'Peacekeeping' farce in Lebanon

Editorials/Op-Ed - The Washington Times

"In the wake of the Israel Defense Forces' inability to dislodge Hezbollah's military, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert seems intent on trying to spin his way out of his unhappy political predicament. This will be extraordinarily difficult, given the realities that: 1) Hezbollah, an arm of the Iranian government, remains a powerful, if not dominating, force in Lebanon; 2) neither the Lebanese government nor the European-led U.N. 'peacekeeping force' shows any serious inclination to disarm the terrorist group; and 3) when Israel, acting in self-defense, takes military action to prevent Syria and Iran from resupplying Hezbollah with weapons, it will be attacked by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and other representatives of the international community -- just as it was when it launched such an operation 10 days ago."
