Open Letter To Trump On Lebanon's Latest Tragedy

Below is my open letter to the President regarding the latest disaster in my beloved homeland - Lebanon – calling for action to free the hostage country from the Iranian/Hezbollah shackles and to protect US national security interests.

Mr. Donald Trump
White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

August 8, 2020

Mr. President,

I am writing you this letter as a friend, a diehard supporter, a Lebanese American capitalist and activist and a freedom loving patriot.

The Lebanese people have suffered for far too long under the control of Iran, Bashar al Assad, and the terrorist organization Hezbollah and need serious support.

What happened recently in Lebanon on August 4, 2020, was a devastation upon the Lebanese people; resulting in the destruction of the main port of Lebanon.

This explosion happened on purpose, those responsible being Hezbollah. As you know Mr. President, this ammonium nitrate came from Russia, and has been under the control of Hezbollah for years. Hezbollah moved over 80% of this ammonium nitrate into underground tunnels. Two days before this explosion, members of Hezbollah visited this warehouse disguised as emergency services storing this ammonium nitrate, and purposely set off the explosion. Only 20% of the ammonium nitrate was used to make a bomb of this magnitude. Meaning there are multiple other bombs of this size or greater hidden around the country.

Mr. President, the people of Lebanon are today in dire straits and need urgent support before all hell breaks loose; and most of these people are Christians.

The bomb was indeed targeted at Christians in particular, as it went off on Christian territory. Everything that has happened so far, has happened because Hezbollah controls the government and military and having people in the Lebanese government as their puppets..

Why do they control Lebanon you might ask? Because the “President” of Lebanon, Michel Aoun , is a traitor and has basically handed over all of Lebanon to Hezbollah since he took power back in October 2016 following the same tradition of every President of Lebanon before him starting with Elias Hrawi back in 1989.

The videos of this explosion were shocking. So horrible when people were already suffering so much. I wonder what really caused it.

My heart goes out to the people of Lebanon.

What implications are there, if any, for the wider region. Israel for example?

I'm been very saddened to read about what happened in Lebanon. A true tragedy. But the news reported that this was an accident. You make it sound like this explosion was set intentionally. Is there any evidence for this?

Of course it was set up intentionally. You clearly have a lot to learn about Lebanese and middle East politics

It makes no sense that the bomb was set-off intentionally. It has turned the Lebanese people against their government and Hezbollah.

Lebanese people were never for Hezbollah in the first place but against them. You clearly need a lesson in geopolitics

Trump said that US intelligence believed it was an attack.

The majority of everything out of Trump's mouth is a lie or pure fantasy. The intelligence community clarified for the media that they had no idea of what Trump was talking about as they had no such think. I for one would like to see what evidence Ziad K. Abdelnour has to claim this was an intentional attack.

Agreed. If true, the media would be reporting it. Even if it was even a likely possibility, they would be reporting it. But no reputable media outlet in the world is. Makes one wonder... where Ziad K. Abdelnour. Mind you, he may be correct, I certainly wouldn't put it past Hezbollah which is a ruthless terrorist organization. They could very likely be behind this, but without evidence, it's not responsible to report it.

Both US and Israeli intelligence reported that they believed Hezbollah was stockpiling this ammonium nitrate. But it's far more likely that they were planning to use this during the next war with Israel.

Agreed. If I understand the author correctly, he claims it was intentionally blown up now, targeting Lebanese Christians. That makes little sense. It was stored in this location for six years. Why now? Why not a church or other location. It simply blew up where it was stored, and damaged far more than Christian property. It knocked several hospitals out of commission, and sent thousands to remaining hospitals which were already overwhelmed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I think it's clear this was an accident, but one caused by the recklessness of Hezbollah and corrupt/inept government officials.
