Israel Fears Some US Arms For Lebanon Will Reach Hezbollah


www.easybourse.com

JERUSALEM (AFP)--Israel fears that some U.S. military aid to Lebanon may fall into the hands of Hezbollah, the Shiite militia with which it fought a war three years ago, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday.
"When it comes to Lebanon...we have not much appreciated the delivery of American arms these past months," Barak told public radio. "We fear that a part of this material falls into the hands of Hezbollah."
Barak's comments came after a pro-Western coalition defeated a Hezbollah-led alliance in a parliamentary election in neighboring Lebanon Sunday.

so , the US is playing both sides against the middle? arm israel , then the next year - arm lebanon? Hezbollah are a legitimate organisation (well as legitimate as sein fein - who lots of people in the usa pay money to) , but since it would shift the balance of power towards the middle i can see why theres more and more anit-USA rhetoric coming out of israel nowadays.

they are running scarred or equality.

Interesting article. Let's agree to disagree with regards to Hezbollahs legitimacy.

The US has pumped millions over the last few years into Lebanons military. The second largest recipient of foreign military aid infact (per capita). I wonder how much of it has already fell into the hands of Hezbollah? What's more i would be interested to know how technologically sensitive the systems supplied are?

It amazes me how despite such huge donations in aid, Hezbollah still outgun the convential army.
