Blocking an Ambulance To Make Way for an Armored Convoy
Blog Baladi -

Last week, I was stuck in traffic right next to an ambulance waiting for armed men in civilian clothes to clear the way. I have no idea if the ambulance was in a rush or not, but there was no where to go and we all had to wait for some politician to pass by. With the elections nearing, our dear politicians are attending events left and right without giving a damn about other cars or ambulances on the way.

This video was shot next to the Forum de Beyrouth and here’s another somewhere in Beirut. Yesterday, an armored convoy was cutting through cars like a madman on the maritime road (probably to catch some lunch).

I don’t know how long Lebanese will tolerate such politicians, who don’t feel bothered by blocking ambulances and frustrated people stuck in traffic and eager to get home. I don’t know how long we will tolerate being yelled at and humiliated by brainless men with machine guns, just so some dumbass politician passes by.
