Syria? Nah. It’s the Danes
Nahr el Bared? Bombs? Destabilization? Yep, the Danes, with some help from the Aussies.
A Danish national and a man with a residence permit in Denmark are among alleged Islamic militants arrested in northern Lebanon in recent weeks, the Foreign Ministry in Copenhagen said Tuesday. (Naharnet, June 26 2007).Damn! We just lost a (tired) joke, and the Hezbollah gang just gained a (specious) argument.
Danish authorities also were investigating reports that a third man with Danish ties was arrested Sunday during fights in Tripoli between Lebanese troops and alleged Islamic extremists, Thuesen said.
In the never-ending discussion with the blind: Who’s destabilizing Lebanon? Pro-Syrians would invariably say: it’s not Syria. Opponents would respond: yeah right! It’s the Swiss or the Swedes, or some other peaceful and remote people.
No more. The damn Danes have been caught red handed, along with some Aussies too:
On Monday, Australia's foreign minister said that three Australians are among terrorists arrested after fighting against Lebanese soldiers in Tripoli.Any time now, expect Syrian attack dog Moallem or some other regime hack to issue an “I told you so” statement.
Officials in Canberra were also checking reports that two other Australians were killed in the fighting, Alexander Downer said. (Naharnet, June 26 2007).
As for me, I’m taking bets that Crocodile Dundee was not among the Aussies, and that the Nahr el Bared Danes won't have names like Lars nor Anders. Takers anyone?
