4:45pm Central News Agency: STL Prosecutor Bellemare handed on Monday Pre-Trial Judge Fransen the indictment in the investigation into the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri.

Now they say about 6-10 weeks before any public indictment.

Shatah: March 14 Not Likely to Join Cabinet Headed by Anyone other than Hariri

How democratic of them. Don't like the outcome of elections? Just boycott the government! Yeah, real freaking democratic, right there. Guess what March 14 coalition, you don't have the majority of MPs. Now you had power because of a coalition, and now you lost it. That's democracy.

And the west MSM are saying that Hezbollah are the ones trying to take power unconstitutionally! HA!

Aren't both sides doing the same thing basically? Hezbollah quit the government and removed Hariri and won't come back unless their demands are met, and the other side won't come back until *their* demands are met, which are the return of Hariri...

At the end of the day the only ones getting hurt by all this are the Lebanese people, who have to suffer due to their leaders' being douchbags...

I am Lebanese, and I say good riddance to our government. They were all corrupt, with no intention of doing their job, which is helping the people themselves. Education, food, and the life in general costs too much. Any road that isn't in downtown Beirut is filled with holes dating from the civil war. A starting engineer makes 1000$ a month for heaven's sake! And trust me, that is not enough in Lebanon, especially if you have a family to feed. My sister who studies at university needs 600$ a month, of it 200$ on transportation ALONE!

Beirut may look nice after the restoration by Hariri Sr, but have our politicians ever walked in the poor areas? Hell, it is not uncommon to find unfortunate beggars asking for a dollar or two just so they can live, near the supposedly rich areas.

We need a government that is capable of restoring Lebanon to what it was before the civil war, not one that feeds on the misery of the people. Hariri Jr is not up to the task, he has been a useless prime minister.
