A Review of Wikileaks cables on Arms issues, in light of the recent capture of  Syria's Hezbolahs capture of weapons suggests that Hezbolah is already armed with Missils, and is now down to mortar resupply. This suggests Hezbolahs next ofeesnive strategy:

They will launch short and medium range missils in enough numbers as far as Telaviv to provoke an attack a ground attack by Israle to take out launcher sites. As Israeli forces are drawn into Southen lebanon, Hezbolah will deliver a massive amount of large mortar rounds on attachking forces. Hezbolah will then call upon the Arab league, the UN and whoever else will listen to ask for help to stop the israelai invaders.

This has happened before. The difference this time is a possible nuclear equiped Iran, a well equipped uprizing in Gaza.

Nn Ivory coast, where the opposition, which won a fair election but ownes its arms to take power to Iran. Northern Nigeria, which is already under Sharia is being armed by Iran.

Diplomats have attempted to stop a Serbian black marketer selling sniper rifles to Yemen, China selling missile technology to Pakistan, and India exporting chemicals that could be used to make poison gas.

They expressed repeated concern that the Palestinian militant group Hamas was receiving weapons on huge cargo planes operated by Sudan's Badr Airlines.

Despite Sudan's insistence the cargo was agricultural machinery, the United States asked other countries in the region to deny overflights but Yemen declined, according to a February 2009 cable released to The New York Times.

In another, dated April 2009, Egypt accuses Iran of providing 25 million dollars a month to Hamas and links Tehran to a Hezbollah arms smuggling cell.

The cables shed light on how North Korea uses the Korea Mining Development Corporation as a front for its operations, relying on steel and machinery parts from China, Japan and Switzerland and Taiwan.

Diplomatic protests about North Korea's sale to Sri Lanka of rocket-propelled launchers and to Yemen of Scud missile launchers went unheeded in early 2009, cables show, according to The New York Times.

"Chinese banks have been targeted by North Korea as the main access point into the international financial system," said a July 2009 cable from senior US Treasury official Stuart Levey.

But the principal concern appeared to be Hezbollah and Syria, who President Barack Obama has sought to engage as part of his efforts to foster a wider peace in the Middle East.

"Syria's determined support of Hezbollah's military build-up, particularly the steady supply of longer-range rockets and the introduction of guided missiles could change the military balance and produce a scenario significantly more destructive than the July-August 2006 war," said a November 2009 cable from diplomatic staff in Damascus.

A particularly grave concern was that Hezbollah had been provided with sophisticated Fatah-110 missiles, which are deadly accurate and would have the capacity to strike Tel Aviv.

The New York Times said that, according to a Pentagon official, Hezbollah's arsenal now includes some 50,000 rockets and missiles, including some 40 to 50 Fatah-110 missiles and 10 Scud-D missiles.

"The newly fortified Hezbollah has raised fears that any future conflict with Israel could erupt into a full-scale regional war," the report said
