Posted on 01/17/2012 7:56:43 PM PST by TWhiteBear
The Iranian-sponsored Hizbullah has begun its first combat operations in Syria, the opposition said.
Opposition sources said Hizbullah fighters launched Russian-origin BM-21 Grad rockets toward civilian protesters on Jan. 16. The sources said the Hizbullah rocket attack took place near Damascus amid Iranian threats to increase intervention in Syria. Other opposition sources also reported Hizbullah rocket fire.
A thank you note?
and so it begins
Hizbullah is based in Lebanon.
They are acting as Assad's allies -- attacking "civilian protesters".
Presumably, Assad will responds with thanks.
I'd expect some really nasty attacks in the next few days against Shi'ites, and Syria has more than its fair share of various kinds.
They'll be killing men, women, children ~ blowing up mosques, burning neighborhoods.
Any Alawites will probably be trying to get out of the country ~
Watch for Obama to accept "refugees" even though they are the same kind of folk as Assad himself ~ and the very people WE SHOULD NEVER accept.
I don’t pretend to know what is going on in the middle east, I just noted that those protesting against Assad were targeted by Hizbullah so my western mind thinks Hizbullah is siding with Assad, but I don’t know and truthfully I don’t care. I just hope we don’t send any troops there.
Hizbullah is not power to the peeps?
That might be tomorrow.
These things "spiral out of control" very rapidly in the Middle East. Their thought is that if they delay it might be too late to get even.
Those other people are simply available for taxation by his government.
Smile yes indeed
Soon my FRiends
Maybe Iran will start a course of nation building and it will bankrupt them too.
Try Ex lax Watson!
All of them will suffer horrible deaths if they don't seek accommodation in UAE or somewhere to live in exchange for not killing and dying.
All of them.
Hizbollah is an extension of them and Iran...
