Hezb'allah agrees with Cheney

Ed Lasky
Vice-President Cheney in a recent speech expressed the belief that a precipitous withdrawal from Iraq would embolden terrorists around the world and among the other consequences would be further risks to the safety and security of America's allies in the region-including Israel.

His belief was met with derision in some quarters but not among the "players" themselves. The Hezb'allah represenative in Iran wholeheartedly
concurs with Cheney-declaring that American withdrawal from Iraq would allow them to "walk into Palestine".
