mikati “cannot sit down and toss the responsibility” on Energy Minister Gebran Bassil, a Change and Reform bloc minister.
“Bassil is not the only person responsible for energy because the entire cabinet approved [the bloc’s] proposal on electricity.”
The MP added that the responsibility falls on the cabinet and that it is “unacceptable to hold only one person responsible.”
Last year, the cabinet approved Bassil’s electricity plan to allocate $1.2 billion to the Energy Ministry, on condition that the funds be transferred in installments and that the government supervises the project to increase electricity output by 700 Megawatts.
