As We Distance Ourselves from Israel

Via Haaretz:

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Tuesday that Hezbollah has more missiles than most governments in the world, during a joint press conference with Defense Minister Ehud Barak in Washington.

“Syria and Iran are providing Hezbollah with so many rockets that they are at a point where they have more missiles than most governments in the world,” said Gates.

Barak told reporters that Syria was transferring weapons systems to Hezbollah and that Israel is closely watching the developments, though he assured Israel did not plan to provoke a conflict.
