And now, Hizbullah will have even better weapons

“Iran has recently made significant advances in the development of its weapons industry, including precision-guided rockets and missiles, cruise missiles and drones. Israeli intelligence has observed a leap in Iranian capabilities, which are now being extensively distributed to other parts of the radical axis led by Tehran in the Middle East, including Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Assad regime in Syria, the Shi’ite militias in Iraq and the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Intelligence officials say that for the first time, the Iranian arms industry has become an industry encompassing the entire radical axis. One unit from the Revolutionary Guards, Unit 340 of the Quds Force, is responsible for the research and development that serves all the terrorist and guerilla organizations operating with Tehran’s patronage and financing. The knowhow gained by the Iranians is quickly and effectively relayed to their proxies throughout the region.’ haaretz

Comment: The picture above is of some of the old stuff, but, Pilgrim Turcopoles, the old stuff will kill you just as dead as the new stuff. People I know in Lebanon keep me abreast of the ever growing Hizbullah arsenal. It grows and grows both in number of munitions on hand and in a steady stream of product improvements to such things as anti-tank missiles, triangulation radar for counter-battery fire against Israeli artillery and short range ballistic missiles.

The Hizbullahis are committed to their Iranian allies as is the SAG. IMO, a serious Israeli move against Iran will trigger a massive war with both HB and the SAG. Such a war would affect Israeli civilian population centers and will result in mass emigration from the country. pl

    • Pat Lang says:


      Thought to be somewhere between 200,000 and 500,000.

      • james says:

        thank you… i guess all the rest have russian passports, or did they give them up when they left?? i know a few of those ukrainian oligarchs have dual passports…

        • Pat Lang says:


          Some were born there, like we were born in N. America. A lot of those who left the USSR claiming to be Jews had a Jewish grandmother.

    Whilst the Yemeni manufactured versions of the Iranian missiles are now almost daily testing some of the best Western air defences in Saudi, providing useful feedback. Many get through, six drones last night hitting Aramco in Riyadh, damage that even the Saudis admitted on their TV as it must be hard to hide a smoke plume.

    All those years of money wasted on munitions that could have been spent on agriculture, industry, education and mutually beneficial trade. Sad.

    Probably the Israelis who would emigrate under the severe war situation envisioned in this possibility-scenario . . . . would be the ones who voted for Rabin and/or would vote for a Rabin-figure if such existed anymore.

    The Netanyahoodlumites would mostly stay and the Israelis who think Netanyahu is a weak liberal will stay too. They would be committed to whatever vision of total war they could sustain, but meanwhile their opponents and adversaries will see them lose sympathy and support here and there. Those opponents and adversaries may well decide to hold their fire so-to-speak, and let Israel further self-corrode from within.
