Forums - Politics Discussion - Powerful explosion in Beirut

Poor Lebanon... so much suffering since the 70's on what was once called "Paris of the Middle East"



Around the Network

Now atleast 158 dead, and over 6000+ wounded.

There are mass demostrations, and fights between the people and police.
Their prime minster just announced hes going to step down (resign).


Macron was on a visit to devastated Beirut on Thursday. He said he was asked by local leaders and by people in the street to "return to the mandate," when the region was a French protectorate a century ago. He firmly dismissed the idea.

He told the crowd: "You can't ask me to substitute for your leaders. It's not possible. And in any case, it would not be a solution."
"It's up to you to write your history."
Still, he repeatedly referred to close ties between the countries and promised everlasting support for Lebanon after a blast.

Macron promised that "France will never let Lebanon go. It will never abandon Lebanon and the Lebanese," and added that "the heart of the French people still beats to the pulse of Beirut."

Imagine visiting a old protectorate, and have the local people beg you (even some of the leaders), to take back the rains of the country.



Saw a video being spread around social media last night with bodies and body parts littering the streets with the person recording crying as they walked through the carnage.
Extremely confronting for those not normally exposed to such images... Don't advise anyone to watch it.

Yeah, I saw it too, really sickening.

What else is sickening? Using the destruction as backdrop for a sexy photoshoot:
