    Yes Hezbollah killed Hariri and tried to kill Hamadeh and El Murr because the three conspired with others to pass UN Resolution 1559 calling for Hezbollah's disarmament. We all know that Hezbollah's weapons are its lifeblood to obtain iranian money to keep its constituency under its control by paying for social services (that anyway the Lebanese State cannot pay for). Without its weapons, Hezbollah is dead. It therefore had to retaliate against those who threatened to kill it. So what do you expect? That they are going to look to their shoes and say "yes sorry we did it we are bastards and now we will play nice"? Hezbollah doesn't loot whatever has not already been looted from Lebanon precisely thanks to Iranian money. So do the Lebanese really want their business to stop? The only solution to this is to stop the Tribunal from delivering the truth that everybody knows. Oh and by the way, Israel's military establishment benefits too from Hezbollah's mildly threatening stance. So long live Hezbollah!
