When the army targets the people who are defending themselves and aligns itself with the murderous scum that started the whole thing.
Man-oush go get brain washed by some other rapist again. You claim the army is run by Shia which is a load of rubbish it's run by Hariri and his thugs

Outlaws should be prosecuted regardless of sect or political affiliation. It does seem however that the Army is quick at arresting non-shia outlaws. I tend to agree with manoushe to some extent. I cannot accept my army to stand by and watch a political party send thousands of fighters to wage a war in another country. As to the roar, he is always bankrupt as usual.

Southern, people like are what starts civil wars and fuels hate. If hezballah would go to tripoli to fight with the army then this conflict will become shiite militia + shiite led army fighting muslims of the north. In other words a full-out civil war that you of course would blame on trpoli instead of on your precious hezb pagans. Honestly, hezb supporters are causing so much hate online and then act innocent of secterianism. As if they would allow a muslim milita fighting alongside the army to enter dahyeh or any other iranian area of lebanon to arrest its tens of thousands (probably more than 100 000) criminals and not view it as a secterian war.

The army must act with a firm and just hand. Why are they not raiding HA neighborhoods to find the man (HA member) that is wanted by the LEBANESE judiciary in connection with the attempted murder if Harb?? Why are they not raiding alawite Eids house to bring him to justice as requested by LEBANESE institutions? Respect is earned and not just given.

Thumb arzak-ya-libnan 01 December 2013, 16:13

No reply to the points I have given. Just your typical justification of HA armed existence. I have always. In ALL my posts advocated for the full prosecution of anyone who attacks the army. If your short sighted memory cannot recall that them it is not my problem. There is nothing wrong with criticizing the wrong ANY institution does. Be it the presidency, the parliament or the army and security services (which m8 regularly criticize). This guy, if indeed he shot at the army, should be executed. But let the army enforce decisions on every sect and side of the spectrum. So you can stop twisting my words to suit your narrow minded agenda.

Thumb arzak-ya-libnan 01 December 2013, 16:20

And now HA is (according to you) the sole defender of Lebanon. AND Syria. Holding my breath and crossing my fingers for HA to be a pan-Arab protection force.

Thumb arzak-ya-libnan 01 December 2013, 17:27

sure it is roar... i am here justifying an attack on the army while i just said in all my posts said they should be prosecuted.. if mentioning other crimes the LAF should attend to is akin to me saying they should be attacked i am disappointed by your mental capabilities.
and half the Lebanese think HA are NOT the defenders of Lebanon... so no matter how many times you click your heals and say it is fact it wont make it so... so maybe you should get used to that.
and if you haven't noticed from my past points it i believe in the LAF as the sole defender of Lebanon.. and so do a vast majority of Lebanese... people are arming if you haven't noticed.. to defend Lebanon from this filth called the "islamic resistance"
after HA is knocked down to size.. and plays the political game on par with everyone else.. m14 can go to hell and burn for all i care...

Listen to all these traitors to the Lebanese state and army. You can bring up all the names you want and all the grievances from your past, and it won't justify your treacherous comments to the army. All you March 14 supporters are saying is that it is okay to attack the army and have soldiers killed because of your past grievances. What a bunch of traitors. You should all be arrested for treason. The resistance has assisted the army and is the most loyal group to the Lebanese state so eat your hearts out darlings.

Where do you live in Bahrain (possibly we are neighbors).
Similarly there are no wanted killers who refuse to turn themselves in and are protected by their cult in Bahrain. Do you know otherwise?
So in my book and the book of great majority of M14ers, fine arrest those that shoot at the army but also arrest those who are suspected of crimes on the other side. I am positive that any kultured person would agree with me.

Were you on vacation when jabal mohsen not only protested the arrest of Ali Eid but also declared that he will not be turned in to authorities? Were you on vacation then, I did not hear your support of the State at that time, or when other M8 supported crimes were committed. Do you believe in Laww applies to ALL?

tripoli is a good diversion for the mass to make forget the hundreds of hezbis being killed in syria... while talking about tripoli people forget what is going on in syria!

Missing peace 01 December 2013, 22:14

poor M8ers.... so desperate that they want to make appear the arrest of one man firing against the army as if all M14 was implied! LOL

and they pretend not to want to spread hatred? it is exactly what they try to do here by generalizing an isolated case to a whole group... typical behaviour of extremists and fanatics...
LOL hypocrit people...
