Free trips , he's going home sweet home, where he spent the best 16 years of his life living on French social benefits, all paid with French taxpayers' money. Now that he's back to Leb, he no longer needs them as he and his family help themselves straight from the government budgets...

Clearly the quisling speech will highlight Lebanon's advancement and how green the country is going, we consume a lot less electricity than any other nation in the Middle East. We recycle our water so well that it would not be surprising to hear that sewage is going straight back into our drinking water plus we have zero garbage disposal to our landfills as it all goes into the rivers for...err additional recycling. Yes He could also brag our democratic drive and that were unanimous with every Syrian and Iran decision in the region and the government is so efficient that we don't need a president or government to run the country into the ground! Our economy is so good that the Dollar is used to buy everything from a loaf of bread to the pay for an Arghili and espresso in the morning traffic. Lets hope they give him time enough to really brag about his achievements in the last couple of years.
