Poll: Lebanon's Best Interest in Nahr el Bared

After a week of running battles, sporadic gunfights, car bombs, artillery barrages, and incessant assaults on our country's sovereignty and national instutitutions, the government announced yesterday that they would give the Fatah al Islam terrorists holed up in the Nahr el Bared Refugee Camp until the middle of the upcoming week to surrender or die.

We start this week with a Blacksmiths of Lebanon poll asking our readers how they think this most recent crisis heaved upon us should be dealt with to best secure the country's national interests, sovereignty, and objectives.

Revisiting last week's Blacksmiths of Lebanon poll on a choice between the two worst case scenarios, as perceived by the two major factions in the country, in the upcoming Presidential Crisis (yes, we've already labelled it a Crisis because in our view, Lebanon is continuously being subjected to extreme choices which inescapably bring out a crisis), we find that approximately 9 out 10 respondents (of which there were 87) preferred to be 'burdened' with a March 14th President than endure a crippling Two Government Crisis.
