This paper explains the link between the Lebanese policy and the defence of Lebanon through an analysis of the dichotomy in the Lebanese confessional policy and through a historical overview of the recent political movement in the field of national defence strategy. Besides, the issue of achieving a national defence strategy is examined from a politico-military perspective. To that end, the author takes a close look at the place of the Islamic resistance and of the Lebanese armed forces within the defence of Lebanon and at their respective capacities.
