honestly how many things can you lay blame on someone in such a short time before it starts sounding rediculous? not to mention makeing threats just compromises ones position and makes the other party all the more defiant not to mention stubbern (I'm sure the UK at least must have learnt this from the constant fights with scotland and irland..not to mention france..)
especally when the accusations are comming from a government that's known to lie, and that has a proven agenda and disposition toward the target of their intended ridicule
though it may very likely be true.. i don't see why they would need to, hezbollah has been democratically elected into parliment with enough power to weld some actual influence not to mention they stand a good chance of being democratically elected to lead (espcially of late) the country..
it's a pitty nobody seems to learn from the past (the attempts of russia and the uk for example), as the middle-east needs to work out it's own problems without nearly so much interfareance..there's simply too much bad blood that needs to be addressed, before anyone from the outside can start makeing any serious demands with any real impact..otherwise we'll just end up adding more wood..
besides which there's far more pressing matters to have to deal with primarilly finally restoring afghanistan to some sembelance of order and finantial prosperity (that would do so much more to strengthen any dealings with any country in the middle east then anything else at this stage)
