Iraq militants export violence to neighbors

From Michael Moss and Souad Mekhennet of the New York Times

Militant leaders warn that the situation in Lebanon is indicative of the spread of fighters. "You have 50 fighters from Iraq in Lebanon now, but with good caution I can say there are a hundred times that many, 5,000 or higher, who are just waiting for the right moment to act," Mohammad al-Massari, a Saudi dissident in Britain who runs the jihadist Internet forum, Tajdeed.net, said in an interview Friday. "The flow of fighters is already going back and forth, and the fight will be everywhere until the United States is willing to cease and desist."
