    Nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    Syria runs Lebanon for Iran. They were forced to remove their uniformed personnel after the Cedar Revolution, but they replaced them with covert operatives who maintain Syrian control of the country and provide the conduit by which Hezbollah is supplied. In return, Hezbollah suppresses the other ethnicities of Lebanon, traffics the drugs that finance much of the Syrian economy and maintains a plausibly deniable but ongoing war with Israel. Undermining Hezbollah would do tremendous damage to Syria and Iran.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
