War With Hezbollah Imminent--Warns the King

New Warning of Israel-Hezbollah War comes from Jordan's King Abdullah
He called it "Imminent"

A war between Israel and Hizbollah that could spread across the Middle East is "imminent", King Abdullah of Jordan has warned the US. The British Telegraph reported that The king, in Washington for President Barack Obama's nuclear summit, gave his warning after Israel claimed that Syria had handed over Scud missiles in its armoury to the Lebanon-based Hizbollah. His comments, made in a private meeting of the US Congressional Friends of Jordan caucus, were said to be "sobering."
Syria yesterday denied the allegation that it has provided Hizbollah with long-range Scud missiles, (upgraded by three generations since the first gulf war) which would allow the terrorist army to target all of Israel's cities. Syria's foreign ministry said the claims were being used as a pretext by Israel to raise tension prior to a possible attack on Hizbollah. "For some time now, Israel has been running a campaign claiming that Syria has been supplying Hizbollah with Scud missiles in Lebanon ," a foreign ministry statement said, but the statement did not rule out an alternative possibility being raised by defence sources, that Damascus has allowed Hizbollah control of or access to Scud missiles still currently in Syria .
Similar sources say that Syria has trained Hizbollah operatives on advanced anti-aircraft batteries, possibly a more useful tool since Hizbollah – and the Lebanese army - fears the overwhelming air superiority enjoyed by Israeli jets.
The Obama administration voiced alarm, though one source said it was still not certain whether the transfer of scuds from Syria to Hezbollah had actually taken place. "We are obviously increasingly concerned about the sophisticated weaponry that is allegedly being transferred," said Robert Gibbs, the White House spokesman. "We have expressed our concerns to those governments and believe that steps should be taken to reduce any risk and any danger." Again, all that the US offered is talk and alarm.
Ehud Barak, the Israeli defence minister, said that the alleged transfer would alter the strategic balance of power between Hizbollah and Israel, which fought a short but bloody war in 2006. If this is the case, Israel will be forced to act soon on at least four fronts: Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, Syria, and Iran.
