The 70 meter (230 ft) high bridge, near the mountain resort town of Sofar on the mountainous road linking Beirut and Damascus, was hit several times during the first days of the war but on July 21 a 200-metre-long section was completely destroyed as it was bombarded continuously. Ironically, the Americans paid for its reconstruction.
Also and as you can see from the picture, snow is everywhere. I don’t remember the last winter where we had that much snow.
I think we had snow more than this year in Winter 1992, 20 years back! It snowed at 300m of altitude as I remember!
Why is it ironic that the US paid for it?
Ya dude what do you see ironic about that?
Because the US provided a big load of missiles for Israel to attack Lebanon and Hezbollah during that same exact war?
lol the US sells weapons to whoever buys them. There’s nothing ironic about what they did, it’s not like they sell weapons exclusively to Israel. Pretty sure Lebanon has some US-bought automatic rifles.
US sell and manufacture weapons exclusively to Israel and they have special bonds that no other country has. They are strategic unseparable allies and the weapons we get from the US are mostly lousy humvees, and old weaponry.
In other words, they give us the left overs.
They still sell weapons to other nations, including Lebanon. So everything else is irrelevant.
What if Israel buys some of their missiles from USA…Does that mean anything significant to you? Lebanese army has US weapons as well!
It is not a problem of buying missiles my friends, the problem that you are not seeing is that USA supported Israel politically, economically and military (and not only military) during July war which was lead by Israel AGAINST OUR COUNTRY!
johnny; I don’t want to get into politics and whether you are right or wrong! Israel has friends everywhere in the world. It is no secret that USA has been a supporter of Israel for decades. As for the war; well it was initiated by a party in your own country. Do not poke the lion’s den especially when you know how brutal, savage & merciless the response could be!
I am just saying my point of view and I am not afraid of any “brutal, savage & merciless” response.
Regarding the the party of my own country, I am not justifying anybody’s action.
If you know Israel had friends everywhere and USA is a “supporter” of Israel, then you are fully supporting my point of view!! Thanks.
Johnny…what’s your point of view or point for that matter? It seems you just found out about USA/Israel relationship:
“the problem that you are not seeing is that USA supported Israel politically, economically and military…”
From what u have just said it seemsthat u r young not in politics but generally.
Since u have turned our discussion to personal i am not going to reply to ur nonsense and irrespectful words.
Just for ur information i am very cultured and i read lot of books and articles concerning this subject and other matters…so Please keep ur judgments for u. Full stop.
Guys, I am starting to regret I added this small comment. All I meant was that it gives Israel weapons then it repairs after it.
Please keep this away from politics.

You used someone else’s username and commented in their place. I don’t care what you post or comment but don’t steal another person’s ID. That’s not funny nor easy for us to figure out when there are many comments.
I just checked I thought I deleted all related comments to ur early one. Ones u reported are also deleted now.
I didn’t steal anybody’s ID that’s not true!!! check ur logs please
the one that said something about reading books, wasn’t mine, bir it was yours, someone used “Johnny.b”
Anyway thanks for deleting all reported replies.
I checked and it shows Johnny.B with ur IP. Anyway, I am glad you didn’t do it. Probably some bug or something.
I am an Lebanese-American and I support Israel over Iranian ideologies and their political dominance any day of the week..
I thought that Mdairej bridge is the tallest until I came across this link below, which shows a 230 meters high bridge in Iran already exist since 2005 (more than 3 times higher than Mdairej bridge) and there was a plan in 2011 to build an even higher bridge in Iran. Sorry to disappoint you just like I was disappointed that mdairej bridge is not the highest.
