The 14th of March

The call that was made by the Taef government to support south Lebanon and U.N. resolution 425 on March 14 is merely a fake call. The main purpose of the Taef government is to wipe away from the memory of the Lebanese people the true meaning of March the 14th. On this day in 1989, the Lebanese people with their legitimate government (Gen. Aoun’s government) declared the war of liberation against Syrian occupation of Lebanon.

The memory will remain for many generations to come. On this occasion we pay tribute to our martyrs in the Lebanese army and all the Lebanese civilians who paid a heavy price for the cause of a free Lebanon. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten for they are the corner stone of our liberation and independence.

Lebanon, at your Orders,

The Chief
