M: Hi. What’s happening in beirut?
Y: there was shooting at tariq il jdeedeh. we didn’t hear anything
M: I heard it was a bomb
Y: like a car bomb?
M: I dunno
Y: Wait i’m reading something. People are saying there’s an explosion at verdun
M: can you hear anything from your house?
Y: No. Fuck this shit
M: Do u think it will last?
Y: I don’t know. It could
M: I don’t think it will
Y: It’s directly linked to what’s happening in syria. I think the gulfies are trying to pressure the current government. One thing about war is that drugs would be available for cheap.
M: there you go, glass half full!
Y: probably a good time to start a small investment too. At least it will be safer
M: what will? what are you talking about? drugs will be safer?
Y: The chances to get arrested will be smaller
M: why because they have bigger problems?
Y: yes, and because they will not inspire fear anymore
M: Who, drug dealers or general security? Are you in war mode now? Is that what’s happening?
Y: Security forces will not be scary anymore
M: Won’t they be more scary because there’s a war?
M: You just said no
Y: So the fighting in tareeq il jdideh between mustaqbal and some party called al tayyar arabi. a pro-syrian ex-mustaqbal guy. Shaker al Birjawi
M: What do you know about him?
Y: Nothing. haven’t hear of him before. I would love some soujouk now
