When the Going Gets Tough - Hezbollah Gets Going

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hezbollah ministers and their pro Syrian allies, when refused the number of cabinet seats in the new unity government which would have given it powers of veto. Is this the real reason for resigning though, or is it because the Lebanese parliament is to debate a UN draft document calling for a tribunal for the [possibly] Syrian killers of Rafik Hariri

    The Link
     
  2. War by other means, if you can get +50% government, bring it down and attempt to win the ensuing elections. Having beaten Isreal (their words not mine) they might think that they could take Lebanon democratically.

    Sdaly, this is the last thing the Lebanon or majority of the Lebanese people need.
     
  3. Five ministers is not 50% of the government though, is it??? Is this a sign of Hezbollah giving up on the democratic process and relying totally on its terrorism inside the Lebanon??
     
  4. I wouldnt be too unhappy if the current Lebanese government fell.
     
  5. The Saudis have bought and paid for Lahoud, it would be very unsporting if Tehran put their man in before they'd had their money's worth.
