Hezbollah Now Most Powerful Force In Lebanon

Click to Read

Hezbollah Now Most Powerful Force In Lebanon Hezbollah today stands unquestioned as the single most powerful force in Lebanon. By routing government-allied militiamen in hours last week, as the army stood by, it proved it can occupy Beirut at will. Its show of strength forced the government into a humiliating retreat from decisions that targeted the group. And the group itself has ensured that the independence of its sprawling military, political and social infrastructure — deemed a state within a state by its opponents — will remain untouched for the foreseeable future.

As someone Arab who got many Lebanese friends and also knows little bit about Lebanon , I will say that this is because America depended on Losers like Hariri JR "His father was better" and ex-princes of wars whom really do not care about other Lebanese "Jumblatt" and "Gaegae" Hezbollah won because since day one it did not lie when it said it would protect its weapons
