Each Lebanese era has its taboos. During the Syrian era, nobody was allowed to criticize Asad (father, son, nephew, uncle, brother, etc). In the new Saudi-France-US era of Lebanon, nobody is allowed to mention the obvious--not a single Lebanese newspaper dared to mention it--: that Rafiq Hariri was indeed the force behind UNSC 1559. It was "his baby" as one UN official told the Times of London.
