'Resisting militia': What for and till when...

Every movement or resistance should have a clear objective.
It is time for the Lebanese to request from Hizbollah a clear statement on what are they resisting for, their scope, and until when are they going to resist.

The paper from Hizbollah's side should include a clear objective(s).

2006 is witnessing today the potential of having two nation-wide parties.

March 14 parliament majority are discussing for the first time the issue of their internal structure and a political agenda.
The opposition, which now includes a big Christian party (Aoun) is organizing a meeting to set its membership, poltical paper and name.

In few years if these two blocs manage to stay till the 2009 parliamentary elections, we might witness the start of bi-party structure in Lebanon.
