BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:05 A.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Forces, Samir Geagea, continued to attack the Syrian government from his safe quarters in Bchirri on Thursday.

Geagea claimed during a press conference that any communication with the Syrian government in Damascus should be deemed ‘prejudice’ towards one party in the ongoing conflict.

The Lebanese Forces leader also noted the absence of a ‘legitimate’ Syrian government, knowing that for any government to be legitimate, it should enjoy two main piers: internal legitimacy and external legitimacy.

Thus, Geagea considered that any communication with the Syrian government is tantamount to a prejudice towards one side over the other, saying: “if we recognize the government, then we must recognize all the Syrian groups.”

Geagea still harbors resentment for the Syrian government over his imprisonment for war crimes committed during the Lebanese Civil War, in which he carried out several massacres.

Why bothering giving air to this war criminal? Who would be interested in “his” opinion at all? Perhaps you think he is a genuine representative of a group/party?

@politika007 : ALL militia leaders did war crimes in Lebanon. This includes Hezbollah leaders. He was the only one sued and jailed, thanks to Hafez al-Assad because he was a Christian Phalanges leader. Hafez just ousted Arafat while it was PLO that started civil war in Lebanon. “Perhaps you think he is a genuine representative of a group/party?” => He’s more genuine than Nasrallah as the leader of Lebanese army.

Liked your comment, in my opinion, this is just another reason that western governments should not be trying to take sides in conflicts. There are no good options except to stay out and let the middle east figure out its own problems

He goes deeper into oblivion with every word he utters , this moron of a bootlicker. He represents only himself , ignoring the official visit paid by the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch , (Lebanon) , to President Assad in 2015, acknowledging the importance of the protection he offers to all Maronite Christians in the Levant. Assad defends legitimacy and legal order against foreign usurpers, Samir Geagea’s employers.
