I was only shooting at the enemy, I swear!

Lebanon's Central Security Council (CSC) fully banned gunfire during political, religious and social events.

Eh, should it not be banned in ALL events and at ALL times?!
One has to wonder in awe when trying to decipher how the minds of our beloved leaders function!

Useless person in power: Listen haboob, it's summer season and all and we are expecting a lot of tourists this year, could we possibly keep the gunfire to a minimum.
Useless person working for useless person in power: eh, you're right! I mean after all, we are invested in this s**t. That would not be such a bad idea after all. Let me call these guys over at CSC and I'll have them issue a statement or something. People usually buy that kinda crap. Tikram 3aynak, walaw?!



Note: BG et LZ are highly appreciative of the actions of our reformist interior minister Ziad Barood. This is by no means a scathing post on his job or performance in particular, but at the entire lifestyle of Lebanese government's "business as usual" attitude.

  1. Half-baked regulation for a half-baked country. Wasn't a permanent ban on celebratory gunfire issued last year?
