Hezbollah is armed to the teeth. Nobody disputes that. The Lebanese Army is the natural counter-weight to that force; indeed, the ONLY possible counter-weight to that force. Nobody disputes that. As it currently stands the Lebanese Army would not last a day against Hezbollah, and nobody will dispute that. So what does Congress want to do? Ans: It wants to further eviscerate the Lebanese Army. It is bizarre thinking, because the only possible outcome is the strengthening of Hezbollah. Why would Congress want that?
