Bulgaria getting cold feet on Hezbullah

Bulgaria is getting cold feet on Hezbullah's involvement in the Burgas terror attack last summer.
Bulgaria said on Wednesday it only had an "indication" that Lebanon's Hezbollah might have been behind a deadly bus bombing in July and that this alone did not justify any European Union move to list it as a terrorist group.
The new Socialist-led government backed away from charges by its center-right predecessor that the Shi'ite Muslim militant group had carried out the attack that killed five Israelis and their Bulgarian bus driver in the Black Sea city of Burgas.
"It is important that the (EU) decision be based not only on the bombing in Burgas because I think the evidence we have is not explicit," Foreign Minister Kristian Vigenin, whose government took office last week, told national state radio BNR.
"There is an indication that it is possible (that Hezbollah was behind it) but we cannot take decisions with important consequences for the EU based on indirect data.
"If we have enough serious proof from other cases, then we will not waver to back such a decision," Vigenin said.
You don't think the Bulgarians are afraid of being hung out to dry by the Americans and the rest of the Europeans do you?
