|Sayyed Nasrallah: Threatening Us is Useless|
16/01/2008 Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah condemned the bombing at Karantina Tuesday that killed 3 people and injured others. Speaking at a ceremony to commemorate Ashura, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that threatening to internationalize the Lebanese crisis 'is useless and does not scare the opposition'. He also called for preventing the Arab plan from being a step towards internationalization. The Hezbollah chief suggested that bargaining on weakening Syria and Iran or a new Israeli aggression against Lebanon 'could backlash and could destroy the US project in the region as well as those bargaining on it.' "Who said that a war on Iran will achieve America's expectations?" his eminence asked.
"This is not the first time that the US administration promises the ruling bloc with something. They urged them to wait until May, so the February 14 camp was no longer interested in dialogue. The US administration told them that there would be a strike against Iran Syria would be cornered and Syria and Iran's allies in Lebanon would become weak. My questions are: Do you really believe the Americans? What if they are lying to you? Are you sure of the consequences if Iran were attacked? Didn't (Condoleezza) Rice say that the Lebanon War was the birth of a new Middle East? Today, (Ehud) Olmert is struggling to stay in his post. If anyone is bargaining on a new war to gain political advantages, then he is very, very mistaken."
