Aoun's surprising call

Filed under: Middle East

Hezbollah's ally and former foe General Michel Aoun, leader of the Free Patriotic Movement asked Siniora's government "to file a complaint with the UN Security Council so that any country exporting terrorists to Lebanon is condemned."

If it were not serious it would be hilarious. The countries that provoke chaos in Lebanon are the same that support his ally, Hezbollah.

Moreover, when the Lebanese army responded to Fatah al Islam terrorist attacks, Aoun as opposed to Sheikh Nasrallah said that the army has to do whatever it can to protect itself and the citizens. Is this a sign that Aoun is distancing himself from Hezbollah? FPM place was not along HA side to begin with.
