Berri to Hariri: Dissociation Policy Doesn't Entail Accepting Syria Strike


Speaker Nabih Berri announced Wednesday that Lebanon's so-called dissociation policy does not involve “accepting” a military strike on Syria.

“Lebanon rejects the aggression against Syria that is being planned by some Western countries with funding from some Arab countries,” Berri said in an interview published by the website of al-Akhbar newspaper.

He warned that “any use of the Lebanese airspace” in the potential strikes would be a “blatant violation of Lebanese sovereignty.”

“Lebanon cannot accept the use of its airspace for an attack on Syria or any other brotherly Arab country,” Berri stressed.

He noted that “those who call for dissociation in this case would be contributing to the aggression against Syria.”

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Saad Hariri had announced that “Lebanon abides by the dissociation policy in light of the possible U.S. strike on Syria.”

“Our stance is clear: dissociating ourselves and protecting the country from the repercussions of what's happening in the region,” Hariri added.

Berri to Hariri: Dissociation Policy Doesn't Entail Accepting Syria Strike

nor does it entail sending a sectarian militia to Syria, Iraq and Yemen or firing Iranian Ballistic missiles over Riyadh.

Please Berri, don't accept and show us what you and your Amal and Hezbollah thugs will do. We anxiously await....

Tell me Mr Berri, does the dissociation policy, as you understand it, entail accepting Syria's regime sending explosives with ex-Lebanese minister-cum-turncoat assassin Michel Samaha, to murder Lebanese politicians, religious leaders, innocent civilians and try to cause civil strife? And does it entail having another one of it's Lebanese turncoat assassins Ali Eid blow up two mosques full of worshipers and try to blame it of the people that blew up Da7ieh days earlier.. humm, maybe the same people were responsible for the Da7ieh and Tripoli bombings, those same ones who controlled Lebanon from Anjar and are periodically trying to sow sectarian strife.
