    spent last 3 days figuring out lebanese politics. this is my fourth attempt, it’s an unmitigated civil war with at least 4 sides that in some forms is still ongoing and has been for almost 60 years. every single time you look up any atrocity it gets worse and there are at least two more layers of revenge. there’s everything, remnants of colonialism, cold war era proxy conflicts, military interventions by syria and israel and covertly by everyone else, every party has a militia, seats in parliament are divided by religion according to results of 1932 census, nobody wants a newer one because it risks massive sectarian instability
