A Lebanese-Canadian man is “helping” the Lebanese Army by buying them a tank!
The unidentified patriot went viral after posting a video saluting his country’s troops and offering to send them the larger-than-life gift!
"Greetings to the Lebanese army, we are with you and we support you," he said. "I will send it (the tank) to you from here in Canada."
Whether the army really needs help with their military equipment-count remains a mystery; so does the origin of the tank.
One Lebanese source did however point out that the Canadian government holds an auction where anything and everything they don’t need can be bought.
Auction items include used police cars, computer and exotic items.
The video has been watched more than 21,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube over the weekend.
If the man was hoping to fetch compliments for his patriotic act, he was wrong: those who commented on the video were hostile and disapproving of his gesture.
Surely one more combat vehicle would be a welcome addition to the Leb Army’s “collection”?
