    If they all die of starvation, at least no more coronavirus deaths. The doctors, scientists, and politicians will be happy.

    Hezbollah you are anti-lebanese . You are the enemy of the lebanese people. Move out of lebanon asap and go to your daddy Iran. Otherwise we will take you out by force.

    In the 50s & 60s Lebanon was functional and prosperous. Beirut was a tourist destination and financial capital, nicknamed "the Paris of the Middle East". In 1970 the PLO were expelled from Jordon for agitating and set up shop in Lebanon. By 1975 civil war started and raged in Lebanon for 20 years and now it is no better than Gaza or Syria.

    China should write-off any debs that countries have with them and/or provide reparations for crippling the worldwide economy. . . . . . and then countries should stop trading with them.

    Those soldiers have also had their wages cut by the loss of value in the lebanese pound
    They too do not have food to eat
    Thats why they are not fighting back….
    other rich nations or wealthy people should come together and make a plan of reform in which they will have ownership of the government

    Remember a large part of the blame needs to be put on the armed forces who do not stand up for the people but instead protect their corrupt government.

    Goverments were served by the people instead of serving the people. Confusio has good ideas of how a goverment should be, but now all of them rely on cohersive force. War is the only output.

    This will happen in American cities after Trump wins in November. People will be angry, poor, without family networks, and with nothing to lose.
