France calls for ceasefire. Big Deal.

Middle East: Showing that France and the UN have no clue other than an enjoyment of creating really stupid resolutions not worth more than the paper it is printed on.

"....The United Nations has floated the idea of expanding a 2,000-strong U.N. force that has been in Lebanon since Israel's first incursion, in 1978. But Israel and the United States say that option is not viable." "France proposed that the Security Council adopt a resolution that could call on Israel and Hezbollah to show "utmost restraint" and begin consideration of a reinforced U.N. peacekeeping presence in the region. The resolution would condemn unnamed "extremist forces" who are threatening Israeli and Lebanese democracies, and call for the release of Israeli troops by Hezbollah and the negotiation of "comprehensive and lasting cease-fire." It also proposes the disarmament of Hezbollah and support for Lebanon to exercise authority throughout the southern part of the country. U.N. Ambassador John R. Bolton challenged France's proposal. "I am not sure that conventional thinking about a cease-fire makes any sense when you are dealing with a terrorist group that fires rockets at civilian populations and kidnaps innocent Israelis," he said."
The 2000 UN troops did squat, what good is adding more useless idiots to take up space and allow terrorist groups to run around? France's resolution amounts to nothing since none of it will ever be enforced. At some point the reality of Hamas and Hezbollah wanting all Jews dead and Israel cease to exist will sink in to all parties right?
