I am all for supporting the Lebanese Army, but someone needs to stop these cheesy and lame Lebanese Army songs being played on TVs. Moreover, Al Jadeed’s TV anchor wore the army uniform yesterday as a sign of support, which I didn’t like as well and found really cheesy. It’s enough these days to just put a hashtag or a small logo just like LBCI did with the N thing.
Moreover, I think the best way for TVs to support the army would be to try and cover as much as possible what’s happening in Arssal instead of broadcasting stupid TV shows and try to explain to the Lebanese what’s really happening there, because I am sure most of them don’t have a clue who the army is fighting and how critical the situation is.
On a last note, I really hope the army controls the situation very soon because the Islamists are in the thousands there and pose a very serious threat to Lebanon unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Otv changed its logo friday i think
well said dude… super cheesy!!!!!
The best way TVs can help the Army is to stop covering the news and let the brave soldiers do their job. The reporters on the ground do a lousy meaningless job. They reveal information that should be kept secret for the own interest of the Army or they just repeat the well-known opinions of the TV stations owners and further poison the unity of our country. Also, it would be ideal if politicians just shut up at least until the end of the battle.
if its cheesy dont watch, or even dont comment that would be better. i felt it was sincere and a symbolic move, each political party in lebanon has its own tv station, the army has none, its gets its support through the channels as the politicians like. ALjadded also has largest number of followers in twitter 333 k, so i think they r doing the job right.
The only way we can support the army is by doing so all year long, not just playing songs when there are unfortunate events. Moreover, I didn’t say not to put anything. I said let the coverage be better and let us have some documentaries and more informational news on the army rather than some singer in an army uniform.
u sound like isis
Typical ‘takhween’ tactics. It’s shit like that that makes things worse in the country.
Everyone cheered and saluted the TV stations when they did the unified News broadcast for Gaza… but when it comes to supporting the Lebanese Army in whatever way… you call it cheesy?
This has nothing to do with the Gaza war as they are two different things and the other stand was needed against the silent Arab media in general and the subjective pro-Israeli media even though it didnt do much.
I never said don’t support the army. On the contrary, I said support it in a better way.
Frankly, with no offense i see this post as the one being cheesy, which is obviously a desperate attempt to get attention by flying away from the flock, i read your previous posts on your blog and you showed 0 support for the army ZERO (unless you consider this title as supportive “A Not So Happy Lebanese Army Day After All”) which is even worse if you do !
Before trying to condemn new stations or any individual who tries to express their thoughts in the way they find suitable, try to do better its a blog baladi after all, concerning the “broadcasting stupid TV shows” check your blog timeline and tell me again about stupidity, you are are a reputable blog and considered from the influencer in your society.. act this way !!
I have shown 0 zero to the army? Do you even follow the blog or what I tweet and post on FB? What the hell are you talking about?
Did you miss the “Da3ess Da3esh” banners on my Facebook Page? Did you even bother read my posts?
“The last thing we need are these scumbags raiding our towns and terrorizing our people and I want the army gets rid of all them and takes over the borders.”
Did you miss these old posts maybe?
I hope you read well what I am saying before assuming things and thank you!
I have ALWAYS shown an unconditional support to the Lebanese Army and refused ANY armed presence outside the army ever since I started this blog.
No one is doubting your unconditional support for the lebanese army, or else you wouldn’t see me following you, and yes i saw your lebanese army previous posts even though not on this existence war our troops are fighting, yet in the current situation and the crisis our country is going through that threaten in defacing our identity, any and all support lame, cheesy, plain and not creative should be welcomed and backed up, its not an ads of the world contest assessing the level of creativity of the contestants, its about the support by itself, what i would do is to encourage everyone to support the troops in any possible way without being ‘afraid’ of being criticized and scandalized on Social Media – (they might start thinking twice before showing their support-if they care originally).. and i guess we don’t want that!
Support the Lebanese Army !
Thank you !
If you notice well, I was addressing TVs and news anchors and not the people in general. Of course I wont go bashing people sharing army pictures and banners and songs. I am talking about the level of support that TVs should be giving and that should alert the public of the dangers our army is facing not just playing songs 🙂
Anyway I think we r on the same line of thought so as long as we r all behind the army then it’s cool.
I agree with Najib, it is cheesy..too cheesy
Lebanese over do it in everything!
supporting the army is great but there is this a certain limit
most of the songs and promotions looks fake and stupid and singers just take advantage of some situations to mark their presence.
Well,i tjink they’re covering enough and we sometimes wanna switch to another program we like ,just for a change from the depressing situation we’ve been living in
Everything is a competition in Lebanon, the latest one being who loves the army more. I open my Facebook page and it is like a war zone. I am not sure if the army even agrees on half of the material pictures and videos that is being published. The greatest one remains for some Hizbullah soldiers that committed some massacre in syria and everyone is praising them because they think it is the Lebanese Army. That is also a kind of support so probably Elie there likes it.
And Najib since you do not have any cheesy slogans on your blog allow me to say that I am sure beyond doubt that you are an ISIS supporter. I see you in there letting your beard loose and buying all black closes. Why because fuck logic that is why.
