Lebanon to Obama: Shove it

Well, here's the title on Ynet's main page - which differs from the article once clicked: "Lebanon tells US to shove it"

Reality bursts in the face for those who hoped that funding and supporting Lebanon's infrastructures by the west would not be just subsidizing Hezbollah.

Lebanon: US can keep aid, give it to Israel
Spiteful response: Lebanon's defense minister slams American decision to halt military aid to Beirut following deadly border skirmish with Israel; 'Let them keep their money or give it to Israel,' he says

Lebanon's defense minister on Wednesday lashed out at a US decision to halt aid to his country's army in the wake of a deadly border clash with Israel, protesting that aid was being made conditional.

"Whoever sets as a condition that the aid should not be used to protect Lebanon's land, people and borders from the (Israeli) enemy can keep their money," Defense Minister Elias Murr told a news conference. "Let them keep their money or give it to Israel. We will confront (Israel) with the capabilities we own."


Conditions like: Don't let terror group take control over the help we give you, don't start wars over a tree on the other side of the border...
