    Now they have to gall to say that they didn't expect Israel to respond so violently.:rolleyes:

    I can almost hear Iran's government telling Hezbollah "oh don't worry they'll only send a few rockets over the border, nothing you guys can't handle"...:dev3:

    Or, perhaps this a play by Israel to force Iran's hand.

    I guess we will find out. Israel is getting awfully close to Syria's border as well.

    I don't think Israel sweats Syria at all. I DO think that any excuse to attack Iran will be a good excuse as far as Israel is concerned.

    Hezbollah, in that regard, is Iran's a Achille's Heel. A state-sponsored terrorist organization.

    Does Iran let Israel wipe it off the map, or come to their aid?

    I wouldn't put it past Iran & Syria to run counterfeiting operations if they could get their hands on the right materials. Think of it this way, counterfeiting is both helps them finance the various terrorist organizations to which they are tied, but it also helps undermine the American economy.

    It's just like Hizb'Allah hiding amongst the Lebanese: if the Israelis don't attack them for fear of hitting the Lebanese, it's a win; and, if the Israelis do attack, the Lebanese deaths make for great propoganda for hizb'Allah.

    Terrorist organizations, and perhaps their sponsoring countries, have been not only counterfeiting currency, but running drugs in order to get money for their cause. Furthermore, they've been doing both for years. I know that North Korea is definitely running drugs, e.g. opium, heroin and perhaps.

    One thing for sure, I'm hearing more disdain on "ALL" the news these days for "terrorists" in general. More and more people are saying these terrorists groups should ALL be wiped out, and that's exactly what we need to hear. When that sentiment is finaly echoed by China and Russia, we'll start REALLY seeing some difference made in the war on terror.
