The past few years have witnessed a new profession called analysis rearing its head in Lebanon, and the craft has been proliferating at a steady pace, with the number of "analysts" in the country doubling by the month.As a matter of fact, one of the latest and increasingly frequent exercises of these Lebanese gurus is to tie important events in the country to developments in the rest of the world, with some most recently preaching that a solution to the Lebanese deadlock will have to wait until Jan. 20, 2017, the day a new president is inaugurated in the U.S.These comedians, who rattle on about their grandiose dreams and aspirations, want us to believe that the first problem that a new U.S. president will tackle is Lebanon's ills, which are going to take priority over America's domestic affairs and the multitude of economic and international issues the country has to deal with.
