Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, the US and the whole of Europe are allegedly threatning "our existence", the former general, now in bed with Iran and Syria, said today during a fundraising event.
Aoun, in his infinite wisdom, traced Lebanon and Syria's troubles back to the creation of the current Tunisian regime, which "moved to invade Syria, and then Tripoli and Akkar".
Yes, how dare Tunisians rebel against a despot and infect Syrians (and apparently Tripoli residents) with this wretched bug called "Arab Spring"?
You can't make this stuff up. But Aoun can.
Mind you, Aoun was speaking during an event marking the first anniversary of the launch of the "Seven" group, a group allegedly created to "self-finance" the party.
According to Naharnet, Aoun uttered this gem: "Whoever frequently changes his stances cannot build a nation".
Yes, Aoun has never changed his stances. And he might be right. Illusions of grandeurs rarely leave a person sane. So in that sense, the man has not changed.
