Lebanon: Keep Your Eye on the Ball

WorldNetDaily cites Jack Wheeler on the war on terror, Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah. He's got some serious misgivings about the likelihood of bringing democracy to Lebanon easily. Hezbollah, more than Syrian military and intel, does seem to be the means by which the thugs intend to halt the democracy movement, and Hezbollah is directly responsive to the mullahs in Iran:

"[according to Wheeler,] Hezbollah's chief of military operations, who has over 20 years in the terror business, is set to start a civil war in Lebanon. . . . [H]e writes, 'this could turn out really ugly. Dispatch after dispatch, story after story, and all you read about is Syria's getting its troops and spies out of its colony. Congressmen like Darryl Issa, R-Calif., write newspaper op-eds entitled "Lebanon: Democracy's Next Stop." All without a word about Hezbollah. All without a word about Iran.' . . . .

Syria, Wheeler states, is not the chief problem for Lebanon – it's Iran.

Writes the analyst: 'Bashar al-Assad is a puppet of the Mullacracy in Tehran. The people who give the orders to the Syrian troops in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley are Iranian Revolutionary Guards, the Pasdaran. Hezbollah was founded in 1982 among Lebanon's Shia Muslims with money and weapons from Iran. It is run by the world's worst terrorist, who is most decidedly not Osama bin Laden.

'Osama is a Hollywood terrorist . . . . The most important and dangerous terrorist in the world is a man most everybody has never heard of. His name is Imad Mugniyeh. He is the true King of Terror.'

Wheeler then lists Mugniyeh's terror rap sheet, everything from organizing the 1983 killing of 242 U.S. Marines in Lebanon to involvement in the 2000 USS Cole attack. Besides countless acts of terror, Mugniyeh, Wheeler says, was involved in shuttling Saddam's WMDs into Hezbollah's care before the Iraq war.

Predicts Wheeler: 'Imad Mugniyeh and the Hezbollah, at the direction of Iran, will ignite another civil war in Lebanon, destroying that country's chances for democracy and freedom from Syrian colonial control – and halting thereby George Bush's Middle East Freedom March right in its tracks.'

Wheeler's solution for Bush? 'Regime change in Iran.'"
