That is putting lives at risk as the pandemic rages.

Lebanon has no natural resources & no money.

The country has nothing to offer the world.

Lebanon is finished. Just forget about it.

State of Lebanon should start selling real estate to foreigners for Dollars.
That will be the only way to get Lebanon out of fail state status.

It is a sad situation……..but music to the Ayatollah's ears.
The Iranian Ayatollah wants a fascist theocracy in Lebanon
and is funding Hezbollah to deliver it into his hands.
Hezbollah specialize in assassinations, but they also have 10,000 armed
thugs, occupy the finance ministry and refuse to budge.

They need to move over to crypto currency to find alternative option of financial recovery.

If you're just 4-6 weeks away from the cessation of water and electricity nationally, the solution is not longer as simple as fighting government corruption.

When your country has become THAT bankrupt, recovery is going to be a difficult path that requires not only capable leadership but a willing public who understand the path back is a long, painful journey.

International intervention will only make the situation worse. Let's hope Lebanon figures itself out and isn't simply annexed.

How about diverting the money iran is giving to hezbollah to the lebanese people? or even selling hezbollahs weapons and buying food with the money?
