Joining us now to discuss something global yes Leland -- -- of the Fox News Channel -- welcome back to kill me inference.
-- good morning between -- and I was shocked to see you report this morning not shocked but somewhat surprising should say.
To see a lot of the rebels going on the record saying that disappointed.
That the US and getting very angry has not done anything really to support them whether it supplies were setting up the safe haven when it comes to the Syrian rebels.
What are you hearing.
Although clearly the Syrian rebels people watching the president of the United States -- -- secretary of state Hillary Clinton saying all of the things about how the odd days are numbered and we don't like what you're doing -- this is a very bad things.
The experience of seeing what happened in Egypt or Mubarak left they -- Libya where there was no fly zone in what -- -- effectively became the close air support for the rebels.
And now they're seen what's happening interior where they're doing the same thing.
From the United States but for the past year the United States -- -- -- -- largely.
Big hit on the sideline -- not -- much the rebels are getting a little bit of help from Saudi Arabia and from the harder.
But the kind of hope that they needed to kind of help that they're looking forward.
To kind -- this promise not just pummeling every morning killing as many rebels of the hand at will developing Libya rebels actually have a fighting chance.
Just hasn't come and for that matter certainly doesn't look but -- like the United States or its allies are gonna step up to the point.
Leland Bill Hemmer terrific worker over there what are you hearing about what would succeed.
Which debuted street has added a young island question and how does that shape up what does that group looked like -- and is the US government afraid.
Of that answer.
Well I think -- like that because nobody knows what -- is most likely what you haven't what the expert -- period say.
You do you have a sectarian civil -- you happy -- right.
Which is president has not -- -- back to our heated by the west of the country for -- brutality.
They are gonna become the hunted rather than the -- -- you have the Shiite to a control by supported by -- -- It -- -- the Sunni Muslims who are supported by Saudi Arabia the only -- -- putting massive proxy war between Saudi Arabia while on.
Never exactly closed minds they are inside Syria with a budget chemical weapons sitting round at the very scary reality for the United States and you might know.
It whenever you have Israel's sitting on the sideline -- They definitely don't we don't exactly -- in president Arafat may be better in fact they think you'd better in the that we don't know.
And you're coming to us from Jerusalem so you're right -- in the middle of the the fire.
One thing I do know that is positive that the reports are correct.
Has was already paying the price with perceived power and ultimately firepower because they have come clean and say we are all forest sot.
Even though Hamas has been for the rebels.
And we understand the Lebanese army is suddenly feeling bold enough to stand up dead look who's occupying certain sections of that country that's good news.
Depending on where you stand remember.
That the Muslim Brotherhood is unity which is Hamas and -- you have Hezbollah which is she so.
That's going to be problems that there -- pieces of what you could happen sectarian civil war I think it -- and on.
Whereas Hezbollah has probably now with a bit more in being willing -- The political and military power is they don't have -- -- support anymore from Syria.
There -- certainly dominating force in Lebanon and make no mistake -- it tomorrow Hezbollah wanted to marched through the middle of downtown Beirut they would.
-- -- for a much longer of the money shut off who's this guy is Sunni prime minister right -- high job who says I was forced to take that job.
He -- gone to Jordan along with four other cabinet now are two of the cabinet members how significant with the ramifications.
Probably it's one of those -- that the United States and its allies want to make it big deal about why he needs sort of -- and you know what not.
Crumbling people are reading this -- hugely -- All the ground it doesn't really matter the prime minister speed is leading the fight because it -- his generals.
Going out and slaughtering their own people whether.
A couple of the civilian authority to control.
Whether the -- talk about any electricity he can find somebody else to do that essentially good guy is making a power play for himself.
He's put himself that line to be the prime minister when the rebels -- highest ranking guy.
-- -- -- -- He's the guy who gets the job on the way out.
Did we saw that would be -- -- -- play out other places whether or not that's gonna play out here.
Who knows but in terms -- actually any kind of meaningful -- actions.
How Syria we haven't seen and no it is not -- -- skater.
One more question Leland broad question here is the Arab Spring has gone in the summer than winter -- now.
Summer and fall again that you mentioned Libya and Tunisia is in that mix too in Egypt -- the -- do we have an idea.
In a broad sense is you and as you canvassed these countries now as to where they're headed.
-- after the trauma they have been through as a people.
Well you have to look at it from two perspectives that -- that that question everyone's asking in Washington asking here Israel is what how does this strategic map of the Middle East changing.
You could argue in many of these countries they're better off it internally in Libya you don't have a dictator -- In Egypt you have a democratically elected president on the other hand when you look at it.
From the -- -- sense of sort of the strategic balance.
Egypt is now controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.
What about tribal warfare.
