KNOWING YOUR ALLIES:

Hezbollah emerges a winner from Mideast turmoil, alarming foes (Laila Bassam, Tom Perry, 11/30/17, Reuters) 

Hezbollah has emerged as a big winner in the turmoil that has swept the Arab world since the uprisings of 2011 that toppled governments in several countries. It has fought in Syria and Iraq, trained other groups in those countries and inspired other forces such as Iran-allied Houthis waging a war in Yemen. [...]

"Hezbollah has gained from the experience of working with armies and managing numerous weapons systems simultaneously - air power, armored vehicles, intelligence, and drones: all specialties of conventional armies," said a commander in a regional alliance fighting in Syria.

"Hezbollah is now a dynamic army, bringing together guerrilla and conventional warfare."

Every step of the WoT has empowered the Shi'a.
