More Ineffectiveness From The U.N.

NOW can we disband the U.N.?

Despite passing a resolution demanding the disarmament of Hezbollah as a condition of the cease-fire between Israel and the Lebanon based terror group, the U.N. now says that
"under the resolution, their job is merely to assist the Lebanese army in regaining control of southern Lebanon and to ensure the area cannot be used for launching rocket attacks into northern Israel."

Do people understand that the Lebanese army is a joke? Some of their soldiers are actually wearing tin pots as helmets, and nearly all of their weaponry is grossly out of date.

Meanwhile, Lebanese security officials say the army's mission in the south is based on what they call an "understanding" with Hezbollah that the army will not search for and seize weapons, but only confiscate those shown in public.


Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, at a rally last week, "publicly stated that he is out to flout the will of the international community and to prevent the implementation of what was an unanimous resolution of the Security Council." At the rally in the Beirut suburbs Friday, Nasrallah vowed his guerrillas will not surrender their weapons and said: "There is no army in the world capable of making us drop our weapons as long as there will be people who believe in this resistance."

French peacekeepers setting up base near the town of Deir Kifa noted they had encountered a less-than-friendly reception from some residents, who defiantly waved yellow Hezbollah flags. "We mustn't be seen as an occupying force; the people can reject us very quickly," said Col. Jerome Salle. He said the U.N. troops would mount patrols but would not establish checkpoints on public roads, to avoid inflaming residents. Gen. Alain Pelligrini, the French officer who commands the U.N. force, said the peacekeepers wouldn't even act if they saw weapons being carried openly by Hezbollah fighters. "No, I would ask the Lebanese army to intervene and if the Lebanese army has difficulties in intervening, then we would see what we need to do," he said last week.

HONESTLY, why are we giving money and support to the U.N.? WHY?!?
