Hezbollah has increasingly linked its position of power in Lebanon to the survival of the Assad regime.

It might start using a U.S. attack as a pretext, but Hezbollah will already do whatever it can, whenever it can do it. I don't think it's holding anything back to unleash in retaliation for anything anybody does to it now.

If they do attack, I hope Israel gets rid of them once and for all.

Thanks, some call it a fluid situation, I just think it is confusing.

"Hezbollah, however, has stayed relatively quiet, save for a few condemnations of US plans to strike."

Yeah, talking is what they do well. I do not support any US military action in Syria for myriad reasons, none of them related to what this ridiculous organization thinks. They'd best be more worried about Saudi Arabia's plans for them than ours or Israel's. Whispers are that Saudi Arabia supplied the ricin and I'd think them more implacably opposed to this bunch of loud mouth Shia terrorists than anyone. In the end, even if all other countries stay out of the middle east, they are going to consume each other anyway, as they have been trying to do for 6000 years under various names and ideologies. When the oil runs out, all they will have left is their hatred of each other. Can't eat that. Though they may well try.

it's time to get out of the middle east and let the muslims do what they do best and that's fight each other.
there is nothing we can do that will stop it. they have been fighting for 6000 years and they will keep fighting for another 6000 years unless they all die off.

Don`t belive this tragic started from the regime. It may be have launced from there but strangly enough i don`t think it is either the government or the opposition. This is an act from those who want a WWIII. AND THATS WHY IT IS CRITICAL IMPORTANT THAT THE US AND THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT TAKE 1 STEP BACK, BREATH AND SIT DOWN AND REALLY LOOK INTO THE MATTER. Both Russian AND Iranien should be with the US and Syria so they all together can have talks, investigate the gasing and make peace. They CAN DO IT if all first take a step back.

I also belive Obama does what he does for a reason, namely to engage the international community so the problem will be solved in unity :-)

Regarding evidence I don`t belive in them either. Why would al-Assad take the step to gas his own citizens well knowing that an action like that would make the world go against him and very possible throw him out of his controll, power and richness, AND doing this 1-ONE year (or so) after Obama said he would change his mind IF chemical weapons where used (the famous Red Line). OF COURSE al-Assad would NOT do a stupid move like that! BUT those who want a WWIII would use a situation like that for all it is worth. 2 years with 100,000 killed did not do the situation in the region worse and they now had an fantastic opportunity to escaled the situation to a maximum. I bet they now are not happy because people, governments and so forth using time to analyze and talk about the situation instead of going to war at once. AND they now worry because time is running out and evidence of fabricated evidence (alredy said from 2 or 3 countrys) will see the day of light.

I'm assuming the author is talking about Hezbollah attacking Israel? If this is so, it's what Israel has been preparing to hear.

To bad the french foreign ministry go out and say they and most of the europe countrys agree with John Kerry. IT IS NOT THE PEOPLE OF EUROPE that agree, it is the government leaders!!! And the stupid saying on and on and on again about 100% evidence, evidence solid as concret! Where is it? NO ONE exept the leaders have seen it! If it is THAT solid, why not show us?

And the stupid saying that "if US not intervene, all arabic and asian countrys will do what they want! DO YOU REALLY REALLY BELIVE IN THAT SAYING? Of Course arabic and asian countrys will NOT do more than they have done all the time. The US will NOT loose their respect if they do not intervene. Why is that? Because EVERYONE on this planet KNOW how BIG the US military capasity is, and will still be without intervening.

I really really hope citizens of the US and the people of the rest of the world see with their own mind and eyes that this is a warmongering play and nothing else. Use common sense and you will see through all the nonsens mainstream media and the governments tells you. They play this out in a way that you only get to see and hear what they want you to see and hear..............

This is an issue where we are damned if we do and damned if we don't. I wish the heck that Mother Nature would rain heavily down with it containing a substance that would wash the hatred out of all people who live on the Earth. That it would brain washed them to only showing love to others. Thanks Cal

I think they just want to overthrow Assad but they should stay out of it The next lot may be even worse Egypts no better off they may as well have left them to it There is no easy answer to all these fanactics

Noted. The title of the article is a good question. Even if other countries, (including the U.S.) are asking it, the media's portrayal is distorted. At least most of the media is correctly reporting that only a tiny percentage of Americans are in favor of U.S. military intervention. Gene & Nils made excellent comments, and I agree with them.

As I've been reading, we also need to take a good, hard look at the world banks who are not in Syria, and don't like that fact. It's been suggested by many who have studied the system, that those countries which are "independent" of the world banking system have been targeted. Interesting.

Thought Hezbollah already was helping in that whole mess...do they really need an excuse to do anything??

Hezbollah is the very least of our worries. I think we should be a lot more worried about whether Syria will launch it's hyper-sonic ship killing missiles it got from Russia and kill a few thousand of our sailors and whether Russia and China and Iran will join in Syria's defense, which could well happen. If we attack without UN approval without a clear threat to our country it is a violation of international law and an act of warfare.

who the F cares - the US is no "authority" on ethics - we've used agent orange in Viet Nam and Laos (talk about "chemical warfare") - we tortured during Iraq - so we don't have much of a stand regarding Hezbollah and we certainly have no ethical authority!

Hi Jamie,

I seriously doubt that Russia shared its really good hardware with Syria. Even if it did, the quality-control is such that it probably wouldn't fire. If used properly, however, those missiles would provide a proper test for the U.S.'s anti-missile countermeasures which were designed specifically to stop them. (The supersonic missiles have to be launched from long-range or their on-board targeting will not have the time to correct course properly, and this gives the CIWS time to engage and destroy them.)

Hi Lee,
It's a tough call, but I think Paul Bernardo, serial kidnapper/rapist/murderer of children, might be able to claim moral authority when it comes to Hezbollah. More relevantly, the scale of real U.S. atrocities, relative to the scale of its operations, is tiny compared to the global norm. I could probably list off more real atrocities committed by the U.S. than could most Care2 members and the sad fact is that despite all of those, it can still claim moral authority on the global stage.

I second Colleen Lís comment.
Come on all you crazy war chemists; itís about time that you turned your attention to creating a love bomb!
Anyone else voting for a love bomb?

Hezbollah will definitely retaliate, however, their air power is nothing compared to that of the bullying US.

It is so sad that our countries have come to all this distruction that ends in a bloody bath and there is nothing resolved to keep peace.
