Italy Threatens Israel



You know that agreement the U.N. passed, that line in the sand that says 'Do Not Cross'? Ya know that cease-fire thingy! If your not already aware, it might interest you to know it has been violated already. There was a "raid" in the Bekaa Valley to disrupt "weapons shipments" from Iran and Syria and there was an air strike in Baalbeck which Israel denies. So with the words "Fragile Ceasefire" posted all over the news how do the foreign peacekeepers feel? Italy todayhas threatened to not send peacekeepers "If Israel keeps shooting". You might be thinking "who cares if Italy withholds peacekeepers" well if you are then your a dumb ass because Italy has offered 3,000 troops, more than any other country, they have the leverage to threaten, mostly because Israel's demands of the cease fire revolved around peace keeping troops moving into south Lebanon. So what will happen next? Israel will throw the Italian troops a couple loaves of bread and a slice of garlic and they will happily march into south Lebanon. This wont turn into anything, Italy is just marinating in their opportunity to throw some weight around at Israel.

I am always cunfused as to what the UN peace keepers are willing to do to keep the peace. They seem most unwilling to send troops any where that is not already peaceful, thus defeating the purpose. They absolutely will not shoot at anyone, ever. They are only good for encouraging prostitution in the local population. The Australians seem to be the only soldiers that would actually shoot at Israeli or Hizballah troops to keep the peace. The Aussies should form an international army that sends peacekeepers on an as needed basis.

Yep, the Murdoch mercenaries. The go to guys for peace. I keep thinking of the Rawandans killing the peacekeepers and throwing their bodies over the compound wall. The peacekeepers had guns and the Rawandans had machetes. Nuts.
