BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took the opportunity on Wednesday to blame Iran for the issues in both Iraq and Lebanon.

The Iraqi and Lebanese people want their countries back. They are discovering that the Iranian regime’s top export is corruption, badly disguised as revolution. Iraq and Lebanon deserve to set their own courses free from @khamenei_ir‘s meddling.”

Pompeo, who is one of the Trump administration’s biggest war hawks, has repeatedly blamed Iran for the issues in the Middle East, including their roles in the Yemeni and Syrian wars.

I dont think Pompeo is correct. Those many demonstaters dont care in religion but about corruption and none jobs are created. “Against Iran” only tell the Govement by coinsidence is a 100% shiite. They have elected it, but it unfortunatly again has shown the problems are very international and classic and bad omen anywhere. I am sure the uprise making the uprise grow just after Saddams was knocked out was a kind of same things. Those many Sunnis should have been given jobs right away and many even remain organised in building contruction groups having at least food and clothe… Read more »

And he’s absolutely right! Moreover, there is no “revolution” with an ideology from the middle-ages which is even more fascist than Mussolini, the inventor of fascism, was! Revolution can’t be backwardist! Lebanon won’t live in peace until it got rid from Hellbollah. The war nasrallah started in 2006 ended with Lebanon losing 20% of its economy, not speaking about more than 2000 fatalities. Let’s be clear, someone like nasrallah who publicly pledged allegiance to khamenei while UN Tribunal has PROVEN that he ordered the murder of late Lebanese PM Hariri, well, such person correspond to a word in any dictionary…… Read more »

Epidemics like cholera if not the plague may not be very far…
A potent symbol of the dysfunctional, sect-based politics that plague the small, crowded country of Lebanon

Most of You muslims cant even read about Islam and use analfabetic old traditionionel men as source copied from analfabetic ancisters of You.

And it says to KILL the infidels, in other terms, those who feed them. Koran should be banned as it incites murders and sectarian violence.

Easy and cheep argumentation. Corruption and unimplyment unfortunatly is a very international thing as well as bureaucrasy, if none are able to lower it as every day hard work.
