US and CESM’s Reach Agreement On UN Deal

Quite frankly, I do not think much of it

France and the United States reached a deal Friday on a final draft resolution that would authorize the deployment of 15,000 U.N. peacekeepers in south Lebanon to support a Lebanese force as it takes control of the region and Israel withdraws.

The draft, obtained by The Associated Press, would ask the U.N. force to monitor a full cessation of hostilities and help Lebanese forces gain control over an area that has previously been under de facto authority of Hezbollah militias.

It emphasizes the need for the "unconditional release" of two Israeli soldiers whose July 12 capture sparked the latest war, but does not make a direct demand for their freedom.

Additionally, it calls on Israel and Lebanon to agree to a long-term solution under which Hezbollah would be disarmed.

The Security Council was expected to vote on the draft later Friday.

I'm usually behind John Bolton, but, unless there is something that we are not being told by the press (imagine that!), this Resolution will esentially give Hezbollah a chance to reconstitute its power. Again. And put the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey French a stake in the peace keeping force, which has already been implicated in taking Hezbollah's side, as well as shielding them

And Yassar's buddy Kofi?

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan also expressed frustration that the council had yet to take action.

"I think we've had enough discussions," he said. "The issues have been discussed all around and it is time for decision, and I hope the council will take firm action today." 

How'd that work with Rwanda in 1994, Kofes?
