That fact France has shown once again what a pathetic ally they are by not committing any serious troops to the Lebanon peace keeping force tells me it is time to totally realign the UN. Europe doesn’t need France on the Security Council if it is going to surrender every time there is a tough job to be done. At least and to show the French what the word ‘commitment’ means. Sadly, we see the lefties in Italy also running scared by that nations offer to help stabilize the situation:
Italy is ready to lead a U.N. force in southern Lebanon if its European partners commit themselves to the operation, which the Italian opposition warned on Monday could prove to be a “kamikaze” mission.
There is very little ‘leadership’ left in Europe, unless you want to include leading the surrender ‘leadership’. It seems much of the West is ready to succumb to simple threats now. Bin Laden may have been right. The West may not have the backbone to fight for itself and what it holds dear. The liberals obviously don’t hold much of anything dear, so they have convinced us all there is nothing worth saving from our once inspirational societies.
