The U.S. offers Lebanon twelve Raven unmanned

15Apr09

raven_unmanned_lebanonThe United States will provide the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) with twelve Raven unmanned aircraft in the coming months.

Really? I mean who would read this and not think the U.S. intentions in doing its utmost not to monitor Hezbollah and it’s movements.

The U.N. is doing its part rather efficiently, and effectively in keeping the peace, but its not working for Israel to protect it’s border, and hence needs guarentees to feel secure.

Even though the Lebanese Armed Forces are the ones in control of these unamnned Ravens, it’s hard to escape that feeling where they wouldn’t encourage the LAF to supervise activities by Hezbollah. A counter argument would be, Israel already flies over Lebanon freely to supervise Hezbollahs movements anyways.

The offer is kind, but what worries this current post is the intention behind it.

  1. I think the issue here is not more than the fact that the US just wants to provide the LAF with some kind of aerial support similar to the one done by Russia and the UAE (and was it Jordan as well!?) But seeing that the Israelis have so much control over there, they wouldn’t allow the US administration to provide more than these paper kites… When I first read the news I was like WHOA, then I googled these ravens and it turns out that they are literally paper kites!!

    Friday 17th April – True Story –
    I had a dream – unfortunately not the Martin Luther dream genre-… you’d know why in less than a minute:
    I had a dream and woke up @05h30 in panic!.. I DREAMT OF BUSH * !! – “hush my baby baby dont you cry…” **

    The cinematography of this dream was magnificent I must give my subconscious the credit; briefly …. And as the fog started to clear:

    Georges Fu””ing Bush *** was up in the air on a bird “chopper” and he introduced to us an Alien on a Spaceship , announcing that this Alien would help him through in the Middle East to do whatever he wants!

    I cannot sleep properly till now, not even @ washington’s timing… I guess there are eyes everywhere o-0 “giggle”

    flat Foot Notes:
    * BUSH : i guess my brain is totally not politically active anymore! Obama is the president now fool!Ha!

    ** Quote: from Mother by Roger Waters.

    *** Georges Fu””ing Bush: Georges is not gay, Georges wasnt fu””ing Bush, Georges is his first name.

    they wanna watch, we are either so interesting of a sight, or their pants are still getting scary heavy!
