Wrong wording…
Whenever the NATO-crime syndicates gives anything to anybody it is sold, and you can be sure you’ll pay 10times more than its value.
Beside… is there a standard pricing for a human life, because that is what those weapons are for, to kill human beings?

You seem to forget the uncanny structure of Lebanese constitution : – Prez is Christian (and Aoun was elected with Nasrallah’s support and seen as an ally to Hezbo) – PM is Sunni – Prez of the chamber is Shiite.

Nevertheless, the 2006 UNSC resolution which was UNANIMOUSLY voted, orders the disarmament of ALL Lebanese militias. All have complied but one : the Iran-backed/funded Hezbollah’s military branch. In fact, it’s even the fact they started a war on Israel without any government approval that led to this UNSC… Read more »
