Shock and Awe

Last week, Lebanon was on the headlines of all major international Medias.
After the heightened tensions between the government and the opposition, the bubble finally burst.
Wanting to eliminate the former prime minister at any cost, the murderers planted an explosive device on a major road in broad daylight causing the death of 15 people and injuring around 130.

I won't comment on the political issues resulting from this infamy. Politics is a dirty game I decided not to get involved in.
Still, it makes me wonder. It is a road I take so many times... as a lot of Lebanese people do.
So no matter what your religion or political opinions were, you could have been blown away for being at the wrong place at the wrong time, as many poor people were.

What I make of all this sick situation?
I realize that Lebanon is probably not worth it after all.

To Nemesis4891 who commented on this post:

I deleted your comment because it is politically based...
1- It is a former prime minister and not a president who was assasinated.
2- Most probably, the crater was from a bomb planted under the road.
3- Your theory of guided air missile is unrealistic.
