Clinton: Decisions should be made by the Lebanese people

Share:

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters on Thursday: “The United States stands ready to help Lebanon out of its ongoing political impasse, but it is ultimately up to Beirut to resolve the crisis.”

In response to a question about international mediation efforts following the collapse of Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s government, Clinton said: “We stand ready, as do many others in the region and beyond, to be of assistance,” Clinton said.

But she added, “any decision will have to be made by the Lebanese people.”

In response to a question about the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) indictment that was issued on Monday Clinton said:

“We strongly support the ongoing work of the tribunal and believe that it is in the long-term interest of Lebanon to end impunity for political killing. ”

According to political observers, many in the March 14 alliance are unhappy with the level of US support ..while Iran is funding and arming Hezbollah to the teeth, the US offers words but no action…. The observers believe if the US wants to really help its Lebanese friends it should pressure Israel to pull out of the occupied Lebanese territories …Shebaa and Kfar Shouba then Hezbollah cannot have any more excuses to carry arms and intimidate the Lebanese people . One observer told Ya Libnan…”The Lebanese want action and are tired of the talk and promises they have been hearing ….talk is cheap he said’.

The observer added : Clinton’s statement that any decision will have to be made by the Lebanese people is nonsense…the decisions are not being made by the Lebanese people …the decisions are being made by the guns and their suppliers in Iran and Syria .

      talk is not cheap, it’s free….
      you said: “All they care about is sex, alcohol and sports”… let’s assume this is a true representation of the American people, I will not argue with you about this eventhough I think you are dead wrong.so for the sake of argument, let’s both assume what you said to be true.
      think about it, if Lebanese people cared more about “sex, alcohol and sports” than politics, then political situations wouldnt turn so volatile so quickly, everyone is afraid of the fight going to the street, meanwhile we sit in our bleachers chearing our “political” team on …. war is in our blood, every argument we take to the streets, everyone is on a hairline trigger. dont you think there are hizbilkhara memebers and followers who are aching to start the fight? and dont you think there are those who support harriri who are also aching to start the fight? let’s not kid ourselves, the fight will go down because people want to be entertained. sickness if you ask me.

    3. As a Lebanese-American, all we Americans may care about is sex, alcohol, and sports. What is wrong with those things? They are a lot better than what only the majority of Lebanese in Lebanon care about – that being war and fighting. Lebanon needs chemotherapy to rid itself of the cancer in the country that is hezbollah!

  6. Sorry to say this but Clinton and her clan (US leaders) are all talk and no action. UNLESS it comes to something within the US’s direct interests…they will do nothing but talk out of their asses! The US has gone downhill since Reagan and leadership corrupt like all others. However, today and thanks to efficient technology (information highway), everyone is able to read through these crooked politicians….whether it be Washington or Lebanon. They can all go to hell because none of them truly care about their people but rather their personal benefit.
