Bekaa Army Action: Let's Hope it's Serious

This short post is an update and a follow-up on the previous post, Fun with Jund el Sham.

I hope the Lebanese government and Lebanese army are DEAD SERIOUS (pun intended) about the recent developments in the Bekaa valley, near the Syrian border. It is very important that a CLEAR message is sent especially since Ahmed Jibreel (a Palestinian puppet of Syria) is involved. Jibreel, who is cited as a potential accomplice in the UN Mehlis report, has the gall to make daily declarations criticizing and almost threatening Lebanese officials. He also thinks smuggling arms into Lebanon, and carrying them around (in and outside Palestinians camps) is OK. The arrogance of this (non-Lebanese) creep in defying the Lebanese State is outrageous.

An authority which ignores threats to itself, is only undermining itself, and can expect more of the same, and worse of the same.

The Bekaa situation : A topographer of the Lebanese army, Mohamed Ismail (RIP), was killed two days ago, near the Syrian border. The army is apparently trying to get the killer. Syrian dog Jibreel (PFLP-GC), who is apparently involved again, and his men are surrounded. Jibreel says "there can't be a dialogue between us with a gun pointed to our head." Good. Very good. Excellent. There is a time for dialogue, and there is a time for force.

NO DIALOGUE NEEDED HERE.

    Storm the camp and kill every last son of a dog there. Hang a piece of Jibreel at the entrance to each of the other camps. That's all I have to say about that.

    Tempest, there's civilian in these camps, including Lebanese civilians (unless you're talking about the military bases of PFLP).

    The "bases" in the Bekaa' Valley (Sultan Yacob, Yanta, Helwa) are military bases not camps. They are no civilans there and they are used to:
    - train Palestinian and non-Palestinian fighters (kurds, Erterians, Ethiopians, and others)
    - play a role of stopping any Israeli invasion if Israel decided to threaten Damascaus through Lebanon. Actually there was a tank battle in that area and Israel lost everal tanks there.
    - protect smugglers to and from Syria (MONEY!!!)
    - make facts on the ground so in the future Syria could use these facts to say that this land is Syrian (although now they say all Lebanon is Syrian!)
