While Lebanon's trash crisis only made international news in recent months, the problem actually became subject of discussion around two years ago.Hardly had the Cabinet meeting dissolved when its ministers or their representatives began to play the hero, mincing their words trying to convince the electorate they have their interests at heart.In truth, they must know that this solution is the only one available, and without reaching it Lebanon would be staring into the unknown.Instead of lauding the plan Lebanon's leaders should lament it, because their incessant bickering has led us to a path where the solution found was nothing but the best of the worst.
