Ian Welsh calls Syria for Assad

A short piece with very informative comments. This quote caught my eye:

Hizbollah may, today, on a man for man basis, have the best soldiers in the world. They don’t have as much heavy equipment as many militaries, but they are skilled, seasoned and they have very high morale. They believe in what they’re doing in a way that virtually no other military does.

Thank The God(ess)(e)(s) of Your Choice, If Any, that they're up there in a corner of the Mediterranean instead of the Gulf, or we would already have lost an aircraft carrier, Van Riper style.
