On August 17th the commander of the Iranian Quds Force (which specializes in supporting Shia Islamic terrorists and rebels worldwide) announced the formation of a permanent SLA (Shia Liberation Army) in Syria. At first this was described as similar to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Iran helped create Hezbollah (to protect the Shia minority in Lebanon) in the 1980s and continued sustaining the group with cash, weapons, technical assistance and intense hatred of Israel. The problem with groups like Hezbollah and SLA is that they are ultimately working for Iran and that has been very disruptive to Lebanese politics.
