with half of islamic resistance in syria and the other half in the smuggling game hezbollah is no match for the phalange and their zionist allies. nasrallah might have screwed this one up. we might see lebanon go back to the way it was in the 70's and 80's.

Well, we unnecessarily invaded Iraq....destroying their infrastructure which by the way had the best educational performance in the region....innocent people were killed, left homeless and on their own except for us to teach the existing government to fight for what was lost. I do not condone any dictators.....especially the one in Syria......he, like Sadamn, is nothing but a power-seeking murderer... innocent people have suffered greatly due to these self-serving and insecure dictators and unfortunately, terrorists prey on the most vulnerable and the unstability of all countries involved. Thanks Cal for sharing.

The Lebanon used to be the most westernized country in the region but due to religious conflict and Islamic terrorists it has been reduced to a war zone.

Perhaps these nations need to sort out their own mess instead of the west... they need to look into their own situations and see where they are going wrong...
