Signs of Lebanese "liberation": this is the new Lebanon. These are signs of the new Lebanon, the Lebanon that is promoted as a model of "freedom" and "independence" by Lebanonese nationalists and by Bush's advocates. RPGs and other not-light weapons were used in those clashes in Ta`mir near Sidon. MP Usamah Sa`d (one of the few members of parliament that I respect, and who managed the great defeat of the Hariri list in the municipal elections in Sidon in 2004) said that a new group in Sidon has been receiving weapons from Hariri apparatus in Beirut (he did not use that phrase, but I know the code language of Usamah).
