Turkish Pilots Kidnapped

This incident reeks of Hizballah. As I argued earlier this week, the organization is facing major pressure both inside and outside Lebanon. Further, the group's modus operandi illustrates that they are in love with this form of calculating, semi-covert warfare. In addition, it takes serious capability to pull off something like this - intelligence planning, combat skill and political conviction (the Turkish Government isn't likely to be happy). Oh... and don't be so sure that those 'pilgrims' (see the BBC article) were actually pilgrims. My related links. Tomorrow, I'll be writing on Iran's new President.
