This meeting was a missed opportunity for an airstrike.

A Lebanese source told Al-Sapir that despite the rift between Hamas and President Bashar Assad's regime, Nasrallah and the Islamist group's representatives agreed that military intervention in Syria would not resolve the crisis. They called for the introduction of political reforms in Syria, in accordance with a Russian initiative that is also backed by Iran and China.

The troublemakers of the world (Chavez is probably feeling excluded and upset), colluding together on one important geopolitical spot. Doesn't sound ominous at all.
