There are rumblings that Washington is preparing more wide-ranging sanctions aimed at the Jihadist terrorist organization Hezbollah.

These sanctions are well-deserved and overdue. Not only did Hezbollah kill 241 US Marines, sailors and soldiers in Beirut on 23 October 1983, they also participated heavily in the insurgency in Iraq, trained Al Qaeda operatives in explosives in Sudan and have repeatedly murdered Israelis.

Now, using U.S. lobbyists, the government of Lebanon is trying to prevent those sanctions from being imposed.

This shows the degree to which Hezbollah has become the most powerful segment in Lebanese politics.

Also note in the Reuters story linked below that Reuters disgustingly refers to Hezbollah as “the powerful Shi’ite Hezbollah political group.”
