Lebanon belongs to Lebanese only & get that through your head.

but I was being sarcastic in reply to your loaded comment, which only sees Iran or Syria as Lebanons problem.

I will agree with you on those two when you include others who are worse..

but your paid to push loaded comments regarding a certain paid agenda....when you fail to mention all the culprits, it reeks of propaganda
