The U.S. offers Lebanon twelve Raven unmanned
The United States will provide the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) with twelve Raven unmanned aircraft in the coming months.
Really? I mean who would read this and not think the U.S. intentions in doing its utmost not to monitor Hezbollah and it’s movements.
The U.N. is doing its part rather efficiently, and effectively in keeping the peace, but its not working for Israel to protect it’s border, and hence needs guarentees to feel secure.
Even though the Lebanese Armed Forces are the ones in control of these unamnned Ravens, it’s hard to escape that feeling where they wouldn’t encourage the LAF to supervise activities by Hezbollah. A counter argument would be, Israel already flies over Lebanon freely to supervise Hezbollahs movements anyways.
The offer is kind, but what worries this current post is the intention behind it.
