These esteemed members of Congress and their defenders, of course, will say that Syria and Iran have been demonized and their roles as sponsors of terror greatly exaggerated. Well, on that point, at least, I'm glad Hizballah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah has cleared things up:
Moving to the issue of Iran and Syria, Nasrallah emphasized the integral role which both states have played in strengthening and assisting the guerilla organization.Right, then. Any more questions over whether Iran and Syria are bad guys?
"Iran assists the organization with money, weapons, and training, motivated by a religious fraternity and ethnic solidarity," Nasrallah said. "And the help is funneled through Syria, and everybody knows it."
