Good work, let no one blame our security forces. They clearly mark their checkpoints, so why refuse to stop? During the days of Syrian occupation, not a single Lebanese dared breach a checkpoint of theirs, everyone was as obedient and respectful as little sheep. Me all I can say is good work, always, frappez avant de parler, it's the only language most Lebanese understand.
