Before my latest addition this page contained terrible half-truths, completely biased towards attacking Israeli involvment in Lebanon's war. I basicly copied and pasted a bit of the background from the more even-handed History_of_Lebanon page, and kept all that was written afterwards. The result is self-contradictory, unordered and messy, but it's less of a propoganda as a little more info is given, and a link to the history exists.

I recomment a complete rewrite of this page by someone with a little time on his hands. Verified information can be found in the external links of the hisotry page.

Disambig page[edit]

This page is a disambiguation page and should not be confused with List of wars involving Lebanon, which needs to be created and might include also "non-wars" like conflicts and operations, but putting them here is just creating a confusion. Per WP:GF i will be happy to help create such a list.Greyshark09 (talk) 20:26, 22 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just to clarify - any event described by WP:RS as "War" should be put into the disambig page. However most of the events which i have removed - to my best nowlege no reliable sources describe them as wars (for this purpose al-Manar station calling an event "al-Harb" certainly doesn't count as WP:RS). Be aware that not any violent event is a war, since a war is a time-confined event of adequate opponents' warfare, when at least one side is a state (not some clash of two terrorist groups). Also usually, war is applied for events with 1,000+ calsualties (not always, like the excceptional case of Libyan-Egyptian War with 500 killed).Greyshark09 (talk) 21:32, 22 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Try the list, could be good. FunkMonk (talk) 01:43, 23 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Check this out List of wars involving Lebanon, you are welcome to modify, edit and add info. I just want to draw your attention that we need to merge War of the hotels into Battle of the Hotels, and that 1860 conflict couldn't involve Lebanon (state), as Lebanon certainly didn't exist at the time as a state (it was Eylayet of Sidon and Eylayet of Damascus, part of Ottoman Empire).Greyshark09 (talk) 07:04, 23 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
