It's always a good idea to get out of your own way if you want to reach your stated goals.Unfortunately, Bassil is firing blindly at the very U.N. agencies that are endeavoring to improve conditions for this country and its guests.Moreover these agencies represent some 200 countries, including those that recently pledged $11 billion to help Lebanon address its ailments. With the lives of more than a million refugees at stake, not to mention Lebanon's own well-being, this is not a trivial matter that is fodder for politicizing, and the targeted agencies are not obliged to suffer egotists.
