Hezbollah Fighters Are Fed Up With Fighting Syria’s War

BEKAA VALLEY, Lebanon — They joined to fight Israel in Lebanon, but after multiple combat tours in the Syrian cities of Aleppo, Idlib, Latakia, and around Damascus, Hezbollah reservists tell The Daily Beast that they are no longer willing to die in Syria’s unending, bloody civil war.

As a result of their refusal to continue volunteering to prop up the embattled government of Bashar al-Assad, they say that the Shia Party of God has cut off the money they were accustomed to receiving: reservist paychecks and permanent family benefits packages. What other consequences there may be remain to be seen.

    Even for Allah’s soldiers. Ha, ha, ha.

      Are they tired of being muslims?
      Then they should have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up.

        It is definitely true that the Russia-Iran-Syria-Lebanon-Iraq corridor is the force for good while NATO, Turkey and even Israel have attacked Syria and are for continuing the US wars. Nationalists such as myself understand that the wars have to proceed forward because of US hegemony and protecting the US dollar.

        Even the claims of Iran building a nuke are from Memri, which has been claimed and proven as an organization which fervently lies about Muslims and is about a clash of civilizations. People should stop supporting this claim because Iran is building up its economy. As people should also note, tearing down is a lot easier than building up. Nothing can be further from the truth on that point.

    I tend to not support the right wing nationalists but as a centrist nationalist I have to agree with Nick Griffin back in 2012 when he stated that the UKIP and the EDL are globalist populist organizations which seek more war, conflict and are about a clash of civilizations. They also support much of the same policies of the mainstream economic programs by wanting more free trade initiatives.

    Nationalists are about the nation and about trying to stand and understand that all nation is above all else. Nationalists oppose foreign wars for the most part and care about the society and about doing best for it. While the globalist left and right and centre and yes even UKIP is right wing globalist want the New World Order and are about bringing world war in the worst situations.

    Which is why nationalism to me is the only way forward, whether it be left, centre or right wing nationalists.

    Which is why globalists have to be opposed to have resolutions to problems. Globalists will just continue serving the corporations and continue opposing the nation-state and will be about letting conflicts continue until the final destination whatever that means.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQJFouy-T90 – Here is a sit down interview showing much of what Nick Griffin stated when the BNP was strong.

      Of course I support the Canadian Action party and I think a mixed economy and ending free trade is the way forward.

        I support the next Western Canadian Separatist party.

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          Well you are entitled to support anything you want. I oppose Trudeau. I believe it was a coronation but the conservatives were corrupt. I want a system with state funded elections so any party can win, and a system where money is taken out of politics.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I actually like Russia’s political system. All the parties there are massively different varieties and it uses proportional representation. I think the Canadian system would benefit from having independent media and independent voices and that way individual members would be supreme rather than the party leaders.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Independent media caused me to snorfle.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I oppose CBC, CNN, Rebel, CTV, Fox and any political network. I like PBS, TVO and any network that gives voices to people and will invite anyone, especially those without political representation. RT does a good job at exposing the system as well. I am not sure what you think independent media is but it means not favouring ideology to me and it gives a platform and asks pointed and questions pertaining to recent events and does seek out answers people want.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I don’t oppose political networks as long as they are honest about their bias.
            Many aren’t.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            How were they corrupt?
            All I heard was the South Parkian drumbeat for ‘change’ from the media in the last election.
            It was fucking bullshit.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Well I am not a conservative or a liberal or a green or a social democrat. They used taxpayer money to the tune of close to 1 billion for their Action Plan signs. They appointed 59 people to the Senate. They follow their leader. Do not forget about the G20 police state measures. They gerrymandered out West. I think Canada can do better with 308 seats with redistributing seats from more populated areas at different times. I am massively opposed to TPP, FIPA, free trade agreements, and they should be renegotiated. They were promoted as something good and if a nation cannot stand by the systems it has then the nation deserves to go under. Trudeau’s liberals on economics are conservative-lite. The Canadian Action party even states that jobs are few now and that a nation has to aim for a full employment strategy. Every election the party argues people do worse and worse and the party blames the Reagan revolution which was a gift to corporations and free trade proponents.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            They did not gerrymander out west.
            In fact they gave Quebec more seats which they didn’t deserve to shut them up.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Which is why the best way to deal with the seat totals is to increase them gradually after each majority government on a population basis and this should occur once every six to fifteen years. This is not a party policy but something based on smart economics.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            BC and Alberta were under represented based on population per riding and that is why they got more seats.

          • Exile1981

            Actually for years BC and Alberta had been pointing out they were under represented as per the population formula and Ontarion, Quebec and PEI were all over represented. In fact both Quebec and PEI should have lost seats. The liberals for years had refused to update the seat totals because they didn’t want the west to have more seats.

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          I think having more parties is a good idea because if we are a democracy we should stand by that claim and we should support a multi-party democracy.

      Does your centrist nationalism include the importation of Syrian refugees?

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        Nationalists normally oppose immigration and it is in the Canadian Action party. I have been against immigration since 2008-09 due to the financial crisis. The same goes with refugees, but the fact is globalists are the problem and UKIP and EDL are front organizations that seek more war. Blame globalism and not nationalism.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          UKIP opposes the EU.
          How is that not nationalist?

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            UKIP is globalist because they have libertarian tenets and right wing populist tenets. Libertarians are globalists on steroids. Nationalists tend to lean in the protectionist direction and the mixed economy direction and it very much supports state capitalism. You are looking at it more through an anti-immigration lens which is yes a part of nationalism, but I think the economic nationalism aspect is more important than their economic globalism!

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Also UKIP is a pro-globalist nation party. That is basically leaving the EU but still wanting the free trade shell game. They have no plans for jobs without people and people without jobs and the outsourcing.
