Commenting on the burlesque squabble of the members of the Troika over the crucial social problems facing the country, the Guardians of the Cedars - National Lebanese Movement issued the following communiqué:
Before the Lebanese could regain their composure from the mawkish parody which the Taef gang presented them, they found themselves confronted with a new play starring the same actors, featuring, as always, their concern with the citizen's interests and the factors of their endurance. Their concern is so great as to lead to a travesty brawl between two heads of the Troika. The idea was to impress the existence of contentions of a personal not a national character, requiring the intervention of the "Sister's" maestro of Foreign Affairs in order to settle the dispute, because, they say, the Region is passing through critical times that need the closest harmony between Lebanon and Syria, lest the "strategic" position of the two States falls to pieces.
But the truth is that the Lebanese people, despite their hunger, have no stomach for the cock-and-bull story of the Taef gang or for their don quixotic acts. Indeed, their political perception has become sufficiently mature to realize that everything they undertake is done with the object of diverting their attention from their right to a decent life. The people are aware, on the contrary that they are in dire need to reinforce and brace their social hardness against the fierce "Sisterly" attacks and the voracity of her local stooges whom she forcibly invested to rule upon them and administer their destiny.
Moreover, the Lebanese people under the rule of the Taef gang, realize that any dispute or accord between the Troika tails will never be to their advantage, because those who, jointly or severally, gnashed away at their livelihood through seven long years, will not suddenly metamorphose into compassionate altruists. Consequently, the party of the Guardians of the Cedars asserts that a regime so totally prone to vassalage, buffoonery, baseness and greed, will soon fall before the people whose dignified suffering will vanquish the greed of the despots.
At the service of Lebanon,
