Nearly nine months into Lebanon's presidential vacuum, and much of society is apparently dangerously complacent about the leadership gap, a situation which many politicians appear to be welcoming.If it were really true that these countries sought not to interfere in the presidential nomination process in Lebanon, why, then, are they discussing it so often, and making so many trips to Lebanon, trips which often coincide with other events in the region?The continued presidential vacancy is an apparent adventure in farce and renders Lebanon akin to a failed state.
