Car Bomb Inspired Ads in Beirut


I remember growing up as a teenager in Lebanon, a string of random bombings and targeted assassinations rocked Beirut and its Northern suburbs every other week or so for around 3 years. Today, the bombings are back, even though they might have changed in style and purpose. However, the “collateral damage” is still there, and even worse than before. With over hundreds killed and thousands injured, the overwhelming majority are innocent passerby, and most buildings are residential and commercial ones owned by ordinary folks like you and me.

Usually, when a bombing causes a said number of injuries, over 90% on average are cuts from flying shards of glass or other minor injuries that often need no hospital or are in and out of the ER in less than two hours. So, the 3M safety and security film for glass windows and doors ads are back, and it’s an ominous reminder of the hell that is living in constant fear of the next bombing, and the precautions available, and even marketed, to bolster the “safety of your loved ones…”

Chin up Beirut, and stay safe.


    • YURI BEZMENOV says

      … It’s a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages. The first stage being “demoralization”. It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism…..

      ….in other words [for] these people the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible. To rid society of these people you need another 15 or 20 years to educate a new generation of patriotically minded and common sense people who would be acting in favor and in the interests of United States society. …

      ( Change American by Lebanese, and you will understand a lot a lot of things, so No patyl, we will not go back like in 05 :) )

      And Everyone who Thinks like this, is an ignorant !
