Saad: Please stand up to those Houthies, the ones who killed your father and many other politicians and journalists. Don't let the foreign mercenary traitors hold the country and the presidency hostage to the will of the ayatollah.

This is what brave men are made of, good fortune belongs to the brave. May divinity protect him, and this is one great poke in the eyes of those who kept calling him a wimp, well, here we are, the leader of M14 in his native soil, in his native land to show that great leaders can live above ground and not hidden underground. That is why I loved Bachir, (Allah yer7amak ya Bach), Bachir was always there, on the ground, leading us all into battle. I can also say the very same of Geagea, true leaders don't hide, true leaders head their forces, never behind but always in front. Saad Hariri has shown he too has the stuff.

True that Al Finique, Saad is definitely coming out of age in politics. Saad is certainly a savvy person in the world of economics, but in politics he found out that the game rules are vastly different. On top of his need to be tough, he needs to be less trusting too, Sayed Hassan has pulled the rug from under his feet quite a few times, that now must not happen ever again. It's a good thing that Geagea is here to caution him.

People i salute Saad Harriri for his persistence in trying to bring whoever committed this murder and these murders to justice , But i am still to be convinced that hezbollah is guilty , not saying they are'nt but that why we have courts and judges that look at facts and evidence not speculation and hearsay so lets wait for the conclusion of the trial the pass judgement . Now i would like to ask the supporters of the resistance do we still need a resistance considering israel is back on its borders all but "shebaa farms " which are disputed should'nt the resistance now form a national coalition goverment .
