Peter Robinson Interviews Michael Totten

Peter Robinson interviews the self-financed Middle East journalist, Michael Totten. Totten's conclusion that Lebanon will sink into further trouble until there are new governments in Iran and Syria makes perfect sense to me: Hezbollah must be reduced to an irrelevance and I don't see how the IDF can do that on their own. Contrary to J.Michael Cole's view, the people in militant Islamic organizations like Hezbollah, or the Iranian Revolutionary Guards are not fighting primarily over pragmatic concerns: they are theological bigots who will never stop until they are rendered powerless. The earlier four parts to that interview (the one I linked to being part five) can be found in Robinson's archives here.
