Hezbollah has reportedly redeployed its forces throughout the region ahead of a possible US strike against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad a longtime ally of the Lebanon- based Shiite terror group.
Members of Hezbollah have disappeared from villages across Lebanon, AFP reported Tuesday, citing Lebanese media and witnesses. The report noted that Hezbollah fighters in strongholds along the coast, in the Bekaa valley, near the Syrian border and in southern Beirut had left town, with many turning off their cellphones to avoid being tracked.
While security measures remain in place, checkpoints around the terror groups nerve center in the capital are now being manned by teenagers instead of regular Hezbollah fighters, the news agency said.
Witnesses in the area around Tyre told AFP there appeared to be a general mobilization of Hezbollah members in the area. On Monday the Arabic daily Al-Akhbar, a paper considered close to both Assads regime and Hezbollah, said the group called on all its officers and members to man their positions.
The Syrian army has mobilized units which had not yet taken part in the civil war, Al-Akhbar reported, drawing an image of drastic changes not only by Hezbollah but also by Assads regime. The two have established an operations room with representatives from both fighting forces, it said.

Surprise, surprise, surprise.
Heck..this makes the Bay Of Pigs look like a high school dance.
If this chemical bombing can be proved to be done by Assad..show the proof. Sadly, after Benghazi I wouldn’t believe it anyway.
If this is about saving face...just say so.
the cockroaches are scurrying ~~~~~~~~*
We are the ones that should consider using chemical weapons .
Kill them all and let Allah sort them out .
We don’t have them to use. We’ve been destroying our stockpiles, per treaty, and have gotten rid of almost all our chem weapons.
Our official stated policy is “if you slime us we nuke you”.
So, if Syria loses some of that nerve agent we are now sure they have in the confusion after we blast Syria, and a terrorist group that uses it on a US target, who does Obama nuke then?
“We dont have them to use. Weve been destroying our stockpiles, per treaty, and have gotten rid of almost all our chem weapons.
Our official stated policy is if you slime us we nuke you.”
We won’t even be able to do that, as Obama is determined to get rid of our nuke stockpiles as well.
now who’s side are supposed to be on?...Hamas, Hezbollah,AlQueda, Taliban?...Russia?...Iran?....Egypt?
To answer the question clearly, the US would hold the Russia's responsible behind closed doors, thus the protracted negotiated public wrangling over US insistence to punish Syria. Israel has also stated over the years that if a proxy group (terrorist organization) attacks them that they would escalate up to the sponsoring states, and in the case of nuclear all the way to capital cities in the west and east....
Gee... I wonder if they’re filling out their proper registration forms before getting their firearms from the....
Oh... wait... never mind....
It would be nice if someone out there was on America’s side.
