No Surprises Here

Hizbullah refuses to disarm in south Lebanon

Jerusalem Post

The Lebanese government was scheduled to meet on Sunday to discuss the disarming of Hizbullah south of the Litani River, but postponed that meeting following indications by the guerrilla group that they would not do so.

Hizbullah's refusal was conveyed to Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora through the group's representative in the Lebanese parliament, Nabih Berri.

This is despite Lebanon's Prime Minister demanding that Hezbollah disarm.
Hezbollah has created a "state within a state" in Lebanon and must be disarmed, the country's Prime Minister says.

Fouad Siniora said the Shiite militia had been doing the bidding of Syria and Iran, and could only be disarmed with the help of the international community once a ceasefire had been achieved.

"The entire world must help us disarm Hezbollah. But first we need to reach a ceasefire," Mr Siniora told Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Are we once again about to see how toothless the UN and its resolutions are?

Hezbollah has created a "state within a state"

I know that the phrase is overused, but "A house divided against itself cannot stand."

Hezbollah is declaring victory, of course.

As for the U.N., as I've said before, the U.N. Building in NYC is a waste of valuable real-estate.

Unfortunately AOW...I believe that this is a victory for Hezbollah. They have stood up to Israel's army and were still capable of attacking northern Israel. The only way Israel can claim victory is if Hezbollah is completely disarmed.

I am with Crusader on that one.
It is imperative that Hezbollah is disarmed.

I cant stomach another word about the UN..I'm gunna hurl!...There NEVER should have been a cease fire till Hez was off the map!

I agree with AC... Unfortunately, the Hez will NEVER allow themselves to be disarmed, and the UN of course will not enforce their resolutions.

Israel has lost for now.
