Hezbullah was surprised by the Israeli response when they kidnapped the two Israeli soldiers. They expected a simple prisoner exchange supervised by German officials, as it has been many times before. Hezbullah grabbed the two Israelis from a military area, whereas Israelis were accused of kidnapping Hezbullah officials from their homes.
Anyway, Nassrallah, after a broadcast last night on TV, declared that the next batch of rockets will be flying deeper into Israel; I'm sure that got them Israelis sweating now. Israel is definitely surprised by the military experience Hezbullah has gathered and the arsenal they have amassed. It is making the whole world wonder where are they getting their weapons from and when asked they responded, "We believe where the weapons come from is irrelevant."
Hezbollah leaders previously have denied that Iran was supplying them with weapons, after Israel declared that the rockets raining on them were Iranian. Hezbollah has weapons made in various countries, including the United States, France, China and Russia. "Some of our fighters carry M16s. So you think we buy them from America?" he asked.
Conclusion: What comes around, goes around
