Meanwhile in Baalbek...

Read more on Iranian-funded property and construction projects - and the allegations and controversy they've generated - here. A news abstract on Iran's announcement of up to 33 (some of which are harmless) projects in Baalbek can be found here.

Hizballah can pretend they're dealing with the other Lebanese parties [and the state] all they want - when it comes to the real work they're unilaterally doing exactly what they want: from exchanging prisoners with another state to undertaking construction, telecommunication and "defense" projects. Oh and did I mention they start wars whenever they want too?
