The United States fears the Iranian-backed Lebanese militant group Hezbollah may be planning imminent attacks in Europe and around the world, a senior security official in Washington said Friday.
“Our assessment is that Hezbollah and Iran will both continue to maintain a heightened level of terrorist activity and operations in the near future,” said Daniel Benjamin, the US State Department’s counter-terrorism coordinator.
“We are increasingly concerned about Hezbollah’s activities on a number of fronts, including its stepped up terrorist campaign around the world,” he said.
“We assess that Hezbollah could attack in Europe or elsewhere at any time with little or no warning,” he warned, in a conference call with reporters to announce US sanctions against Hezbollah, Iran and Syria.

All I'm trying to get across is that whilst I don't think that there will definately be an Iranian backed Hezbollah terrorist attack in Europe I do however think that considering past events etc it would be folly to dismiss the possibility out of hand and it warrants real consideration.

or if they have the #ing balls china or Russia, just to throw a kink in their backing the intended targets. How ever I predict a MW2 type scenario playing out if that went down.
