Hello, Lebanon. It’s me, your friendly Green Patriot. If  you have been following the news, then you know that the Lebanese branch of the Syrian Nusra Front carried out a car suicide-bomber attack in Hermel, wounding 4 people and injuring 21. After claiming responsibility for the attack, they stated that they conducted this attack in order to discourage Hezbullah from sending fighters into Syria.

Lebanon, I do not know what to say anymore. I do not know what can cause this political violence. Realistically speaking, I do not know that the polite requests of civilians to cease violence will be effective when addressing militant groups.

We try our best to turn the other way in order to effectively go on with our lives the best way we can, but God help us…whenever we have a bit of time to breathe, another explosion goes off. How are we ever going to recover?
