UN resolutions solve nothing

Lebanese Ceasefire Plan in Jeopardy

The U.N. ceasefire plan is falling apart, leaving the possibility Hizbullah will re-arm itself while Israel's hands are tied by international pressure. - MORE>>

As if we didn't already know this!

The aim of war is VICTORY, and NOT a UN resolution. Get a clue already!

If you worry about the opinion of the "international community" you will fall victim to endless PC nonsense. Nor is the "international community" the standard for determining "the moral high ground."

If UN resolutions could solve anything by themselves, then we could do away with every police department in the world, and just pass a UN resolution telling criminals to stop committing crimes! Just like the law is useless without the police, UN resolutions to control rogue states and terrorist organizations are useless without the military force to back them up.

So the question remains: Who will disarm Hizballah and enforce UN resolution 1701?

Please... PLEASE dont tell me the French!!!

From this morning's Jerusalem Post:

Israel threatens to resume war if Hizbullah refuses to disarm
Aug. 16, 2006 2:09

The IDF will have to resume operations in Lebanon if the expanded United Nations force being assembled does not fulfill its obligation to dismantle Hizbullah, an official in the Prime Minister's Office warned on Tuesday.

Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora and Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah reportedly reached a deal allowing Hizbullah to keep its weapons but refrain from exhibiting them in public. Israeli officials called the arrangement a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which passed over the weekend and was approved on Sunday by the cabinet. - MORE>>

It should now be obvious to anyone with half a brain that the word of the Lebanese government is as worthless as the resolution itself. For one thing, it was not the Lebanese government that was fighting Israel, it was Hizballah. So the idea of an agreement that was not between the two parties involved was ridiculous from the git-go. The whole thing was a non-starter.

Aside from why the Israeli government was stupid enough to go along with the whole Bush/Rice charade in the first place, what is puzzling to me is why the war has not already resumed now that it is obvious the resolution will never be enforced.
