I hope they did it....

Hezbollah Chief Threatens Israel:
"The chief of Hezbollah threatened Thursday to retaliate against Israeli targets after accusing the Jewish state of killing the militant Imad Mughniyeh in Syria."
It never ceases to amaze me how the Arab mind works. "How dare you shoot back at me for shooting at you!" seems to be their MO virtually all of the time. And then the MSM buys into it....

The Wall Street Journal has it's own take:
Mughniyeh died in a car bombing, probably orchestrated by Mossad, though Israel denies it. It'd be nice to think the CIA was up to this, but we have our doubts. The location -- Damascus -- of his killing is of special note, and the private intelligence agency Stratfor reports that he died as he was leaving a meeting at a Syrian intelligence office. Syrian officials surely knew of his whereabouts and could have arrested him if they really wanted some accommodation with the U.S. At least Mughniyeh will kill no more.
