سعد الحريري يستغرب الموقف الامريكي تجاه العدوان على لبنان رمى نفسه في ملعب أميركا مقتنعاً أنّ تلك الأخيرة ستساعد وطنه على القيامة، و ها هو الوطن يبكي دماء شهداء أبرياء بسبب حبّ العالم له… أسبوع مرّ على اندلاع حرب تمّوز الأسود، مئات أصبحوا في أحضان الله، آلاف يتألّمون و آلاف يهربون تاركين الوطن ساحة معركة […]
