1. wishful thinking? thanks to 2015 Iran nuclear deal
Rafi ,   US   (06.29.17)
100's of millions of $'s flowed to Teheran.

Seems hard to believe that Iran is not pumping this $ into Hezbollah military, infrastructure, and social programs in Lebanon.

Iran-backed Hezbollah remains a real threat to Israel... probably a lot more than other way around.

They are doing the job that they are paid to do. Israel should get rid off the Iranian mullahs in Lebanon, and then Hezzis wil get the message. Hezis are just the order takers and nothign else. Get a little tp teh Russians, and they will let the mullahs go in a jiffy. The rest of what is in Lebanon is just a show to keep the stupid mass in check.

4. Hezballah-Syria-Iran weak spot
Avi L.   (07.03.17)
Hezballah-Syria-Iran weak spot is in Syria where they need USSR help to contain rebels.

If Hezballah's forces in Syria are weakened, sunnis will be able to take revenge on shia's from Syria to Beyrout, passing by Beeka.

And maybe also by other minorities who will pass to the strongest side.

Shias are more scared by sunnis militants than by Israel, because they know that such as ex-al Nosra don't play by Geneva rules.

Shias killed Hariri, imposed their rule over sunnis, there are a lot of accounts waiting to be payed in blood.

Will Putin find some advantage in this deal? Will it weaken enough shias to make them dependable on USSR's might and turn them into political clients?
