The Lebanese PM resigns after >1/3 of cabinet quits

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-cabinet-quits


Lebanon’s besieged government has fallen, one week after a cataclysmic explosion destroyed Beirut port, with the country’s prime minister, Hassan Diab, claiming the disaster was the result of endemic corruption.

Diab announced the resignation of the government after more than a third of ministers quit their posts, forcing Diab himself to resign.

Diab, who has been prime minister for nine months, was due to notify the president, Michel Aoun, who was expected to accept his resignation.

“I said that corruption is rooted in every part of the state,” the prime minister said. “But I found out that corruption is greater than the state.

“A political class is using all their dirty tricks to prevent real change. The more we tried to get to them, the bigger the walls became.

“This disaster is the result of chronic corruption,” said Diab, repeating: “The corruption network is bigger than the state.”

Seems like a waste to lose a government who has only been in office so recently. Doesn't seem like this was specifically their fault. At least that's my reading.

Just buck-up and do the job they need you to do. Damn, Lebanon just can't get a break.

True, but when the masses want blood they'll only settle for the top. There is no reasoning with the head hunting mob or the grieving.

Not sure if this has been posted, but i've been following this guitar channel for a while and this video regarding the Beirut explosion and possible fund raising method seems legit.

Also it's worth a watch;
