In this book which has been banned in Lebanon and is the cause of much controversy in Lebanon and abroad, Cobra writes his story about the part he played with Elie Hobeika. known as "H.K." and his rise to power in the Lebanese government. Cobra's story depicts how Hobeika planned to destroy Lebanon, so he could rise to power and how he became Minister of Lebanon today and what part Cobra played in assisting Hobeika in his rise to power.

This book describes how money, crime and self interest have taken control of modern Lebanese politics. Cobra reveals the deadly truth, to let the people know what happened behind the scenes, in order that the Lebanese people might one day save what is left of Lebanon and judge Cobra for his acts accordingly.

Cobra writes:

"When we took up arms in the beginning of this political war it was for the survival of Lebanon. We did not take up arms to bring gangsters to power, but it happened".

"The United States is a superpower that protects the week nations of the world defending Freedom and Democracy. Do not forget Lebanon. Today, Syria is ruling Lebanon through terrorism. The Syrians have killed most of its leaders through assassination and car bombs, exiled some of the leaders and jailed what remained of the leaders which posed a threat to them. They imposed their candidates into Lebanon's politics so they can govern it for ever and make it part of Greater Syria. I decided to expose my story so everyone will know that Freedom and Democracy does not currently exist in Lebanon".

Cobra dedicates the book to his friends who lost their lives during the war. -- From the Publisher
