Lebanon’s Armed Christians

From the World Affairs Journal:

These are the reasons why Lebanon, unlike other Middle East countries, still has so many Christians—until very recently an outright Christian majority.

See? Arms are a technology, like animal husbandry. You have power if you work them. That’s true, and that’s all.
