Pride in Hezbollah Fades as Lebanese Query War's Toll (Update2)
That is not a surprise. I have said on this newsgroup many times that as
the Lebanese recover from the shock of the damage and they face reality,
they will be very disgruntled and they will begin to question the "divine
victory" slogan. I also predicted that Shiite resentment will be bigger and
Hizbollah is now toeing the Syrian line calling for the government to
announcing that they will hold on to their weapons 'til kingdom comes;
all the while the UN peace-keeping forces are making these weapons
by their sheer presence in the South.
Aoun just wants to play the spoiler and cannot handle being ignored,
he is losing his hair, his supporters and his parliamentary block by
Lahoud is sunning himself in the presidential palace while Prime
Tony Blair, the leader of the United Kingdom visits Lebanon
The pro-Syria, Aoun Hizbollah axis in Lebanon have lost all
credibility, I am glad
that Prime Minister Sanioura is not even responding to them, it seems
to be driving them to use some pretty desperate sounding rhetoric.
Nasrallah could do well to enlarge his intellectual knowledge beyond
learned in Najaf and read some Greek history.
