luv2earn: "And, if you had any Lebanese friends, you would know that. Syria was called in to help and Lebanon overwhelmingly supported a pro-Syria stance in a recent vote."

I DO have Lebanese friends. I KNOW that, when no Arab state wanted the Palestinians that Syria FORCE Lebenon to accept them at the pont of a sword (take them or our military will MAKE you take them). At that time the only military Lebenon had was its police force and it acceeded to Syria's demand.

Until that time, Lebenon had a wonderful, working government with a Christian President, a Druze in charge of one house and a Moslem in charge of the other.

Worked fine until they were required to accept something like 3 million refugeese. The Palestinians were who actually started the Lebaneese Civil War. Finally the Syrian Army had to come in to settle it down.

Lebenon NEVER had a problem with Israel until there were all these Palestinian refugeese on the border, making attacks across the border.

luv2earn: "And that's not bashing since you are basically calling me a liar."

Where did I call you a liar? I asled a question. You gave a defensive response without an answer. So, I said: "But, i guess you don't."

Saying that you haven't shown me that you are correct is NOT calling you a liar.
