Regardless of the occasion, the leader of the terrorist Hezbollah has been making frequent television appearances – even more than most Lebanese politicians – to talk about everything and nothing.
In his latest appearance, he said that “we have the ability to convert our thousands of missiles into precision missiles,” adding, “a long time ago we started manufacturing drones in Lebanon, and those who want to buy should apply…”
Well, the leader of the terrorist party has now shifted from the lie of the “resistance” to marketing. This is what he does best, of course, as he has been marketing lies and empty slogans since his emergence on the scene, in addition to promoting the Iranian project in Lebanon and the region.
Who will buy his “drones,” one of which fell into the hands of the Israelis and contained pictures of Hezbollah terrorists carrying out a silly operation? Who will buy his paper kites while Israel is hunting down his men one by one in Syria, and elsewhere?
Will Hezbollah’s clients” include ISIS and al-Qaeda? Will he offer them special discounts since some leaders of al-Qaeda are based in Iran? These questions may sound sarcastic, but the whole scene is ridiculous.
In fact, the chief of the terrorist party is publicizing the destruction of what is left of Lebanon. It is a reminder of the danger that these terrorist groups pose to our countries, and also evidence of the complete Lebanese inability to confront Hezbollah.
A diplomat tells me that Lebanon is a “complex crisis,” while there are those who think otherwise.
“Lebanon was important to maintain balance with Syria and its destructive roles in the region,” a clever observer tells me. “Syria, as we knew it, has ended, with the destructive roles it played after the invasion of Iraq, its support for terrorism, the assassination of Rafik Hariri, and beyond.” He continues: “Now, we are confronted with the Syrian card, not the Lebanese card.”
It seems that the leader of the terrorist party has understood this fait accompli and is now behaving as the only decision-maker in Lebanon. His illusions have led him to sell “weapons” after smuggling and selling drugs.
Therefore, Nasrallah’s pathetic announcement of arms sales is nothing but a declaration of the total bankruptcy of Lebanon and its politicians. This is sadly the reality of the situation. It is painful, but it’s a fact.
Nasrallah’s declaration is a clear and explicit response to the Kuwaiti initiative, and evidence of the impotence of Lebanese politicians. The only hope for the country, which is now outside the circle of Arab popular interest, is for the Lebanese to revolt against the party and their failed politicians.
Any opinion poll on the Arabs’ backing for helping Lebanon, specifically in Saudi Arabia and the Arab Gulf, will have shocking results. Chaos in the country has reached a point where the leader of the terrorist party came out to market his paper weapons.
Nasrallah’s promotion of weapons does not differ much from ISIS’ announcement of selling oil on the day it pretended to be an Islamic emirate. We have seen many similar hallucinations in our region and their promoters have all met the same fate, from Osama bin Laden to Al-Zarqawi, Al-Baghdadi… Nasrallah is like them without any doubt.
