Can Hezbollah Survive the Fall of Assad?

31 Aug

Did this opinion piece in The New York Times, Hezzbollah Survive the Fall of Assad?“make sense to anybody?  Does Ghaddar really think that a phenomenon like Hezbollah is going to be mortally wounded in some way soon or that it will go away some time very soon?  And do we want it too?

“Something fundamental has changed: the Shiite militant group Hezbollah, long Syria’s powerful proxy in Lebanon [a sweeping simplification of the Hezb phenomenon], has become a wounded beast. And it is walking a very thin line between protecting its assets and aiding a crumbling regime next door.”

A “wounded beast” ?  Really?
