Spillover: Hezbollah Bombed in Lebanon
The other day Michael Totten wrote an article on the future of Beirut, wondering if in the post-civil war era it could regain the title The Paris of the Middle East? I didn't bother linking the article at the time because the answer seems so obvious: no.I hate being right about stuff like this:
A powerful car bomb ripped through a crowded southern Beirut neighborhood that is a stronghold of the militant group Hezbollah on Thursday, killing at least 14 people and trapping dozens of others in burning cars and buildings in the latest apparent violence linked to the civil war in neighboring Syria, officials said. Groups opposed to Syria’s President Bashar Assad have threatened to retaliate against Hezbollah for intervening on behalf of his regime in the conflict. The blast raises the worrying specter of Lebanon being pulled further into the Syrian civil war, which is taking on an increasingly sectarian tone.I can't imagine Hezbollah will just sit back and take this. These aren't exactly the forgive and forget types.

Let every bomb they set off killing others and every death they caused be revisited upon them.

The islamics do a great job of killing themselves without any help.

You ever spend time living in Bethlehem or Nazareth? With the so called palestinians? Spend time with Lebanese, there?

You can tell when he makes sense as his comments are deleted. After we've all read them.

You can bet he's been in the West a long time. Or was educated in the West.
