Reader comment on item: Lebanon's Liberation Approaches

Submitted by George (United States), Mar 11, 2005 at 11:27

My concern is that we (the West) is not prepared to deal with Hezbullah. If Lebanon goes democratic, certainly Hezbullah has no where else to go. My assumption is that they will resort to armed resistence to Lebanese independence, and they probably outnumber the army there. My hope is that Hezbullah turns out to be a paper tiger as most terrorist groups when genuinely confronted (al Qaeda has to ask Zarqawi to attack America? what happened to the 'sleeper cells?').
