Destroying Beirut

Time Magazine (August 16, 1982)

On August 16, 1982, Beirut was on the cover of Time Magazine because it was getting bombed by the Israeli military.

On August 16, 2010, I feel like this haunting image could come back to life as we speak.

The Lebanese haven’t learned.

The so called “leaders of our country” sure haven’t learned.

And when people don’t learn from their mistakes, they easily go back to that haunting image on the Time cover.

Just don’t let Beirut pay for your stupid fucked up mistakes.

It has suffered enough.

Peace out.

    Friggin ay! I could not have said it better.
    I don’t know who is more stupid the Lebanese politicians, or the Lebanese people who blindly follow said Lebanese politicians.

    Yes, indeed, they don’t learn …

    They don’t use their history, they just repeat it like cheeps … following the leader X because he’s from the good religion or, because he have the biggest gun.

    They don’t realize that, no matter what, they are going to the grave by still following the way they are on.

    Quel triste gachis … un si beau pays, de si beaux éspoirs.
