The agreement also provided for the disarmament of all national and non-national militias. All disarmed, with the exception of Shiite Hezbollah and Fatah and non-Lebanese Hamas, P.F.L.P. One hundred years after the Sykes-Picot agreement delivered the countries of the region led to a failed Ottoman empire. The new nations that emerged from this agreement had no democratic history or democratic institutions to respect the rule of law. With the exception of Lebanon, where some of its minorities had found a refugee refuge from persecution in the country and where local Lebanese fought for independence, almost bridbing Ottomnan`s rulers, to leave them in peace. Jordan is now a monarchy, but a nation divided between Jordanians and Palestinians who speak the same language and share most of their history before the Sykes-Picot agreement. But today they have nothing to do, while the Lebanese, with more than eighteen minorities, refused to hold a glue and stick and call themselves Lebanese!

The rule of law and democracy have been won in many battles.

However, the purpose of the delegated presidential powers was unclear. By transferring these powers to the cabinet, where religious parity was a formal guarantee of equality between communities, Taif also spread and spread power, making it difficult to locate and exercise. Nor was it clear who was to answer for the decisions.
This situation was compounded by several provisions of the agreement, which probably remained deliberately vague and subject to interpretation. The agreement also provided for the disarmament of all national and non-national militias.
