Security Council Adopts Cease-fire: Read It And WeepTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
With great fanfare, the United Nations Security Council late yesterday unanimously adopted a resolution calling for an end to the war fighting between Israel and the Lebanese militia Hezbollah and authorizing 15,000 U.N. peacekeepers to help an equal number of Lebanese troops take control of south Lebanon as Israel withdraws.
Read about it here, and especially about what it doesn't do in juxtaposition with what it does do - preventing Israel from finishing the job it should have done in the first place but failed so miserably at because of political restraints, poor military decisions at the top, a weak and inexperienced Olmert, and an all-talk, no-walk Bush.
Then weep at the defeat for Western civilization at the hands of a weak, Islamist-appeasing international community that has rolled over on its back in the face of Islamic fascism. They have cinched the inevitability of a world war.
We've lost another and very important round to Iran, Hezbollah, and radical Islam. I can hear the laughter in their quarters, already.
Good job guys - not!
