Is this the "rationale" for Israel/Saudi action? US arming Hezbollah thru weapons donations to Lebanon?

via Free Beacon.
U.S. officials have become increasingly concerned that American military aid to the Lebanese army is arming the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah, which has been amassing a large cache of advanced arms on Israel's border, according to multiple current and former U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Following the resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who fled the country and disclosed that Hezbollah controls the entirety of Lebanon, the U.S. government has continued its support for the Lebanese military, which multiple sources say has long been under the thumb of Hezbollah militants.

The ongoing policy is said to be fueling diplomatic tensions between the United States and Israel, which has found itself allied with Saudi Arabia as the American government advances a host of policies that have contributed to Iran's regional dominance, including in Iraq and Syria.

The Trump administration's State Department is coming under increased pressure from lawmakers and other foreign policy insiders to halt all military aid to Lebanon in light of Hariri's resignation and new evidence that Hezbollah is benefiting from the American arms and aid.

This whole thing is a freaking mess.

We supported moderate head choppers in Syria who were allied with ISIS against Hezbollah who was supporting Syria while at the same time we were arming the Lebanese govt that pushed those same weapons to  Hezbollah so that they could be used in the fight against moderate terrorists that we were supporting so that they could defeat Hezbollah that was supporting Syria???

Our foreign policy is batshit crazy.
