    “Carlos Ghosn, the French-Lebanese- Brazilian chief of Nissan-Renault, on Thursday shrugged off any chance of vying for the Middle Eastern nation’s presidency, saying he has “too many jobs already.”….”

      You can directly say he’s smart for refusing to even be considered.
      Ghosn runs one of the biggest companies in the world
      Why would he get involved in running the shittiest country in the world?

          And you think those wolves in the government would let him build anything or donate money without pocketing most of it. therefore we still end up with 6 hours a day of electricity. I remember Kuwait gave Lebanon almost 25 years go 300 Million to build a plant. then nothing was done.. where did that money go..

    I think its a shame that the defense of Lebanon is not in the hands of Lebanese army but in the hands of Iranian proxy’s.
