Obama sending light attack aircraft to Lebanon/Hezbollah

From the Xinhua News Agency:
The United States expressed readiness to provide Lebanon by 2013 with aircraft designed for light attack, the local daily As Safir reported Friday.

The report said the Pentagon has proposed to provide Lebanon with Hawker-Beechcraft AT-6 or Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) Super Tucano planes to improve its capabilities in reconnaissance missions and counter- insurgency operations.
Reconnaissance missions and counter- insurgency operations? Hmmm, what kind of counter insurgency operations are they referring to? Lebanon doesn't need weapons to defend itself against Syria. Lebanon and Syria have been on good terms with each other ever since Barack Obama became President. Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, realized he had no choice but to reconcile with Syria after George W. Bush left the White House and Barack Obama, the new US President, began to forge a new relationship with Syria [Obama is preparing to send an ambassador to Syria for the first time since 2005, when the US withdrew its envoy from Syria following the assassination of Rafic Hariri].

Hezbollah is now officially part of the Lebanese government, and the Lebanese/Hezbollah alliance couldn't be any tighter than it is at the moment. So clearly, these attack aircraft are not intended to be used against Hezbollah.

But of course, Hezbollah could use these aircraft to strengthen its own military/terrorist operations... Hmmm...
The proposal came during talks between Lebanese Armed Forces ( LAF) delegation and U.S. military officials in Washington. A LAF delegation, headed by Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr, is currently on a visit to Washington.

[Lebanese Defense Minister Elias] Murr met with several U.S. officials including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Thursday, according to As Safir.
Give President Obama credit where credit is due. He is taking full precautionary measures and doing everything within his power to make sure Hezbollah is safe and secure.

Survival group against God?? LOL. Good luck with that. Truth is, no one knows the exact time this will happen except the man upstairs, however, I firmly believe that there are people placed here by God that post the warning signs and it's up to you to take heed.
