I’m unsure what has gotten into the Hezbollah members of the Lebanese Cabinet – maybe watching so much Israeli news on TV has given them a bit of chutzpah – whatever the case, they have agreed with the majority members in the Cabinet to a peace package.
Hezbollah politicians, while expressing reservations, have joined their critics in the government in agreeing to a peace package that includes strengthening an international force in south Lebanon and disarming the guerrillas, the government said.
The agreement _ reached after a heated six-hour Cabinet meeting _ was the first time that Hezbollah has signed onto a proposal for ending the crisis that includes the deploying of international forces.
Gee everythings all better now!
Except it’s not.
This government has had “control” since the Syrians pulled out in April, 2005. It’s six years after Israeli pulled all of its troops out and 2 since the passage of U.N. Resolution 1559.
The majority of the government has done exactly dog squat in that time and the Hezbollah members of it even less. And none of them have any control over the terrorist wing of Hezbollah.
Pardon me if I don’t piss myself in excited anticipation over this “news.”
