"Lebanese Forces", "Kata'eb", and "FPM": Same shit, different names?

Jubilant crowds have stormed and ransacked the Baath Party offices in Zahleh and attempted to do the same with Karim Pakradouni's Katayeb branch after Syria pulled out its intelligence apparatus from the largest Catholic-populated city in the Middle East, An Nahar reported Thursday.

The two-pronged attack came amid festive celebrations in the streets of Zahleh staged by activists of Samir Geagea's Lebanese Forces, ex-President Amin Gemayel's Katayeb Corrective Movement and of Gen. Aoun's Free Patriotic Movement.


So much for the so-called graph that Mustapha of Beirut Spring has designed for us:

(Notice the distance between the FPM and "Christian Mainstream" in that graph, and then start thinking if they're that far from one another in reality, and also whether or not the "Christian Mainstream" is supposed to be placed in the middle of the graph as opposed to the far right).
