In Flames

To put the following pictures in context, read this

 A Aoun supporter does what Aoun supporters do best: Posing!

 

 Start me a little fire with some tires..

 

 …so that we can look cool jumping over it. "Told you it would look gangsta!"

 

 " As protest for not having jobs, we are going to prevent anyone else from going to theirs."

 

A Hezbollah supporter, doing his part to further ruin Lebanon!

 

 Pro- and anti-Government supporters start clashing by throwing rocks at each other…

 

 ..so the army arrives to keep people apart…

 

 ..and while it tries to do the best job it can..

 

 ..the lebanese people continued to fight each other.

 

 @ the Rafiq Harriri airport: The Inevitable conclusion!

I can find no better image representing the mindset of the lebanese "opposition" than this guy, using his hand to point " we are number one", with all the fire, smoke and ruins behind him, as if saying "May it all burn, as long as we get to rule!" 

Truly, their vision for Lebanon!

  1. I wish I was surprised, but I am not. This is a long time in the making.

    You are right, SM, the ideology is one of destruction, not creation.

    The good Lebanese people want to create a functioning government and society, and they are hated for it. It is heartbreaking to watch. I do not know what the answer to this is…it seems like the destruction of what was a beautiful possibility in Lebanon is inevitable.

  2. “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.” -John Milton. Some people are taking that way too seriously and trying to create Hell on Earth. And we know which Master they truly serve.

  3. “…U.S.-backed Prime Minister Fuad Saniora…”

    The media is actively trying to get him killed apprently. He’s the legitimate elected leader of Lebanon.

  4. Summer: We are all Hezbollah now!
    Winter: F*ck Hezbollah

    “Resistance” is so much sexier against those gosh darn Jews.

  5. Good analysis of the situation. I hate to see Lebanese citzens against each other. This is truly destructive.

  6. Fucking horrible, may God help Lebanon get back on its feet from these thugs.

  7. Well this isn’t surprising at all. Saw it coming when Hezbollah tried to imitate the Mexicans with the whole ‘non-violent’ civil disobedience thing. PM Siniora and company should have had the cajones following the Isreali-Hezbollah conflict, to reign in and disarm them then. Poor Lebanon.

  8. Poor Lebanon, indeed, and stupid Lebanese “street”. Isn’t the conference going to take place this week where Lebanon was supposed to receive 9 billions for economic aid? Very inviting for investors.

  9. Jason, you’re wrong. Hezbollah hasn’t been disarmed, because Hezbollah can’t be disarmed, without taking the weapons off of their dead bodies. And nobody wants to do that.

    In-Flames is a nice band, no related to Lebanon in any way…

    Or run, as far as you can
    I’m trying to hold on to what I believe in,
    But my heart is in a coma!

    Aggression.
    Attention.

  11. Total freaks…

    Hezbollah
    attacks Israel
    - Lebanon at war

  12. The first three pictures and your comments over them are hilarious.

  13. “Jason, you’re wrong. Hezbollah hasn’t been disarmed, because Hezbollah can’t be disarmed, without taking the weapons off of their dead bodies. And nobody wants to do that.”

    The other sects would like to do that actually. The problem is that if we tried to do that, the dead bodies might not be those of Hezbollah’s supporters.

  14. Vox, ever wondered on whose side the dead bodies might be if Hezbollah does not get stopped?

  15. BrooklynJon says:

    Vox,

    That’s why Lebanon badly needed Israel to do its dirty work. It’s a pity, for the sake of the peace lovng Lebanese, that Israel was stopped before it completed the job.

  16. “Jason, you’re wrong. Hezbollah hasn’t been disarmed, because Hezbollah can’t be disarmed, without taking the weapons off of their dead bodies. And nobody wants to do that. ”

    Lots want to do it, but at Hebzbollah’s weakest point, at the tail end and immediately after the conflict, they didn’t. Espousing unity to hide their fear, they dug the hole they now find themselves in. If Sinoria had pushed for it, and asked for UN help in implementing disarmament, it might have been possible in September. But now, the only way is capitulate or civil war.

  17. Fuad Soniora is a stooge. As CNN says “the US backed lebanese Prime Minister…”

    This guy should make peace with Hizbollah who represents resistance against the zionists.

  18. Dunno. That zionist word seems to have lost all meaning. Even ‘seen’ a Palestinian called one… I mean c’mon.
