    But sure, other than that Hez, the terrorist organization, is merely a resistance movement (of Iran).

    Grassroots?

    Certainly it was and still is predominately Shia Lebanese with the primary focus on defending southern Lebanon from Israel. It was formed to force Israel out of southern Lebanon and its forces are predominately trained and equipped for that role.

    Is it funded heavily by Iran, yes of course. Is it fighting in Syria, yes, and I think most people should be glad that it is. The US funding of the Sunni groups in Syria has lead to ISIS or ISIL.

    That's a mishmash of nonsense.

    Hez is not merely funded by Iran, it is Iran. Without Iran, Hez does not exist in any semblance of current form. Iran directly creates, grows and continues to feed in every way possible the terrorist organization Hez and yet you minimize that and claim the US does something you have no direct evidence of.

    In the course of your CT about the US, you openly apologize for Hez and Iran. How nice.

    Oh look, someone who cherry picks history and pretends it says something it doesn't. Maybe you should go back and read why it was to the point of a Civil War in South Carolina (I'll give you a hint, it wasn't the Americans that turned it into the bloodiest state of the Revolution). But even beyond that, what was going on in the South had nothing to do with the Continental Army now did it? You didn't see Greene going down there and getting involved, now did you?

    How about you go fail history somewhere else...

    There is a definition of terrorism. It's not just a matter of opinion.
    I wonder if you were getting so technical when the issue of Mandela being a terrorist was brought up...

    Hezbollah is about killing Jews. It always has been and it always will be. But if you are telling me that, even as we discuss this, brave Hezbollah fighters are rushing into Syria and Iraq to stop the barbarians from beheading more innocents, I'll be delighted to acknowledge it.

    They are not heading into Iraq, as it is rather far from their supply lines, but in Syria, they have been very active fighting against ISIS

    Plenty
    Kurds and Hezbollah bury their dead as they try to stop ISIS | Daily Mail Online

    Hezbollah kills ISIS leader near Syria-Lebanon border: activists

    Hezbollah has put its members lives on the line, and lost some in the fight against ISIS/ISIL.

    Other then to bomb them after giving them weapons what has the US done, what has Saudi Arabia, Qatar done other then to fund ISIS

    Re: In Your Opinion is the PKK a Terrorist Organization?

    What weapons have we provided to ISIS? Please provide a link that supports this bizarre suggestion. Or do you simply have a knee jerk reaction to blame your country for everything (you are an American, right, or are you a member of Hezbollah)?

    And please, let's not portray Hezbollah as on some noble crusade to stop terrorism. They are simply trying to safeguard their own hides. The difference between Hezbollah and the PKK is that Hezbollah would willingly kill every American they could find. The Kurds are primarily interested in killing ISIS.
