Aoun: Integrate Lebanon into Hizballah

Naharnet reports:
Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun has proposed a defense strategy blueprint suggesting changing the whole of Lebanon into a resisting community…

…The daily al-Akhbar said Aoun's blueprint focuses on two main headlines: Collective resistance and defining threats that the Lebanese should be ready to confront.

Collective resistance, according to Aoun, means that the defense strategy should be a "bastion" at the economic, political, military and educational levels, noting the defense strategy is "not only related to the topic of resistance, but also includes all issues that should be settled to launch state construction and reform," according to al-Akhbar.

The only threat to Lebanon, according to Aoun's blueprint, is the "external threat," the report said, noting that it specifically mentioned Israeli aggressions and the "Palestinian topic manipulated by external sides targeting Lebanon's security."

Al-Akhbar quoted a source who had participated in the Conference on National Dialogue as saying Aoun's blueprint "did not mention Hizbullah weapons as such, but it called for resistance-army integration."
Other leaks on Aoun’s proposal came from MP Michel el Murr, who noted that it would place resistance groups in all of the country’s towns, cities, and villages. According to the Naharnet, M14 sources who received copies of the document described it as "catastrophic," while Murr was reported to have claimed that "it would lead to chaos".
