Where's the Hezbollah boogeyman?

Whenever there's a big conflict, the U.S. government-media propaganda machine trots out some nasty-looking bad guy that we can get upset over, like Al-Zarqawi in Iraq.

In the Isreali slaughter of the Arabs in Lebanon, I've wondered why we don't have a bad-guy poster Arab for Hezbollah.

I think the answer is right here. The head of Hezbolla, Hassan Nasrallah, is just too darn telegenic to make into a propaganda monster.

So, unlike the constant pictures on TV of Al-Zarqawi, you'll never see a picture of this guy.
