Think of all the groups involved in street clashes in the US today. Three percenters, Boogaloos, Proudboys, BLM, Antifa, Marxists, “anarcho-” Marxists, militias, anti-lockdown protestors, MAGAists, SJWs, Oathkeepers, Red Guards, Redneck Revolt, Patriot Prayer, etc. Imagine all of them with weapons engaging in urban guerrilla with dozens of factions, and street gangs like the MS-13s eventually joining in. That’s what Lebanon was like in the 1970s and 1980s.
By the mid-1970s, #Lebanon‘s power vacuum reached its tipping point. Disenfranchised #minorities took up arms and plunged the country in total conflict.
