Invade Lebanon?

Filed under: — Different River @ 6:57 pm

Lebanese are demonstrating against the Syrian occupation of their country, and at least one leader called for an American invasion of Lebanon.

“Syria out. Syria out,” they shouted as Arabic pop music blared, amid calls for a “peaceful intifada” or “uprising” against a government that was put into place and remains controlled by neighboring Syria.

“We are with the Muslims, the Druze, together for a free Lebanon,” said one member of a Christian militia. “Tell America we are waiting for them to invade, all of us.”
