              The French....Again
The French were one of the countries most strongly pushing for the cease-fire resolution, promising to lead the International force that would come in to south Lebanon and disarm Hizbullah. Well, as most French promises this one wasn't even worth the paper it was written on. The French have now displayed their commitment to the cease-fire and the UNSC Resolution by promising to send 400 soldiers - from an engineering battalion - to lead this joke of a force. Additionally, before sending these "fighters", they also
called for safety guarantees for its soldiers before making further commitments.
The UN Resolution is basically dead. It will have the same effect of disarming Hizbullah or helping the cause of peace as all the other previous Resolutions. And once again, we see how useless the UN and the French really are.
