Hezbullah could take over Lebanon in two hours

I reported a few weeks ago that Hezbullah has conducted a drill that shows that they could gain control of large parts of Lebanon in less than two hours. The real concern is that if the Special Tribunal for Lebanon concludes that Hezbullah murdered Rafik al-Hariri - as appears likely - Hezbullah could put that plan into practice.
Should the Canadian report be based on genuine information from the STL, Hezbollah might act with force to take control over Lebanon. With the Hezbollah in power, Lebanon might turn into becoming an active part of the Iranian Shiite sphere of influence- the so-called “Shiite Crescent”. This will create a highly sensitive situation: Syria, which regards Lebanon as part of its geopolitical domain, never having accepted the colonialist post WWI Anglo-French agreement, which made Lebanon into independent statehood, will no doubt react negatively on any trespassing into its traditional protectorate.
Will they? Will Iran and Hezbullah go to war against Syria? Or will Syria just accept Iranian domination of Lebanon? (We had a story here this week that claimed that Lebanon is becoming an Iranian satellite). Hmmm.

They could.

But its much easier for Hezbollah to run Lebanon behind the scenes.
