Amazing photo. I wonder what the Israelis think of Hariri posing in front of Iranian ballistic missiles?

Yes, indeed. And out of all the people, it is Hariri posing for the picture! Things are not as simple as we tend to believe in that tough neighborhood.

The most important point to remember despite the deluded US-Zionist propaganda is the simple FCAT that Lebanon has a pro-Iran Shia majority population. No Lebanese government has dared to hold an independent national census since the 1950's since it would expose the TRUTH that the Shia's now are over 70% of Lebanon's population, largely due to high birth rate as well as massive Christian/Maronite exodus since the civil-war and Zionist occupation of the South in the 1980's till 2000.

Hezbollah and is forerunner AMAL (Movement of Hope) are both popular Shia movements with strong links to Iran, even under the Shah, Iranian influence in Lebanon had grown. Imam Mousa Sadr was funded and armed by regular Iranian military officers who were dispatched as part of UNIFIL after the Zionit Litani incursion in 1978.
The Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 just consolidated Iranian support for their Lebanese Muslim brothers and sisters. Many of the revolutionary Iranian leaders including Mostafa Chamran and vast numbers of junior Sepah officers currently in high command of the IRGC received their baptism of fire in Lebanon, including General Ghassem Soleimani and Jafaari. The Baalbeck Sheikh barracks have played an defining role in training the Lebanese Muslim resistance including Hezbollah into the most formidable fighting force in the Arab world. The influence and high quality of Iranian training was quite evident during the Zionist onslaught againt Lebanon in 2006, when Hezbollah unlike most Arab armies DID NOT RUN but fougth with competent confidence inflicting humiliating losses on the much vanunted US funded Zionist war machine. The fact is that regional dynamics are changing in Iran's favour by the minute. The corrupt Saudi monarchy is in coma as Abdullah is on death-bed and there is an internal succession battle underway in Riyadh amongst the lecherous "al-Saud" klan of 16,000 moronic psychophantic "royalty".

The recent epic visit by Dr.Ahmadinejad to Lebanon and the huge popular turnout and welcome by the Muslims of all hues in Lebanon must have brought Saad Hariri to face the stark reality and accept Iranian supremacy in Lebanon. The fractured Sunnis and the isolated Maronites would not last a few hours against a battle hardened, disciplined and totally fearless Hezbollah allied with Iran and Syria. The winds of change blowing from the Chouf are even obvious to the deluded US/Zionists. The power equation in Lebanon and the Middle-east has changed forever and is based on sheer DEMOGRAPHICS, and no one can do much about it. The US is bogged down in economic meltdown and losing endless wars in Iraq and Af-Pak, and now sabre-rattling in North Korea. Iran is on winner with calm use of soft power and patient strategic foreign policy.
