Hezbollah Fighter Admits Iran Training

In case the skeptics are still out there questioning Syria and Iran's involvement in the current war in the Middle East, here's another item for you to ignore or attempt to discredit:
A Hezbollah fighter captured by Israel has told interrogators he received training in Iran and arrived there on a flight from Syria, a tape of the interrogation released by the Israeli army showed on Monday.

During questioning the man also confessed to taking part in the cross-border raid on July 12 in which two Israel Defense Forces soldiers were captured, the incident which sparked the current conflict.

"We trained in Iran," the man, who gave his name as Mahmoud Ali Suleiman, told the interrogator. "We went from Beirut in civilian cars... to the airport in Damascus."

Suleiman, who gave his age as 22, said between 40 and 50 people went with him for the training, which involved instruction in the use of anti-tank weapons. (Haaretz)
Those who dismiss the moniker "Global War on Terror" are dismissive of history and dismissive of current events. We can't let them control our future.
