Do you think Russia is interested in Lebanon?

Is it good or bad for Lebanon? Do you think Russia should be just as much of a factor in Lebanon as the US/KSA? Should anyone even trust Russia? Do you think we dont have a choice? and why? how much should they be involved if its not a choice?

Whether Russia gets involved or not...what will it change?

The main issue with Lebanon is that its people follow different religions with incompatible values. You can't build a country in such conditions.

Whether Russia gets involved or Papua New Guinea or Iceland...the main issue will not change.

We need less countries nosing in, not more. Of course, with so many politicians whoring themselves to foreign powers, we cannot really blame those countries.

Here's a strange idea, how about we mind our own business without anyone else's interference?

Nothing will change - the Sunni community will continue, as they always have, being Arab first and controlled by Saudi and the Shiites are armed and financed by Iran, Hezbollah is open about it. What Lebanon doesn't need is another foreign country getting involved - what it needs are the Maronites to find real leadership and statesmen and serve as the natural buffer while the Sunnis and Shiites fight over their idiotic interpretation of what Lebanon is and should be in this world. Lebanon needs to remain neutral territory and unfortunately the Muslims are controlled by outside forces. Yes, it's as simple as that.

Dont understand your comment - I never mentioned Geagea specifically, I said 'the Maronites' meaning more generically, their entire leadership is weak.
