"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Geagea says Hezbollah should bear responsibility for war's destruction and deaths - Naharnet

 Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea has held Hezbollah responsible for the losses resulting from its cross-border conflict with Israel.

“We have incurred 350 to 400 victims in addition to the destruction of dozens of villages, direct economic losses that surpass millions of dollars and indirect losses that no one can accurately estimate,” Geagea lamented in a Ramadan iftar banquet in Maarab.

Referring to Hezbollah and possibly Iran, the LF leader emphasized that “those who took the decision to implicate Lebanon should bear the responsibility and consequences.”

He added: “The government should immediately work on implementing Resolution 1701, because we have an interest in that. That would be accompanied by the deployment of the Lebanese Army along the southern Lebanese border, so that it defends every inch of Lebanese land, especially that everyone is behind it and the Arab countries and the entire world would support it and assist it.”
