I’m pretty sure that the “looks like Beirut” jab was in French:
A group of firefighters more used to putting out fires decided to switch roles when they smashed the windows of their boss’s car and set it alight on Monday.
The incident happened in the town of Vailhauquès in the southern Languedoc-Roussillon region during a demonstration by firefighters.
The attacked car belonged to Colonel Risdorfer who attacked those who started the fire as “yobs.”
“There’s no other word for them,” he said. “It’s unacceptable and scandalous to attack public property. They also turned my office upside down. It’s like Beirut.”
C’est comme Beyrouth! Anyone willing to help translate my “Looks Like Beirut” Certificate to French?
