• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Capital city of Lebanon and the most diverse city in the Middle East. During the Cedar Revolution, cynics noted the presence of Arab women in revealing outfits.

Beirut is mostly known because of the civil war, covered in Spy Game. Suicide bombing as a military tactic started here, the most notable case being the attack on US and French Marines in 1983 (Mac Taylor in CSI New York was injured here, then proceeded to get widowed in 9/11).

On a lighter note, do not attempt to drive in Beirut unless you are absolutely certain you know what you're doing.

Other appearances:

  • Features in The Man with the Golden Gun
  • Nearly every movie involving grizzled covert operatives will mention a previous mission in Beirut.
  • Anthony Bourdain was filming here for No Reservations and got stuck in the most recent war conflict. After getting out of there, he used the footage and presented the episode anyway. The episode won an Emmy.
  • Featured thrice in Globe Trekker, first with Ian Wright and later with Merrilees Parker and Megan McCormick.
  • Waltz with Bashir has portions taking place in Beirut during the 1982 War, including the Sabra and Shatila massacre.
