Proxy What?


Iran admitted for the first time on Friday that it did indeed supply long-range Zelzal-2 missiles to Hizbullah.

and now:

Iran will supply Hezbollah with surface-to-air missile systems in the coming months, boosting the guerrillas’ defences against Israeli aircraft, according to a report by specialist magazine Jane’s Defence Weekly . . .

So lucky those Israelis: they get their evidence to support justification for war handed to them while we’re still trying to deal with this issue properly so that we can figure out if we have a case for feeling righteous or getting indignant (its all so much rhetoric until then). Iran is confessing ahead of time to what we had to figure out post-mortem with Saddam. If you bought and supported the arguments that were made the first time we waged war against a country that started with “Ira” then you don’t have an excuse not to support the next one (assuming it is coming). Frankly I’d prefer we give a billion to the underground and let them do our dirty work for us, but then there is a reason I’m not working in the EEOB.
