Jane’s Defense Weekly says that Iran has agreed to supply Hizbullah with advanced surface-to-air missiles to bolster its defenses against the Israeli Air Force. Is it true? Hard to say. Jane’s cites ‘unnamed Western diplomatic sources’. And at times like these we’ve got to have our antennae tuned for disinformation of all sorts. But if it is true it certainly won’t end well. And it is yet another moment when you wish there was something such as a United States government interested or even remotely capable of grabbing hold of this situation and pulling it back from the brink.
