(Worthy News) - On his weekend visit to Lebanon, which he portrayed beforehand as “cleaning up for what the previous administration failed to do,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeatedly and unequivocally spoke out against Hezbollah and the Shi’ite terrorist group’s sponsor, Iran.
Despite pushback from his Lebanese interlocutors, Pompeo urged Lebanon to shun a group that forms part of the national government, despite the fact that its very existence as an armed militia violates U.N. Security Council resolutions.
“The Lebanese people should no longer be made to suffer for the political and military ambitions of an outlaw nation [Iran] and its terrorist affiliate,” Pompeo said. “It will take courage for the nation of Lebanon to stand up to Hezbollah’s criminality, terror, and threats.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
