Rant , Who is in charge of the Lebanon ?
A significant point which seems to be overlooked in the “ blame the evil Israelis “ fest .
Lebanon is overrun with armed groups and militias , who take orders from everywhere but Beirut , Currently , Lebanon is an unwilling `host` to
3 significant groups , plus splinter cells factions and criminal gangs . The key groups are :
PPC , the popular resistance committee , with 1000 troops
Hamas , with several thousand troops .
And Hezbollah , with 600 professional soldiers , and 3000 militia
There are other minor groups , and more importantly – all have a pool of the disenfranchised to draw supporters and recruits from .
These groups owe no allegiance to Lebanon , and are certainly not acting in the best interest of the country they are using as a front line and armed
camp in their proxy war against Israel
If Iran and Syria have such support and solidarity for these groups – why do they not extend the necessary invitations and let them live on their
soil – so that when conflict comes , their territory is the front line .
Why ? because peace and stability are not in the interests of either Damascus , or Tehran .
Plus both have seen the problems Palestinian groups cause Amman . Arab hospitality ? BAH !
Lebanon needs a UN monitored ceasefire , disarmament and demilitarization of none Lebanese government troops . that is the only long term solution
which will benefit Beirut
Armed Palestinians in the Bekka valley do nothing for Lebanon , but bring strife . Return Lebanon to the Lebanese , and she will see peace .
If you allow crack dealers to squat in the basement of your house , do not be amazed when the police drug squad raids your property mob handed –
this is exactly the situation Lebanon finds herself in .
The question for the Lebanese to ask them selves right now , is why did they allow vast swathes of their country to be over run ??
Jordan successfully evicted the armed Palestinian groups after years of strife – all caused by the Palestinians . When will Lebanon realise what
needs to be done , to restore peace and order to their country once and for all ? The Palestinians need a homeland , they do not need a war . Butter ,
not bullets is what they need from Tehran
If Iran and Syria want to attack Israel , let them muster a combined army on the Golan heights and attempt an invasion , what are they scared of ??
why do they use militias in a foreign country as proxies ? that is not glorious struggle for the Palestinian cause – it is cowardly war by proxy .
