As I understand it Hezbollah in Lebanon is composed mostly of Lebanese. The party truly and ultimately responsible for what's occuring along the border is the Lebanese government. They should have disarmed Hezbollah as soon as the Syrians left.

Some say they didn't have the forces to do so. I reject that position. Hezbollah's militant numbers are nowhere near the size of the Lebanese army.

Muslim nations throughout world have to put an end to these private armies and militias. All nations are responible for the internal security of their territory! That's international law 101.
