    Hezbollah, although deemed a "terrorist group" by those whose refusal to abide by UN Security Council resolutions demanding their unconditional end of its operation Litani forced its formation, is in fact a product of Israel's own actions and has every right as a citizens militia to defend its countries border, and most importantly the waters of the Litani from those who have sought to occupy their homeland and tap their resources since prior to its inception. If the US chooses to not provide Lebanon with the means to defend itself, so be it, but by what right does the US have to dictate from whom Lebanon, a sovereign state, obtains the means to defend itself? I'm sure that there are others who are ready and willing to fill the void both militarily and economically as the US recedes into depression, perhaps even China, which is making huge inroads into economies that its Israel makes untenable for the US today. China moving in means that US corporations are going down, down, down... Welcome to the new world order America.
