Not Sure "It’s the economy, stupid" Anymore

Well, maybe it’s still just the economy, but certain nagging foreign issues keep popping up. And when they do, who accrues the benefit?

A senior Hezbollah commander suspected in some of the highest-profile international terrorist attacks of the last 25 years has died in an explosion in Syria, Hezbollah TV said Wednesday.Imad Mughniyeh died Tuesday in an explosion in a residential section of the Syrian capital, Damascus, according to Hezbollah’s television station, Al-Manar. Hezbollah blamed Israel for Mughniyeh’s death, but Israeli officials denied they were involved.

“Israel rejects the attempt by terror groups to attribute to it any involvement in this incident,” an Israeli government spokesman said.

Western intelligence agencies long suspected Mughniyeh in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, that killed 63 people, according to a 2001 CNN report. He also was suspected in the truck bombing that year of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, an attack that killed 241 people and preceded the U.S. military withdrawal from Lebanon.

1983? Hezbollah? This is 25 year old, Reagan Administration stuff.

Yes it is, and it’s not going away, even if we have a recession between now and November.
