U.N. Envoy: Hizbullah Expansion Can Threaten Lebanon

Hizbullah's involvement in the conflicts in Syria and more recently Iraq risks a spillover of sectarian tensions into Lebanon where the Islamic State extremist group and the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front are reported to be expanding, a U.N. envoy warned Friday.
Terje Roed-Larsen expressed serious concern that not only have Hizbullah and other militias continued their activities since the Security Council ordered them to disband in 2004 "but if anything they have expanded." He also expressed concern at the reported expansion of extremist groups, mostly in Palestinian refugee camps.

    Let the Turks get in bed with the Russians and see how much they like it. Let the Russians move into the ME and see how they get bogged down. Let them pay for infrastructure improvements and deal with tribal and sectarian feuds. Putin just thinks he wants to deal with the Arabs. You can’t buy Arabs, you can only rent them on a daily basis.
