According to the "Think Progress Website" Richard Armitage told NPR in an interview that he thinks the bombings in Lebanon will end up empowering Hezbollah. No other major media outlets have yet reported on these remarks.
If I thought that this air campaign would work, and would eliminate Nasrullah and the leadership of Hezbollah, I think it would all be fine. But I fear that you can’t do this from the sky, and that you’re going to end up empowering Hezbollah, and perhaps introducing an element into the body politic in Lebanon that will take some great period of time to recover from.Think Progress has the audio on their website if you want to listen to his entire interview.
