i am pretty sure everybody enjoys celebrating independence day, except the people in the UK…
i am Lebanese, and the 22nd of november is Lebanon’s independence, so people whore me out with there love of their country. they suddenly love their country and celebrate the hero’es of the lebanese independence, and this year there is a parade for the first time to celebrate the glory full war and all the brave warriors who sacrificed there selves in the sake of freedom, all the brave acts done against the french back then to end the mandate such as modifying the constitution and modifying the flag.
Let me rephrase that, every year on the 22nd of november Lebanon celebrate what the think is an independence. First of all, no body died in sake of independence, they litrary kissed the asses of General spears and some other countries as USA and Russia so that the french government will release the president and ministers from the prison they were captivated in. I mean, no body even bothered killing a french soldier or attacking a headquarter or anything, they just did a little strike, burned wheels (lebanese tradition), and sent letters of “discomfort” to the powerful countries back then. Of course, that was after nearly 40 years of “loving” the french and playing by their rules without expressing nearly any vexation (only few times such things happened)
And the worst of all, is that since the so called Lebanese independence, *shit hasn’t changed, i mean, all countries still control lebanons every move in everything, they fund both quarreling sides, so they can quarrel even harder, and people of both sides fight against each other like mindless idiots harder than a vrigin in a zombie threesome .And the worst part of all, is that both quarreling sides believe that the other side is the big bad wolf that aims to rape the country, and steal its resources. So, thinking they are the just ones, every side tries to ruin the image of the othenr team by bombing, increasing theft, increasing inflation rate while the opposing team is in charge. And the people are happy since the opposing team is loosing, and most importantly, there sect leader\political leader is satisfied *fear the anger and discomfort of the leader -_-*.
The last passage is an inevitable fact that loads of lebanese citizens are aware of, but surprisingly, they do nothing at all (some very small strikes are thrown every now and then, but the media doesn’t air them, nor tell viewers about them, since political leaders are in control of all the channels).
happy unindependence day lebanon, you still have a very long hard road out of the shit hole of religious, sectarianism, racism, and all other types of social and whatever types of struggles.
