Hezbollah steps up pressure on rivals
Sounds like the routine give-and-take of politics, doesn’t it? It’s the same language you’d expect to see in our presidential race: “Clinton steps up pressure on superdelegates to head off more defections to Obama.”
Except in this case, the “pressure” has a body count. Hezbollah’s idea of “stepped-up pressure” is to kill several people to intimidate the survivors.
