How much money did you spend since 2003 into operations over here and what do you actually have achieved?
You've even become counter-productive for allies like Hariri.
Lebanon is a nation on the road to theocracy calling itself a democracy just like Turkey, who cares what it believes. I would rather give my money to the government or a corporation, than to a pack of pedophile mullah's that hate everyone that isn't Muslim.
PS: Just because you trade with nations doesn't mean you have to like them, so what if Islamic nations have money, it is kept in the hands of a wealthy religious elite, the common people remain poor, a policy Hamas and Fatah practice to such effect in 'Palestine', or closer to you:
It's their nation, it's off course important what they believe.
It is also important, that the leaders represent the will of their people. That is probably the reason why the likes of Hariri are shying away from too much visible US-connection.
Riyadh has abandoned mediation efforts to end the political crisis in Lebanon
BBC News - Hariri tribunal: Saudi Arabia quits Lebanon mediation
Lebanon is Iran #2, who gives a damn what they think.
some things never change. thx for the link.
I'm glad I want the puppet government to fall and have Hezbollah take over! It much more difficult running a country with social, economy, educational, welfare, waste management etc services than it is to run a terrorist organization that only needs to plan the next place to kill innocent lives.
Another reason is when the next Lebanon-Israeli War takes place, they will have more identifiable targets! The government and military installations of the Lebanese govenment. They won't be fighting a terrorist group within a country, they will be fighting the Lebanese goverment! Much different!
hummmm, first I'd say;
a corrupt(ed) negotiation process, lack of historical perspective, UBER-partisanship ala the UN and its coterie of NGO's and American presidential ineptitude got us here all-together.
( and I include Republican as well as Democrat pres.'s)
They say the Chicago Way is corruption and backdoor deals.
The Muslim Way is just overthrow and kill the opposition. This shouldn't be shocking to anyone. Next to get overthrown? Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Iran or heck even Turkey!
