The Irony of it all....

"Europe and the UN want to be taken seriously and they want international law to mean something."

But how can you be taken seriously when you cannot put together a 'peacekeeping' force of 15,000 troops? At the beginning stages, they were talking of 30,000 troops. HA! What a joke that was. They slice it in 1/2 and still cannot get the "world" to even come up with 15,000 troops.

John Hawkins at Right Wing News opines:

"See, this is the problem with the whole "peacekeeping mentality" that so many European nations have fallen into. They don't have very good militaries in the first place and even if they did, they're not willing to fight for anything. Their idea of "peacekeeping" is a bunch of guys in blue helmets walking around with unloaded rifles and trying to stay out of trouble. The whole idea that "peacekeepers" should actually use force if necessary to keep the peace is alien to them. That's why, in a situation like this one, where Israel is demanding the peacekeepers actually live up to their names, Europe is so decadent and weak that they're incapable of dealing with it."

Not much to argue with here.
