This morning, we have word that Israel, in full compliance with United Nations Resolution 1701, has pulled the last of its soldiers out of Lebanon, settling the fighting between Israel and
Hamas Hezbollah in Lebanon.
At the same time, we have repeated declarations from
Hamas Hezbollah that, despite the requirements of that resolution, they will NOT disarm and consider the settlement of the fighting a “victory.”
The powers who have stepped up to “enforce” the Resolution have stated that they will not forcibly disarm
Nor have the two Israeli soldiers whose kidnapping by
Hamas Hezbollah, after invading Israel, been released.
Tell me again how wonderful the United Nations and its mighty “peace-keeping” powers are. I won’t be listening, though — I’m too busy working on a betting pool on the next Hezbollah attack on Israel, and how quickly Israel will be condemned by the UN for its inevitably “disproportionate” response, and not showing “restraint.”
Update: Throughout much of the above piece, I said “Hamas” when I meant “Hezbollah.” I confused one group of radical Islamic terrorist assholes who want to be seen as part of a legitimate government and kidnapped one Israeli soldier as part of their goal to obliterate Israel with an entirely different group of radical Islamic terrorist assholes who want to be seen as part of a legitimate government and kidnapped two Israeli soldiers as part of their goal to obliterate Israel. I apologize for the confusion, thank those who called me on the error, and invite them to continue to address this posting now that that matter has been clarified.
