Wikipedia Source: Lebanon deliberately participated in few external conflicts, except the Arab wars against Israel, in 1948 and 1967, with the Egyptian, Syrian and Jordanian armies. Otherwise, it is mainly conflicts that he undergoes. This is true of the various Israeli invasions of Lebanese territory  and the importation of the Syrian crisis into Lebanon, which is becoming more and more worrying as the situation gets bogged down in Syria. The same Syria, moreover, has always shown some inclination for annexation vis-à-vis Lebanon including maintaining its presence in Lebanon and its hold on the functioning of the state  and the economy  . According to the Lebanese, corruption is undoubtedly the major scourge in the country, in the same way as confessionalism and communitarianism . Of course, it is difficult to find extensive studies on the subject or to obtain perfectly reliable figures, but even the available estimates seem overwhelming for Lebanon. For example, the Lebanese Transparency Association (LTA) has estimated the index of perceptions of corruption in Lebanon at 2.5 / 10  which places the country, for the 2011, ranked 134th worldwide out of 183 countries. This score has been the same since 2009, reflecting “the persistence of a high level of actual and perceived corruption” .
