Andre Vitchec (above) picks up on Lebanon’s mess, the meddling of other states and of course the Kingdom that invested so much in Hariri and his Future Party to undermine Hezbullah’s Hassan Nasrallah.
The bankrolling couldn’t outdo Nasrallah’s strategic wisdom and his loyalty to his country puts Hariri to shame and where he should be – nowhere, despite his lear jet liaisons. So the Saudi’s pulled the pin and used the excuse about their beloved cocaine snorting prince….
Prince Abdel Mohsen bin Walid bin Abdulaziz
who swore his 40 suitcases of Captagon were for personal use (well not really, would you believe gifts?) and is now rightly languishing in a Lebanese gaol.
And as Vitchec warns things look like getting worse for Lebanon.
“In the last decades, Lebanon has already suffered immensely. This time, if the West and its allies do not change their minds, it may soon cease to exist altogether. It is becoming obvious that in order to survive, it would have to forge much closer ties with the Syrian government, as well as with Iran, Russia and China.”
And I have to get these guys in just because I love the photo..they are demonstrating against corruption.
