I read the Planet Ubuntu (http://planet.ubuntu.com) for information on Ubuntu and noticed this post (http://oskuro.net/blog/life/lebanon-2006-07-31-16-26) on Jordi’s blog that was syndicated and posted my comments, which I have reposted here as well:
I came across this via Planet Ubuntu and while I disagree with a lot of what you posted here, the biggest part that I agree with is your thoughts in dismanteling the U.N. They have become ineffective and it is not just the “US waving thier veto flag.” Long before this current situation the UN stopped being useful. Remember the Oil for food program that was such a debacle? How about Resolution 1441 that called for Iraq to disarm and remove thier weapons of mass destruction that we are now finding (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,200499,00.html and also try a google search if you don’t like fox news (http://tinyurl.com/kebck)). And we can’t forget the anti-sematic comments the head of the UN recently made (A google search for that: http://tinyurl.com/ee8av)
As to the Hizbollah, they are hiding behind the UN (http://tinyurl.com/fxaee, also do a google search http://tinyurl.com/gqm2b) along with the fact they are dressed as civillians (http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,,19955774-5007220,00.html).
So how would you deal with it? I don’t think you answer the question possed by the first commentor very well.
