1. Prime Minister Najib Miqati of this dysfunctional arse of a country called Lebanon is now - like many of his predecessor Sunni fucker prime ministers - sulking. He said that he will no longer convene his cabinet until "acts of obstruction" stop. Reason: One of his ministers does not want sign on a law that he feels is "illegal".
You would think that a "democratic" country, there are rules of procedure to resolve problems like this. Either the minister in question resigns, or the cabinet resigns, or Parliament convenes on a vote of confidence, or the matter is referred to some judicial body, etc... But not in Lebanon. Why? Because Lebanon's democracy is a charade. It's a lie. It's a farce. It's a wannabe democracy. It's a theocracy of feudal middle ages vintage parading as a modern republic.
Lebanon is ruled by dinosaurs like Patriarch Beshara Rai of the Moronite Church, or the Sheikh Al-Aqel of the Druze Cult, or the Iranian Mullah of the Shia Islamic Council, etc.. There are 18 religious cults that the Lebanese so-called constitution recognizes, and these cults run the country behind a facade of secular-looking puppet politicians beholden to the dinosaur in charge of the cult. Let's say you are a Christian politician of the moronic Maronite brand, and let's say you want to run for election. If your political positions are not approved by the bearded smelly Patriarch of the Moronite Church, then you'd have an uphill battle to get elected. How? Because the bearded smelly Patriarch tells his army of bishops, priests, and nuns to launch a campaign of smears against the politician in the hundreds of schools and churches attended by a captive Moronite population, largely composed of mountain peasant brutes who will believe anything coming out of the mouth of the religious militiaclergy. Same thing exactly in the Sunni cult, the Shiite cult, and so on all the way down to the littlest of the 18 religious cults that make up this "Democracy" of Lebanon.
2. Hassan Nasrallah - the bearded smelly leader of the terrorist gang of Hezbollah - has a similar hold on the Shiite community. He has dragged his million plus Shiite idiots into endless wars and displacement, simply because his God and his boss the Ayatollah in Iran tell him he has to annihilate the Jews in nearby Israel and create an Islamic republic in Lebanon a la Iran. Lovely, isn;t it? Hassan maintains an illegal militia against the will of the other Lebanese, and he gets funded by Iran and armed by the Syrian "Secular" Baathists in Damascus.
Now things are not going well in Syria, as the "secular" Arab Nazi fuhrer there, the giraffe-looking Bashar Assad, is about to lose his brutal control of the country. If his ass is fried like Qaddafi's ass was fried in Libya, then Bashar will have to pack (if he can escape the wrath of his people) his belongings, including the billions he has stashed in his Swiss Bank accounts, and his entire court of wife, children, associates, courtiers, ass-kissers and such, and leave the country.
That scenario is making Hassan Quixote Nasrallah - as we say here in the highlands of Lebanon - shit potatoes. He is terrified that his illustrious career of country-wrecker, mass-killer, bomb-maker-blowupper, God-worshipper, traitor and mercenary will come to an end, and that he too will have to pack and move to Iran (where he actually belongs). So he and his cohorts are defending the Syrian tyrant. They, these shiite religious dinosaurs, have joined with the Atheists and Communists of Russia and China in defense of the "secular"-but-kind-of-Muslim Arab-nationalist Alawite regime of the Assads.What a bunch.
