In the future,history will record that one of the most destructive and stupid wars since the dawn of civilization was our civil war [1975-1990].All sides did not win anything or achieve any goal.All of us were losers.The war ended abruptly as it started,but after 15 years .The same ailments in the Lebanese society that led to the silly war are still present,they are even much more prominant..We destroyed our country in a meaningless silly war for the sake of hollow ideologies or better still,for mere nothing.Our lives were ruined .I will present here more photos of my country before we decided to destroy it in 1975.Most of these photos were originally posted by [Kheireddine] on http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthr...

The accompaning music is the song of Sabah [yeslam lena lebnan ]
