I owe you an apology. You've proved me wrong.
I had no faith in you. You must admit, history was not on your side.
I thought you would crack under fire. Israel thought so too, it was banking on it. It based its whole war on this premise. How could they not think so, any observer of Lebanon's never ending internal friction could see how feebly tied together this society was.
I saw you a month ago creating divisions on top of divisions just so you can further taunt each other. You have used every shade in the color spectrum to differentiate yourselves from your neighbors, cousins, and brothers.
I was doubting the concept of Lebanon. I was afraid it will become just another history lesson of failed sociological experiments.
Lebanon will not be a failed experiment because of you, mighty people of Lebanon. Your will will never be bent, your Country will forever be respected, because of you. An army of 4 million hardened unique soldiers cannot be defeated.
I don't know what it is that holds all of you freaks together, but it is damn special.
I was wrong about you.
Please accept my apologies.
