The Coming Attack from Hezbollah in Lebanon
The plan for Hezbollah, Iran's proxy force in Lebanon, to attack Israel has been known for about a year. It has its four main brigades entering Israel to capture designated territory while its thousands of missiles lay barrage upon towns and cities. While Syria may or may not join in, the hezbollah leader, Nasrallah, has said they can do it without Syria's aid.
He is right. Hezbollah is armed to the teeth with rockets, missiles from Iran, special training from Iran, anti-shipping missiles. But worse, Hezbollah has gained many of the Libyan sophisticated portable anti-air missiles and anti-tank weapons paying the Libyan transitional government cast for many of the items. Make no doubt about it, they will much tougher for Israeli to fight when the next war starts. They have over 10,000 rockets to fire and could saturate Israeli missile defenses which are spotty. Israel would be hard pressed and the fiasco of 2006 could occur again if they attacked into Lebanon.
The only question is, when will this event come to pass?
