Yea sure, the pills produced in Syria, used by rebels, loved in saudi and the gulf, being exported there, but it's certainly Fneish.

btw, thanks for reminding everyone of how the M8 cabinet dealt with offenders, even those related to the ministers: no protection, strict application of the Law. when was the last time M14 prosecuted one of theirs? what ever happened to antoun sehnaoui? right...

after benzon's comment was removed, my answers dont make sense anymore. for info he was randomly accusing Fneish.

Hey D-bag... in your article, where is the connection of the pills to the rebels? Oh, I see, you made that part up.

Here's a quote from the article:

"Captagon pills came from Syria to be packaged and put on trucks in the relative safety of the Bekaa Valley and then sent back through Syria toward Saudi Arabia"

I wonder why the pills are brought to the Bekaa? Who controls Bekaa?

Movaten, you're a liar, a big one nonetheless! I wrote Capt-a-Goon, hello Monsieur Fneish.

Where do you see accusations in this?
Hello = bonjour
Monsieur = mister
Fneish.... Well is Fneish.

It is a reminder that mr Fneish (who's Mr Fneish the Minister's brother) got caught in a similar investigation.

Accusation, ma fi!

I'm tired of you constant BS, you and your clones are radicalizing me, you're aouning me.... That's why you've been complaining about the quality of my messages.

tom: no i'm not randomly anything, antoun sehnaoui had his bodyguards fire inside a crowded nightclub, killed 1 if memory serves and wounded many. instead of presenting himself to summons he escaped through the airport while his friends at m14 made the case disappear, then he returned. those are facts, which contrast with fneish's case, where the m8 gov applied the law despite him being the brother of a minister.

pipole-popo: "But the men from Homs stood to make at between $650 million and $1.3 billion. That money was likely going back to Homs to purchase weapons, he said." this at least shows that rebels produced and exported a massive quantity of those pills.

benzo: no fneish's case was totally different, he was caught selling counterfeit pharmaceutical products from china. nothing to do with recreational drugs and drug dealing.
your mentioning him here was a disguised accusation by assimilation or at the very least a way of diverting the subject to serve your partisan propaganda and finger pointing.

PLS stop thinking m8 or 14 think Lebanon for God sake, grow up..
thanks

you tell us to grow up but you have the most childish approach of politics. we all "think lebanon" but then what? shouldn't there be some political programs? some teams entrusted to drive them? can't just say "think lebanon" and forget there are different parties, different visions and as citizens we must chose.
and if you're not happy with either M8 or M14 then create a third solution, whining is not productive.

Isn't there a correlation between all the increase in crime (including drug-busts) and the number of Syrians in Lebanon? Never one to be Xenophobic, but looks like we need to limit the Syrian people coming into Lebanon... oh and the pills too

When a captagon lab being run by the Hezz in Lebanon was found nothing happened because of their guns. They are a criminal mafia.

Dirty FSA-Al Qaeda terrorists.

They busted the 8kgs at the front door, for the press release, but there is probably another 100kgs which went "unnoticed" through the back door. L'AIB est une vraie passoire, and we all know that.

Yet another article about drugs that seems to attract many bloggers and commentors... What is the secret I wonder? Let me Guess. You are all users. Thumb up if you agree. Time for parliment to vote on a reform for the drug policy and decriminilize soft drugs tax it and control it. This will creat revenue for the indebted state and maybe the Arab countries where those drugs where going to will attract tourists that would like like to come to our sacred valley and light one up. I can think of a nice moto for the tourist ministry right now "Lebanon where the power might cut off but our joints stay lit 24/7."
Peace dear users.
