    Ramping up the Pressure won't Weaken Hezbollah

    BEIRUT - The Lebanese resistance of Hezbollah has evolved significantly from a resistance movement in the early 80s into a major political and military force, with highly advanced capabilities and worldwide presence. It has also created its own charitable, educational, social, economic, touristic, media and agricultural institutions. As a result, Hezbollah today wields significant influence across the Lebanese community. Recently, some have reiterated that the resistance would soon collapse due to the U.S. punitive measures. However, this assumption is far-fetched beyond reality and the measures will not suffice much longer for various reasons.

    Mohammed bin Salman's awful year

    Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has had a tumultuous 2018.

The Congress and media are likely to be more hostile in 2019. It has been a stunning fall from grace.

Long gone are the days (as when George W. Bush launched the so-called “War on Terror” to believing citizens), when the U.S. government could claim to be spreading (militarily, which is an oxymoron) some sort of enlightened “democracy” across various flashpoints and countries, particularly in Asia.
