Lebanon got a verbal apology from a press release by the US embassy in Lebanon regarding the disgusting violation of Lebanese ruins in the city of Tyre. Imagine if a Lebanese ambassador were to drive through the George Washington's property in Mount Vernon ruining the place during the drive. What would the US have said and done? How would the American public responded? When you wonder why people "hate us", look at the picture right below and see a small example of the grotesque arrogance of US power.
