It is of course debatable to what extent their policies are 
'imperialist' --- to what extent one is helping or controlling 
communities. But my guess is that a significant fraction of the Lebanese 
population thinks the Iranian state is trying to control their society. 
Perhaps the same goes for the people of Taiwan and the Chinese state.
