Guess what, there is violence in Beirut! Why is that news, you might wonder? I’ll tell you. If you glance through this article, Clash Pits Hezbollah Against Rule in Lebanon, you’ll find that there is a reasonable chance for Hezbollah, a horribly brutal and violent terrorist group, to gain control of Lebanon. Of course, they would immediately convert it to a safe haven for terrorists from around the world, like Al-Queda, and use it as a base from which to attack Israel, repeatedly, until they finally win and slaughter all the Jews. Of course, if they do win, my guess is that the result will be even worse, because someone will cap a nuke in their ass. It doesn’t really matter who will do it, but there are plenty of contenders.
Israel, an obvious first choice, but they probably won’t jump to be first, although they may toss around a couple of follow up strikes just to be sure. Considering how many countries, like France, are just itching to see their bloody demise, they can’t take the chance.
USA, might happen. Bush has nothing to loose, the military loves him enough to maintain secrecy, and we can probably do it with little chance of getting caught.
Russia, my bet. Keep in mind that Russia is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, and they make a lot of money selling arms to the Arabs. The reason the Arabs need weapons is to continue the low level conflict with Israel. Putin can’t afford to let one side or the other win. Boom!
Syria, another good bet. Face it, there is massive evidence that Saddam either had a nuke or was close to getting one. Lots and lots of stuff made the journey to Syria just before Iraq fell. If they have a nuke, what better time to use it? Not only do they have a great shot at blaming the incident on Israel, but they can keep Hezbollah in check, before they become a dominate force in the area and threaten the Powers That Be in Syria.
Saudi Arabia, my second place bet. Come on, you know the Saudis must have picked up a few big bombs by now. It’s not like they can’t afford them. Add to that, their need to keep the attention of their citizens focused on the Evil Jews, instead of how oppressed they are by the Monarchy. Then mix in a bit of realization that, besides a desire to kill Americans and Jews, most of the terrorist groups want to take control of the entire Middle East and return things to how they were during the Persian Empire. Oh, with themselves in charge of course, which wouldn’t set well with the current dictators of SA. Sprinkle a little control of Mecca on top, and the Saudi Royal Family has an excellent reason not to allow Hezbollah to gain too much power. That reason being, keeping their heads attached to their necks.
I suggest we all spend some time cheering for the current Government of Lebanon.
