This Lebanese reminds me of Bush's mentality, his quote:
No borders to our self-defense

But Abu Ali framed this struggle in broader terms, drawing on the deep anger among many in southern Lebanon over lack of support from Arab governments and, more sharply, the perception that the United States has encouraged the Israeli attacks.

"We're now fighting a war against America, not just Israel," he said. "We see these are American decisions being carried out." Asked what that meant, he paused, then answered: "There are no borders to our self-defense."

Along the streets into Jwayya, the destruction was everywhere -- from cratered roads to collapsed buildings.

"They'll destroy and we'll rebuild," he said.

This is a great article, from someone on the gorund with Hizballah people...

1. Sounds like a freedome fighter: "Hezbollah militiamen talk of victory"
That's the actual title to the article. Sounds like someone with courage and conviction...NOTHING like the Chimperor. Perhaps you should re-read the article.

2. I agree. It doesn't sound like bush at all.

My bet is that the speaker has actually seen combat; unlike bush whose only seen combat in John Wayne movies.

Also, his statement: "The aggression gives birth to resistance," rings true. After all, Hizbollah was born through Israel's previous aggressions against Lebanon.
