posts on 7/23/2006 9:16:21 AM To Jean & Mayada...sending you both my heartfelt greetings and best wishes to you. I just read Mayada's story and I cannot express enough how very touched I am. Thank goodness someone was able to tell the story so that others can hear the truth. I wrote you both an email on Jean's website and hope one day to meet you both. God bless and much love...
posts on 7/19/2006 4:42:51 PM Aida, I don't have much time so what I'll do is copy several quotes from different articles. It all might seem disconnected, but it's all I can offer now.-The bombs used by Hezbollah were made in China, sent to Iran who sent them to Damascus, that ended up in Syria. - Iran has been sending Hezbollah as much as 250 million dollars to Hezbollah every year. - Iran's support of the Hezbollah's actions against Israel seem to have 2 purposes: to deflect attention about its nuclear program and to position itself as a powerful regional player. - Iran may face sanctions from the UN for the nuclear programs. - While Iranian missile supplies to Hezbollah, either by sea or overland via Syria, were well known, officials said the current conflict also indicated that some of the rockets in Hezbollah's arsenal including a 220mm rocket used in a deadly attack on a railway site in Haifa on Sunday, were built in Syria (Israel did forensics). Iran began buying dozens of the sophisticated anti-ship missiles from the Chinese during the '90s (C-802 cruise missiles) until the US pressured Beijing to cease the sales. Until Friday Western Intelligence services did not know that Iran had managed to ship C-802 missiles to Hezbollah.- Officials said it was likely that Iran trained Hezbollah fighters on how to fire and guide the missiles.- Intelligence reports conclude that a small number of Iranians are currently operating in Lebanon. - If you like, got to STRATFOR, followed by the usual and end with a slash: read also within the red alert, you'll find some very interesting articles.

To Julie...Saddam was horrible,but looking at the how the situation is now it is evident that it is worse than when Saddam was in charge...more people are being killed and the standard of living is much worse.
