Senior U.S. General Concludes Visit to Lebanon


Major General Michael Langley, United States Central Command Director for Strategy, Plans, and Policy, visited Lebanon from August 15 to 18, the U.S. embassy said.

Langley is responsible for Foreign Military Sales programs for Lebanon, including the A-29 Super Tucanos aircraft, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and Cessna aircraft, the embassy said in a statement.

While in Lebanon, Langley met with the Lebanese Army Commander General Joseph Aoun.

The U.S. general also attended a dinner in honor of Lebanese officers who recently attended training in the United States. He also visited a Lebanese Army Air Force base.

The embassy statement stressed that “the U.S. government is committed to the Lebanese-American partnership and supports the Lebanese Armed Forces in their capacity as the sole defender of Lebanon.”

Thank you USA for arming our useless LAF. That’s because our army isn’t based on merit but corruption in the form of wasta. The Joseph Aoun you met is corruption personified.

The resistance prolonged the Israeli occupation, the self styled strong Christian president said so.

Most of the military and intellectual leaders of the Lebanese resistance of the Lebanese Communist party and Amal were murdered by the so called resistance.

And while the Lebanese army was expertly and professionally liberating the Jouroud, the so called resistance and the Syrian regime made an underhanded backroom deal behind the Lebanese government's back to help the terrorist escape Lebanese justice probably because those terrorist would have divulged the true identity of who sent them there in the first place.

that's called a triple whammy princess
