Till when will Hezbollah keep threatening?

BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) -- A constitutional crisis in Lebanon is threatening plans for an international tribunal to try those allegedly involved in the assassination of the country's former Prime Minister.

1- (2) Hezbollah and (3) Amal ministers resigned on Saturday the 11th. Leaving the Cabinet with 19 ministers.

2- President Emile Lahoud said Siniora's government lacks constitutional authority to make decisions

==> Wrong as the Cabinet has more than the two-thirds to vote for the decision of an international tribunal "to try those allegedly involved in the assassination of the country's former Prime Minister" (Rafic Hariri)

And my question is, why did Hezbollah and Amal ministers resign and not accept to vote for the decision of an international tribunal to condemn those who have assassinated Hariri?

Is there something they are hiding? Who are they trying to protect? Like for example, Iran and Syria?

Anyway, they did a mistake, and they obviously do not care about the well-being of Lebanon.

  3. some people are arguying this resignation is false as the way the PM is refusing it.
    They also claim this is a tactic that was set up by saudi arabia in order to satisfy all the side while adopting the UN proposition for the international court
