Hezbollah's distracting and costly engagement in the Syrian civil war has offered some practical benefit to Israelis. It has also been a source of foreboding.

What a twisted series of events. None of this would be a concern if Assad was just delt with as he should.

I'm just hoping not many of these cretins make it back to Lebanon.

It looks like Israeli military strategists need a little more training: The first mistake that most armies make after every conflict is assuming that one fight is like another. They almost always prepare for the last war they fought and get surprised by how different other foes and technology are. For Hezbollah, fighting Israel would be totally different from fighting Syrian rebels, and I'm kinda surprised that Israeli leaders don't seem to recognize this.

All the same, the confidence that Hezbollah is gaining right now may well lead to another war in Lebanon if it can't be bled dry in Syria and then destroyed by other Lebanese factions. I'm glad Israel is preparing.

i've been telling you guys since 03 that they don't need to learn battle skills. they are teaching battle skills to the syrian army. they are entering these towns and going block to block, building to building and door to door.
i told everyone that the rebellion was over the minute islamic resistance joined the fray. hezbollah is intercepting drug and money shipments in the high seas and switching them from boat to boat to boat. all in the high seas. that's special forces capabilities. these guys are no joke.
and you guys want to close guantanamo. hell no!!!!!!!!!!
hezbollah has reservations in guantanamo payed for by the blood of marines in 1983. we're holding those reservations.
