Why isn't there a single Lebanese politician -like for example, the other imbecile "leading" the March 14 dinosaurs, Saad Hariri) who stands up and tells his people once and for all that the solution to Lebanon's 50-year old problem is for Lebanon to NEGOTIATE AND MAKE PEACE WITH ISRAEL, like civilized people and countries do, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE MOTHERFUCKER BASHAR ASSAD IN FILTHY SYRIA THINKS, and just like every other fucking Arab country from Jordan, Egypt, Palestine and down... WHY DO THE POLITICIANS OF LEBANON INSIST ON LIBERATING PALESTINE WITH THEIR OWN PEOPLE'S BLOOD while all the other Arabs are chummy with Israel? The only explanation is that LEBANESE POLITICIANS ARE HYPOCRITES AND COWARDS who are terrified of what Syria might do to them. Meanwhile, the Syrian tyrant negotiates at will, directly and indirectly, with Israel, while he forbids the Lebanese politicians from doing the same. WHAT FUCKING SOVEREIGNTY AND INDEPENDENCE ARE THESE??? CAN SAAD STUPID HARIRI TELL US WHY HE DOES NOT HAVE THE BALLS TO TELL THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER????
MORE WIKILEAKS cables will be posted here.... all the "liberators" and "liberationists" like Aoun, Siniora.... they all wish Hezbollah gone, but they are cowards who kiss the hands of those murdering their people and ruining their country, and they all cling to power like leaches, like beggars who want this or that ministry so they can steal and line their pockets.
At the height of the Second Lebanon War, Lebanon's defense minister told the US ambassador that the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) had seized a shipment of rockets destined for Hezbollah, according to a leaked US State Department cable, furnished by WikiLeaks and published by the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar on Sunday.
'Lebanese army seized Hezbollah rockets in 2nd Lebanon War'
According to the cable, Defense Minister Elias Murr, in a meeting with US Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman, claimed that during the first week of August 2006, the LAF intercepted and seized a container of rockets bound for Hezbollah. If true, the act would represent an intriguing instance of the LAF actively restraining and preventing the Iranian-backed Hezbollah guerrillas from resupplying arms in wartime.
Earlier in the meeting, the Lebanese defense minister said he believed Syria had been able to resupply Hezbollah with 2,500 rockets before Israel destroyed supply roads linking Syria and Lebanon.
Discussing the possibility that the war would escalate further, Murr told Feltman that he did not believe Hezbollah would follow through on threats to attack Tel Aviv. He said that the order for such an escalation would need to come from Tehran.
In order for that to happen, he explained, Israel would have to strike downtown Beirut, which he didn¹t believe would happen. He said that the only way the IDF would strike the center of Lebanon's capital was if Hezbollah moved rocket launchers there, something he dismissed as "impossible," saying, "I have too many soldiers there." During the 34-day war against Hezbollah, Israel did attack infrastructure targets in the Beirut area.
Addressing the then-impending cease fire, Murr told the US ambassador that the LAF would be willing to actively confront Hezbollah elements in southern Lebanon.
According to the American ambassador, "Murr stated clearly that the LAF was prepared to hit back at Hezbollah if they attempted to fire at Israel or tried to draw Israeli fire by placing launchers near to LAF positions." Asked by Feltman if he believed Hezbollah would accept an LAF presence in the south of the country, the Lebanese defense minister said, "Let them play with the Lebanese army. When we're in the South, anyone who moves, we'll shoot at. No joke." In order to prevent further Hezbollah rearming, Murr supported the idea of UNIFIL or other United Nations forces deploying at Lebanese air and sea ports, "to reassure the Israelis that Hezbollah will not be resupplied." The meeting between Murr and Feltman took place shortly before a Lebanese cabinet session, which approved the deployment of 15,000 LAF troops in southern Lebanon under a cease-fire that would only later materialize as part of UNSC Resolution 1701.
