I see that Hezballa, G-d's own party in Lebanon (*warning -- irony displayed here), has held a huge rally in Beirut with an estimated 1/2 million people. Hmmm? They couldn't have had any help from Syria and Iran for this display. Nah!
With the support of Syrian troops still in Lebanon and the Syrian and Iranian governments, Hezballa forces have their own militias and are not going to voluntarily give up their weapons and stand down.
They're already working to terrorize Lebanese Christians, Druse and others who might have other ideas.
Which means that talk about a free Lebanon anytime soon without a terrific struggle seems like a load of B.S. served warm.
