Libya, Syria, Hizbullah next?
The pro-imperialist 'Arab uprisings' is aimed at neutralising all opposition to empire and its regional allies, especially against the Syria-Iran-Hizbullah-Palestinian axis, and ensuring the continuing reign of the west's most surest and valued allies in the region such as the Gulf states.
In the run up to an imperialist direct attack on Iran, Hizbullah and Lebanon, like Syria, will be targets for 'softening up', so when the war campaign on Iran starts, the Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian fronts will be that much weaker. At least this is the rather obvious plan of the west.
The Palestinian Revolution is in great danger with Fatah playing a very weak role in the struggle (yes, that is very diplomatic language) and Hamas seemingly moving away from Iran, Hizbullah and Syria towards the pro-western Turkish and Gulfi agenda in the region. However, the Palestinian people are a very revolutionary people, and still have several fighting organisations such as Palestinian Islamic Jihad (very close to Iran and Lebanese Hizbullah), the PFLP and Popular Resistance Committees amongst others.
Are Ban Ki Moon's comments a nod from the imperialist-backed UN General Secretary that a new campaign of pressure and arrogance is starting against Lebanese Hizbullah?
It would make sense in the strategical approach of imperialism, as Hizbullah will have to be 'dealt with' some time or the other, and at a time when anti-Iranian, anti-Hizbullah and sectarian hatred of Christians and Shia Muslims has been escalating through the 'Arab uprisings', it is unfortunately only but a obvious development to now start escalating against Hizbullah.
