It’s unclear who assassinated the Hezbollah military commander, Mustafa Badreddine, in an explosion in Damascus last week. He was in charge of Hezbollah military operations. He was involved in the 1983 bombing of the Beirut Marines barracks, killing 241 soldiers, and that was just the beginning of his terrorist exploits.
Discussing that a few minutes ago with host P.J. Maloney on KQV Radio in Pittsburgh, I noted that Israel has always been the first suspect in such assassinations, since Hezbollah was created to fight Israel–but now, with Hezbollah up to its ears in Syria on the side of President Bashar el-Assad, it could be practically anyone. And that’s another sign that the Middle East isn’t what it used to be.
