On the Eve of May 10th

At this moment it seems as "all systems go" for tomorrow's Labor Unions' march. As is the case with everything else in Lebanon, the unions belong to rival political parties. So Labor demands naturally put us on "the verge" of civil war.

As usual the majority team cried "Syria", I'm not sure that still has any effect though. I mentioned Kamel El Assaad a couple of posts back, well I think he is Saad Hariri's dynasty advisor. At the pace things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if Fouad Siniora and Saad Hariri end up in jail for the assassination of Rafiq Hariri.

Anyways, I will go down to the street tomorrow and quiz the people on the economic reform plan, that should be interesting.

One of them analysts was saying yesterday that the plan is a well kept secret, even the ministers don't have an idea of what it contains. I swear, it was on tv. :)

Secrecy is very good Bashir, and we have successful precedents for that.

Like the famous Cairo accord in 1969 which was kept from the idiots in parliament who overwhelmingly voted for it.

Of course, Arafat's chauffeur knew all about the provisions of the accord, but that's another story.

:-(
