intervention in Syria was necessary so that we don't have to fight daesh in Lebaon, it spared lebanon a war, disregarding if daesh would have been able to take over part or whole of lebanon. what is certain, is that they would have attacked on all possible fronts, external and internalNeutrality doesn't mean you have to be weak. It means that you don't have to fight in Yemen to boost Iran's regional plans... It means that you don't have to massacre Syrian children and women to save a tyrant called Bashar. It means that you don't have to attack friendly nations (e.g: gulf countries) to please Iranians.
Neutrality means using your strength defensively for your country's interest and not to advance a foreign axis/agenda.
The patriarch never called to sit idle if Lebanon is under attack. We will defend ourselves if attacked, but we don't wanna engage in hostile actions against other nations at the expense of our national interests.
As for yemen and iraq, I think HA sent experts and not real force as in syria. so you can't say this is a real intervention.
So the neutrality claim of Rahi is baseless
