Syria is a different fight than the ones in which Hezbollah and its
constituents have engaged in the past. Hezbollah is fighting people who
are defending their villages and families -- a position it knows well
since it is the same position Hezbollah was in when it was fighting the
Israelis in the 1990s and in 2006. It is a new type of war for Hezbollah
and it is still not clear how Hezbollah, its fighters, and their
families will be affected by it. As a result, it is hard to ascertain
the Shiite community's endurance threshold. How many deaths will it take
before people start asking questions whether this has been a just war?
When will the first mother in black who has already lost one son
fighting in Qusair refuse to send her second and third sons to fight in
Rif Dimashq? Time will tell.
