      Hezbollah chief Nasrallah criticizes LAF for not accepting Iranian arms,
      dismisses calls to disarm his group.

      Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah on Wednesday gave credence
      to the idea that the Second Lebanon War created mutual deterrence
      between Israel and the guerrilla-terrorist group.

      "What is protecting Lebanon today is the balance of resistance, a
      balance of terror," the Hezbollah strongman said in a televised speech,
      the Daily Star reported.

      Nasrallah also derided the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF), both dismissing
      calls to put his fighters and weaponry under LAF control, and
      criticizing the Lebanese government for refusing to accept arms from Iran.

      "We all agree that we want a strong army, but is the government [now
      willing] to accept weapons from Iran for the army?" Iran, he continued,
      is willing to equip the LAF as it does for Hezbollah but the government
      will not accept the materiel due to objections from the United States.

      The US is a major arms supplier of the Lebanese army.

      The optimal defense strategy for Lebanon, Nasrallah said in a televised
      speech, "is to have a strong army, a strong resistance party and
      complete coordination between the two," the Daily Star reported.
