Aoun losing popularity among Christians

When even L'Orient-Le Jour starts making fun of the blind ambition of Michel Aoun, things don't look good. Then again, his call for demonstrations outside the seat of the Patriarch in Bkirki didn't go down too well with many Maronites.

Aoun: "I don't see any other chef but me
And I don't see any other president but me
And I don't see any other reference than me
And I don't see anyone, either in front of me or behind me"

with Samir Geagea and Amin Gemayel looking puzzled.
