Sawt Beirut International’s News Bulletin – Feb. 20, 2021

A brief of tonight’s News Bulletin:

  • Bitar receives Sawan files and a document revealing the decision to introduce nitrates to the port
  • Is anyone taking action against the lack of money and the scarcity of the dollar, which threatens to halt activity in the port?
  • The Arab jihad’s corruption is killing the capital. Where does it end? It starts at the Salim Salam tunnel and ends at Jiyeh beach.

The Lebanese reality is currently controlled by two primary tracks: the first is a judicial judicial system, and the second is a governmental political system. In the first track, Judge Fadi Sawan’s transfer demonstrated that the judiciary was able to sustain the damage inflicted by the governing system. Naturally, much will be said regarding Bitar, and some of it has already begun to emerge on social media. However, it should be noted that Bitar is one of Lebanon’s greatest judges, as well as one of the most competent and daring, but this does not imply that his road will be paved.

There are numerous indicators in the government track that imply the birth of the government is no longer impossible, and that the mission government, as the French term suggests, may see the light soon, but what mission or missions are they talking about?! The months-long discussion between political parties has largely ignored the government’s economic and social goals, as well as possible solutions to the deadlock that a criminal political elite has brought us to. For months, all we’ve heard is about the number of ministers, the division of ministries, and who will be named. Is there a backwardness that surpasses this one? Is the expected mission’s government’s purpose to save the country or to destroy what’s left of it through quotas of leaders and political forces?

The corrupt political elite continues to perform poorly and to deteriorate, and the collapse of the entire corrupt system that it built is approaching rapidly, so watch.
