Remember, guns don't kill people... people with guns kill people...
As the world pursues a 'peace at all costs' solution to intractable Middle East problems, it appears that the cease fire in effect in Lebanon that calls for disarming Hezbollah is already being gelded:
Hizbullah will not hand over its weapons to the Lebanese government but rather refrain from exhibiting them publicly, according to a new compromise that is reportedly brewing between Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Seniora and Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
Preposterous on its face. We have feared what a long series of half-measures may mean, and here begins the payoff - Hezbollah won't have to disarm, despite the fact they are an armed terrorist entity occupying South Lebanon. How the Israeli government can stand if this is allowed to go forward I do not know - however, we are counting down the days until Netanyahu retakes the leadership in Israel.
In related news, Iran no longer wants Israel wiped off the face of the Earth, agreeing rather that Israel not be exhibited publicly.Posted by MEC2 at August 15, 2006 04:23 PM
