A National Day of Mourning & An Investigation Into the 2014 Events

The DNA assessments on Wednesday verified that the stays discovered close to the Lebanese-Syrian border belong to the lacking military males and a nationwide day of mourning was declared on Friday. The kinfolk of the slain servicemen have been knowledgeable of the outcomes throughout a close-door assembly by the Lebanese military chief Common Joseph Aoun.

For the time being, President Aoun has known as on the authorities to open an investigation into the 2014 abduction of Lebanese troopers by terrorist teams “out of respect for fact as a human worth, for the martyrdom of the martyrs and for the plight of their households, and to forestall accusations in opposition to any harmless particular person over main nationwide points that focused our armed forces and bloodied the hearts of the Lebanese”.

Calling for an investigation is a daring transfer however will justice be served? Will those that facilitated the work of terrorists and stopped the military from releasing the troopers be put in jail? Are we going to arrest the MPs and Sheikhs who have been defending terrorists and criminals in opposition to the military?

I actually doubt it. I actually need to imagine a critical investigation shall be performed however given what number of events are concerned instantly or not directly, this isn’t getting wherever and assuming it did, these affected will begin asking for additional investigations into different incidents and it could flip into an unsightly political/electoral battle that can ultimately be settled behind closed doorways.

I’m certain the households of the martyred Lebanese troopers are conscious of that they usually simply need their sons to be remembered because the heroes they have been. Some dad and mom are refusing to depart their tents in Beirut till the reality is unveiled, however the Lebanese state is just not able to deal with the reality.

Allow us to all pay them homage on Friday and hope that we gained’t need to cope with such conditions once more.
