Once the Civil War began these militias, who were being given military training, financing and arms by those meddlesome countries vying for influence in Lebanon, grew larger, more diversified, better equipped and ever more brainwashed, subsequently destroying the country and causing the death of tens of thousands of people.To ignore them, passing off events such as Jahilieh's as a scout group's jamboree, would only encourage all other parties, sects and regions to do the same under the pretext of defending themselves from such militias in disguise.
