Lebanese army incapable of protecting Lebanon

The Lebanese Army has run out of ammunition.

After years of demanding that Syrian troops leave Lebanon, Beirut's right-wingers may now be wishing they were still there. They protested that Lebanon was capable of protecting itself, and that its army could do the job the Syrians did for 15 years.

But they've been criticised by the UN for flawed investigations into the recent political murders. And now they didn't even realise they were running low on ammunition.

But that's not the end of the story. The haven't even got enough spare parts for their vehicles and equipment.

They're just across the border guys!
