    :tongue:
    Tough times for Hezbollah in fast changing region
    Feb 6,`13: These are tough times for Hezbollah. The Shiite militant group's uncompromising support for Syrian President Bashar Assad and allegations that it attacked Israeli tourists in Bulgaria are both unpopular in Lebanon, where it is increasingly accused of putting the interests of longtime patrons Iran and Syria over those of its home country.

    Is it weakness of the president...or the whole world knowing how divded we are and acting on that little bit of space to drive a bigger wedge? I think the latter is the main cause..and effect.

    Hezbollah fueling sectarian sentiment across the volatile region...
    :eek:
    Hezbollah Provokes Sunni Anger by Joining Syrian Conflict
    June 7, 2013 – Hezbollah has hailed the retaking of a strategic rebel stronghold in Syria as a blow to the U.S. and Israel, but behind the bluster, the Lebanese Shi’ite terrorist group has taken a huge gamble in providing open and substantial military support to the Assad regime, fueling sectarian sentiment across the volatile region.

    What counterpoint is needed?

    Isn't Iraq supposed to be free and independent?

    There's not much an American President can do. Being that Iraq is free and independent.

    Not paying for a subscription to this stupid linke, but it's not like we have a lot of influence with Iraq at this point.

    We toppled Saddam and put the Shi'ites in power. You can thank your boy Bush for that.

    You know, exactly the point. The NeoCons screamed all day about how we needed "Freedom" and "Democracy" in the middle east to counter terrorism.

    And when the free and democratically elected government over there does something we don't like, but is popular with their electorate, we wring our hands? Really?
