    BEIRUT (AP) — A roadside bomb blew up next to a United Nations convoy carrying French peacekeepers in south Lebanon on Tuesday, wounding at least five of them in the second attack on the U.N. force in two months, the United Nations said.

    The bomb went off at the southern entrance of the port city of Sidon as a U.N. convoy with several vehicles was passing by.

    The U.N. Security Council called the bombing a "terrorist attack" and condemned it "in the strongest terms." It also condemned all attempts to threaten the security and stability of Lebanon.

    Terrorist attack? It was not a terrorist attack. Foreign troops are legitimate targets.

    Hezbollah, Syrian rebels in worst clash in Lebanon
    Jun 2,`13 -- Syrian rebels and Hezbollah guerrillas battled Sunday in their worst clashes yet inside Lebanon, a new sign that the civil war in Syria is increasingly destabilizing its fragile neighbor.

    Mr Tinsy-----are you declaring UN peacekeeping troops as
    legal targets of terrorism because you wish to describe
    them as "FOREIGN TROOPS" ?? Has the government
    of Lebanon demanded the expulsion of UN Peace Keeping
    agents? I do recall one of the first actions of the very
    heavily ARMED Gamal Abdul Nasser did to provoke the
    1967 war was the expulsion of UN peace keeping forces.

    They did simply leave-----nasser did not resort to murdering
    them.

    I am interested since it seems to me that lots of people
    believe that the UN can INVADE and IMPOSE. My
    impression is that it cannot

    Tinny, it's so good to see your high regard for international law. I thought for sure that the Lebanese government had agreed to allow the UN peacekeeper forces into the territory?

    So now you are cheering for people to go against the government in Lebanon and attack people who are ONLY there to help, and by government's invitation.

    What has the Lebanese government done that you think is wrong?

    It certainly appears that Tinny is voicing support for an al-Quaeda affiliated group.

    And he's made nasty noises about 'Zionist Jews' being less than loyal to the US.

    My fellow pots, I think Tinny is the kettle!

    Mr tinsy ---is a one trick pony-----he is very proud of his one
    and only trick-----a claim that a some time in the 1920s ---
    the borders of a land mass was determined and the place
    called "palestine" as per the name given by the romans
    to the savaged Israel/Judea. The fact that this land
    mass was defined and so named----means that a group
    of people who came to call themselves "palestinians"
    in the 1960s OWN IT ----lock, stock, and barrel and
    RETROSPECTIVELY ----even though as arabic speaking
    people----they cannot pronounce it-----and call it
    "BALESTINE"

    Kinda like claiming that the little drama "AN AMERICAN
    IN PARIS" rendered PARIS ----a city of New York State

    My own husband ----has stamped on his official papers---
    the word "PALESTINIAN" ---from when he was an infant---
    but neither he nor his family are "palestinians" ---
    according to tinsy----in fact according to tinsy---they are
    all "FOREIGNERS" and OCCUPIERS -----and best of all--
    Jesus of Nazareth was LITERATE IN ARABIC----some 300
    years before arabic began to have a written alphabet----
    which proves -----MIRACLES DO HAPPEN INSIDE THE
    HEADS OF IDIOTS
