Lebanon and the Second Ammendment

Reply Wed 19 Jul, 2006 02:58 pm
The world clearly needs more private ownership of firearms, and not less; in other words, the second amendment is an idea whose time has come all around the world, and not just in the United States.

Anybody to whom that proposition is not sufficiently obvious at this point should take a good look at the news coming out of Lebanon. You look at the situation the Lebanese have fallen into and ask yourself what could possibly have spared them from such an experience, and the only thing that comes to my mind at all is the possibility of ALL Lebanese being armed.

Then, starting from about ten or twenty years ago, had a hezbollah militia waltzed into the country with the avowed purpose of provoking Israel and the IAF into a major aerial onslaught against Lebanon's entire infrastructure, the Lebanese could have said something like:


"Hey, you know, you mother-****ers have 48 hours to be out of our country before about ten million of us start shooting at you with 308 ammunition and recoilless rifles and mortars....."

That would actually have worked. If anybody else has a solution wjhich would have worked for Lebanon starting from about 15 or 20 years ago, I'd like to hear it.

Gunga, I have to say this is perhaps the first time I have ever agreed with you.

It is very clear that what Lebanon needs now, and what it has always needed, is more weapons. In fact the lack of weapons in Lebanon is clearly the biggest problem they face.

There is hope though... after all Katyusha rockets are a form of arms.

What I don't get is why Israel is trying to disarm them...

Let's diverge. Geneticist Spencer Wells has discovered that the Caananites and the Phoenicians and the inhabitants of Lebanon are the same people. Love genetics!
