Lebanon army chief warns of “fabricated” tensions

Share:

Lebanon army commander General Jean Kahwaji warned in remarks published in As-Safir newspaper on Tuesday of fabricated tensions and said that the army will not “allow [itself] to be distracted” and will not “deviate from performing its tasks.”

“Military units are performing their tasks on different Lebanese territories, but what is suspicious are security incidents being fabricated here and there,” Kahwaji told As-Safir newspaper.

“Every time the army [addresses an incident] in one place, another incident occurs in another. It is as if there is a maestro secretly [making the situation go as such]. The aim is clear. It is to keep the army busy in marginal incidents and therefore keep the situation tense.”

He also said that protecting the country was everyone’s “responsibility,” and added that the army will strike with an iron fist anyone that attempts to prevent it from fulfilling its duties or tampers with the country’s stability and threatens citizens’ security.

      Yah dateam … sigh.  Yazidi should know that people in a democracy prefer an army controlled by the people (their politicians) rather than the type of Military that controls, for example, Egypt.
      Must be really difficult to be commander of the Leb army faced with the HUGE indecisions of a theoretical ‘parliament’ that can’t tie it’s shoe-laces most of the time, both a President and a Prime Minister (weird to have a President with a Parliament), and a batch of various thugs (shall I be kind and say groups) ‘defending’ their own bits of turf.
      To be in the LAF takes a lot of personal pride-swallowing – especially when various gangs think they can take a shot at you if you dare venture into ‘their’ zone – neatly forgetting they are supposed to be part of a whole country under ONE ‘law’. And I’m sure the commander has problems within his own ranks with the stupid thinking.
      Considering the short time the LAF has had to form some pride for Lebanon since Syria made them walk around to do only public-works as weaponless ‘boy-scouts’ I’m amazed they do as well as they do.
      MANY CITIZENS DO KNOW which ‘army’ they most get equal respect from … and we have seen that they can perform when tasked to do so – by the politicians – who often ALSO don’t seem to respect them. Their ‘ineffectiveness’ is one of those myths which will go on and on, unfortunately, with statements like yazidi makes.
      Some of us understand what Syria did to Lebanon …..
