what are armenians doing in lebanon i thought they all left that region and fleed either to aermenia or south america
There are many of them in Lebanon. I guess their ancestors fled Turkey and settled there.

this kinda seems fishy to me that a warehouse containing explosives from 2014 would just go off after 6 years of just sitting there. tensions were already high against the government- maybe someones trying to destabilize Lebanon, and of course you already have a scapegoat-the port officials.

through some digging i've found out that Lebanon is the centre ground in the middle east and irans been steadily encroaching this place for years-hezbollah. and of course the first guy to come to Lebanons aid is Macron-this guy still has a colonialist mentality, perhaps to leverage the lebanese government through aid

who knows tho, im not buying this bullshit story:shaq:

36 countries and international organizations pledged $298 millions in aid to Lebanon after France organized the aid conference. Out of that sum, $117 will be used to fund health services, emergency shelter, food distribution and COVID-19 programs for 3 months.

It is a drop in a bucket and won't solve the financial and governance problems Lebanon has.

And here is a big fuck-you message from the IMF at the conference:

"The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said Lebanon must carry out urgent fiscal reforms in order to be able to tap into relief funds".

As predicted until corruption is tackled, there won't substantial assistance offered to Lebanon.

Macron aides told the Lebanese President to resign.

There are mass protests against the government, including storming the government buildings.

Turkey is trying to capitalize on the situation and offered to re-built the port of Beirut and the adjacent areas that were damaged in the blast. Since Lebanon is bankrupt, it means the Turks want to take over the port under their management.

Interesting fact more lebs live outside of Lebanon.
Just like most Irish people live outside of Ireland (especially North America and Australia - because of the British Empire).

Or most Jews still live outside of Israel (ancient wanderers)
 
Guys do you remember several months ago leaders and elites being found to have looted billions and shipped it to abroad ? The country is like Somalia with 18 religions and sects of every kind in Islam and Christians. Druz aliwies. Weird strange sects reallly really strange ones I have met. Super corrupt nations they even looted the savings of normal people in the banks bank executives. And the inflated the money supply just screw people by printing money like Zimbabwe style.

Few days ago the Lebanese protesters attacked ex PM, Hariri's convoy in Beirut. People are ready to lynch him. He better flee.

In the aftermath of the Beirut blast, the anti Hezbollah movement is picking up in Lebanon. About 27% of the Lebanese are Shiites. it is not gonna be easy to marginalize Hezbollah even if the Sunnis join the Christians. Hezbollah consists of crazy strong-headed members who understand only force.

There is no telling who is behind the blast. I doubt it is Hezbollah though.

The movement against them is picking up because the Lebanese people blaming Hezbollah for international isolation and Lebanon's currency collapse due to the Western sanctions.

Recently there were pro-Erdogan anti-Armenian protests in Lebanon organized by the Lebanese of Turkish descent.


Holy shit lebananon is fracturing even faster than Ethiopia or Somalia.

How terrible the future looks for them. How pathetic to have 40k ppl sign off their country to beg France.

:damedamn:

It is really bad. One blast made around 300,000 people homeless. Lebanon needs somewhere between $10-15 billions to right itself. Their political system based on sectarian sharing of power is the reason for the financial collapse. It is a Levantine version of Somali clan-based regions.

Lol. Big mouth Macron came in talking big and left stunned and withdrawn.

Now with the government gone, there is nobody to talk to for other countries.

It is Somalia in the 90s the Lebanese edition.

The Lebanese electricity sector racked up $42 billions in debt and that's before the blast. That's only one sector of their economy. Mind you the population of Lebanon is just 6.8 millions. Watch the video in the article below.

Lebanon has already defaulted in its sovereign loan payments. Nobody is coming to save Lebanon.

I wouldn't be surprised if some intelligent service found out about the ammonium nitrate and set it off to send Lebanon over the edge. Read this piece from Haaretz.

The convulsions in Lebanon have gradually had an effect on Israel’s approach to its neighbor, leading to a slow and cautious lowering of its state of alert along the northern border. Since the death of a Hezbollah operative in an attack attributed to the Israeli Air Force at the Damascus airport on July 21, the Israel Defense Forces has instituted an increased level of alert along the border, in light of the intelligence assessments concerning a possible Hezbollah response.

But the disaster in the port on August 4 totally changed the internal agenda in Lebanon. It seems that it will now make it harder for Hezbollah secretary general Hassan Nasrallah to justify an operation against Israel that could further complicate things.

Strangely the blast coincided with the US sanctions to squeeze the life out of the Syrian regime. Lebanon was and still is one of Assad's last outlets to conduct transactions with the world.
