SNAP SNAP SNAP: State of Emergency declared in Lebanon

November 23rd, 2007 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Outgoing Lebanese President Emile Lahoud has declared a state of emergency, following the failure of the country’s politicians to choose a successor.

This means that the army, led by Michel Suleiman, has taken control of ALL security agencies – including those currently run by the Government.

No-one predicted this scenario. What it essentially means is the (supposedly) neutral military is now running the country, because the Government has failed to do so.

    Lets get one thing straight.

    It is not a state of emergency.
    General Sleiman has stated he will still take orders from the government of Sinioura..

    Sorry your faggoty president didnt get his way..

    Adios amigos…

    The last remnants of syrian scum has finally left the building…

    Lahoud hasnt been taking seriously by the Lebanese and by the rest of the world for the last 3 years..
    Except of course by ASSAD who surprise surprise helped in extending his mandate.
    He was insignificant….

    About time he left….
