The U.S. government has expressed concern over “mounting evidence” that Syria, Iran and Hezbollah are planning to topple the government of Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora. At the same time, Walid Jumblatt, longtime leader of the minority Druze community in Lebanon, says that Syria is sending arms to Hezbollah without impediment. “As long as the Syria-Lebanon border is not being monitored effectively, the flow of weapons will continue and there will be instability,” Jumblatt said during a visit to Washington. He added that the image of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has soared in the Arab and Muslim world because of the tough resistance his fighters put up against Israel, although Nasrallah still does not command anything like majority support in Lebanon.
I guess that’s why those Syrian arms are so important.
