AP,

I’m no lawyer, but I believe the phrase you’re looking for is “statute of limitations”.

Certain crimes have statutes of limitations. One that immediately comes to mind is rape, for example. A rape victim cannot prosecute a case against his or her rapist more than a certain amount of years after the crime has supposedly taken place. I don’t know what the exact rationale for this is, but I think it has to do with the strength of witness testimony and the effect that time has on a person’s memory.

But you’d be surprised how many crimes there are out there for which the statutes of limitations never expire. I’m pretty sure that murder falls in that category. Haven’t you ever heard of cold cases that suddenly warm up even decades after the fact when new leads come in, seemingly from nowhere? I think the police are even obligated to continue investigating under these circumstances.

I’m not following this STL case too closely at all, but I would imagine that if the accused are successfully prosecuted even in absentia, then a sealed arrest warrant can be issued that will essentially last forever. Lebanon doesn’t even need to apprehend the suspects. It could be 30 years in the future, one of them could be traveling through a European (or otherwise affiliated) airport, and he could be arrested right there and then, and he’ll be in the international detention/prison system for quite a while thereafter.

I do agree with you however that there’s something quite grotesque about spending all this time and money trying to identify Rafik Hariri’s murderers in Lebanon, while simultaneously making the argument that you can’t continue to count the dead in next-door Syria because it’s too dangerous to do so! It’s so abhorrently screwed up! But alas, I don’t want to hammer this point too aggressively because the last thing I want is for Lebanon to get sucked into the horrible, Syrian quagmire or for the Lebanese to bear an undue, sacrificial burden to solve their region’s largest and most intractable problems!

The Special Tribunal for Lebanon is the only hope Lebanon has for finding out the truth. Does anyone else around here have an alternative way? I say let the bash the STL ground move to Tehran & leave us in peace.”

Easier said than done. How many divisions have you got?

How many does the STL have?

How many does Hariri have?

Short of that, I don’t see anyone going to Tehran.

Most likely you’ll end up applying for immigration somewhere in the world, if you haven’t already.

Danny,

I applaud your optimism. I guess I gave up on ME optimism a long time ago. I hope your right and I’m wrong.

Mossad angle? Why would the GOI want to knock off Hariri? When has the GOI worked with the Hezbos and Assad? Afraid? Pul-eeeeze!

AP,

Time is not important as far as it can be proven. How long did the Yugoslavia trials last?…The international community took a decision to try Hariri’s assassins. Now if you have a problem with that you will have a problem with everything. If you’d like our Wise King’s disciple can introduce you to KSA justice.

Danny,

Anyone who has committed crimes should stand trial. But 10 years after the fact? In the US, everyone has the right to a “speedy” trial, which typically can be a few.months to a year, but TEN YEARS?

I hope they find the murders of these 22 people including Hariri. But, like Jesus, there are thousands of martyrs out there who have been killed just these past few years, and their killers are still wining and dining.

If BB and/or the GOI are found targeting civilians simply because they were civilians and not military targets, they should be made to pay a heavy price.

And as you know, this is the exact “MO” of the Hamas/Hezbo/Iran/Assad “wesistance” axis we’ve all come to love and cherish.

Fusion has been dominating the music scene for quite some time and I’m glad to see that our local bands are bold enough to take a stab at this. However, such a practice resembles cooking in the sense that it’s all about feeling taste, both of which are almost entirely absent in this cover.
After listening to to three times, I reached the same conclusion: It doesn’t make me feel a single thing.
The original? Well that one is another story; that one moves you; that one makes your soul stir every single time.

But hey, I’m just one guy from the audience with potentially poor musical taste, so what do I know?

GR,
To begin with I don’t get money from anyone to post and I’ve never done paid posts and probably never will. The reason why I shared this is because Tripoli highly needs tolerance and Mikati is from there yet extremism is winning unfortunately. That’s why I said it would be interesting to see how tolerance can be promoted there specially via dialogues.

I think it’s important to distinguish politics from religious extremism as we’ve seen how easily things got solved in Tripoli as if a miracle had just happened. Moreover, I didn’t label Mikati as a moderator but I think moderates is what Lebanon needs and the likes of Mikati and Hariri disregarding my opinion are considered as such.

I have a lot of question marks regarding what’s happening in Tripoli and who’s behind everything but I am not discussing politics here. Drop me an email and I’d love to continue this talk and share my views

Mikati represents tolerance as much as my grandmother represents Chinese heritage. May i remind you that he was responsible for releasing terrorists from jail up to and including Shadi al-Mawlawi? May i also remind you that he has been bankrolling some militia commanders in Tripoli? Unless you’re getting money from him, this post is a waste of time and space.

Transvestite and transsexual mean two completely different things. Someone who has undergone sex reassignment surgery is NOT a transvestite and should be referred to by their preferred pronoun (which may be “she” in this case). A transvestite is someone who wears the clothing of the opposite sex, but still they would not identify as being the opposite sex. You can’t use the terms interchangeably for the same person.
