Nasrallah calls US bluff on creating an “Alternative Shiite” party in Lebanon

A very interesting argument vis-a-vis the constant American demands and desire for a “Shiite Alternative” to Hezbollah. Now Nasrallah is saying, that’s essentially what we will allow by going ahead with a proportional system. An interesting rhetorical move certainly that helps to undermine the US stance. In the end if the US actually supports a Shiite alternative to Hezbollah (and Amal), why are its allies on the ground rejecting a system that would have a decent chance of delivering on that, he asks?
