A Laundry-List of What March 14 Did Wrong

A good piece by Hussain abdul Hussain (a self-described Shiaa-born March-14 supporter) on why March 14, 2005 did not turn out to be the beginning of spring in Lebanon. It’s too late to change my blog’s name but he makes some very good points on the failings of the political parties that comprised the March 14 gathering, the failing of the March 14 general secretariat and the overal disinterest by the movement to form a truly civil and democratic country.

Bonus: Nobel Laureate Shirine Abadi makes similar arguments for why we should stop calling the Arab uprisings the “Arab Spring”.. (Hat Tip: Mich)
