Lebanon the Teacher

Georgian Deputy Premier apparently thinks he can learn a lot from Lebanon. In a recent visit to Lebanon he says that Lebanon can teach his country a lot of lessons especially when it comes to the relations Lebanon has with its neighboring countries. You can find the article at the following link:

The idea to me sounds very funny. Lebanon teaching other countries lessons or even being an example to follow. Sure thing. In addition to exporting our best and brightest to foreign countries maybe we should also be exporting our failed models of democracy on confessional rule. Or maybe our model of co-existence and peace and love and harmony amongst all of our 18 different sects. See, we love each other so much that every couple years or so we take at each other's throats. I mean, what says I love you more than a full round of AK47 bullets. Or maybe our failed model of governance and corruption and continuous negative budget and so on and so forth.
If anything, any country seeking to learn things from Lebanon, should learn to never ever follow Lebanon's lead, especially when it comes to relations with neighboring countries.
