Bush proposal threatens Lebanon stability - Hezbollah

Hahahahahahahaha. Yup, you read that right.

BEIRUT, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Hezbollah said on Friday a proposal by U.S. President George W. Bush for Lebanon's Western-backed governing coalition to elect a new president unilaterally was a threat to the country's stability.
Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran and listed by the United States as a terrorist group, has previously warned that a unilateral move by the majority to elect a president would be tantamount to a coup.

"The American administration wants to embroil who it considers its allies in Lebanon in choices which they already know threaten stability in Lebanon, strike at national unity and spread chaos as happened in Iraq," Fadlallah said.

Hezbollah's deputy chief Naim Kassem also accused Bush of proposing the absolute majority idea "without caring about the repercussions of this issue".
