Lebanon At Risk

The Twenty-First Century's First Genuine Historic WTF Moment: The Lebanese military will fight alongside Hezbollah if Israel invades by ground.

JPost reports:
The Lebanese Minister of Defense warned Israel Thursday that if IDF ground forces are sent into southern Lebanon, Lebanese troops will fight along with the Hizbullah against Israel.

I've been pulling for Lebanon, but their leadership is obviously not up to the job at hand; they apparently so hate Israel that they would rather make cause with the very thugs who've robbed them of their sovereignty for twenty-five years than help clean the bastards out and have a chance at rejoining modern civilization. The Lebanese government earnestly painted itself as unable to control Hezbollah (it's not our fault- we're powerless victims), which would imply some measure of disaffection between the two parties, but that excuse for inaction against Hezbollah now appears nakedly dishonest.

This is a most unfortunate judgement by Lebanon's government. They've shown their hand, and they've chosen the wrong side. As things stand now, if its military sides with Hezbollah, Lebanon will be destroyed.
