    Gee.... I wonder why the UN and Russia think sending troops to the Mid East is suddenly such a good idea all of the sudden.....

    hmmmmm... now it couldn't be because that there's a possibility that Israel's about to kick the living shit out of Hamas and Hezzbolah?!?!?!?!?

    We sure can't have that! Oh, we all know how the UN is just so unbiased when it comes to matters concerning Israel....

    Strangely enough, the UN has had troops in southern Lebanon for some time now...they were sent there to oversee the Israeli withdrawal decades ago. Of course, like most things the UN does, the gesture was a totally flacid and ineffective effort which accomplished exactly nothing.

    What exactly can a UN peacekeeping force do anyway? Is it going to crack down on Hezbollah? If not they'll just get caught in the crossfire....

    Not likely they will get caught in a crossfire; at the first exchange of mean words, the UN peacekeeping force will withdraw as far as necessary to ensure their safety...preferably in the direction of healthy supplies of women and liquor.

    That is what I was going to post! They need peace 'enforcers' of the resolution posted about above, not 'peace keepers' there hasn't been peace there, ever.

    If the UN wants the war to stop, they need to get a coalition of the willing together and go in with guns blazing. Let's see a show of hands.-----I thought not.

    You mean like when the U.N. created the precious Israel in 1947? Ooops I thought U.N. was evil?
