Lebanon’s Final Hour
A country that has endured wars of catastrophic violence, periods of reconstruction, resumed fighting, and ceasefires with no prospects of everlasting peace — is now gasping for its final breaths. The sight of protesters in the streets has analysts and officials worried about the potential for another civil war, a mere thirty years after the end of the previous one. Lebanon must now find a way to take back control of its future or forever be a nation locked in despair.
Now, facing the worst crisis in its recent history, the Lebanese must ask themselves how they can ensure the mistakes of the Cedar Revolution are not repeated. Lebanon’s October protest movement awakened a cross-sectarian demand for dignity in life and accountability in government.
