Not exactly sure who's actually quoted there, although it's most often attributd to Albert Einstein.
Looks like Israel is going to agree to a cease-fire.
Just out of curiosity, how many cease-fires has Israel agreed to so far? Have any of these cease-fires resulted in lasting peace?
Yet, here they go again.
There is one way that this cease-fire is going to result in peace. That way is for the UN Peacekeeping Force in South Lebanon to kill anyone in South Lebanon who points a weapon towards Israel.
That's it, folks. Period. Full stop. End of story.
And there is no way that this is going to happen. The United Nations Peacekeeping Forces do not have the testicular fortitude to pull the trigger.
Hezbollah will be able to drive a 6X6 truck onto the roof of a UN bunker, load up 12 Katyusha rockets and then ask a UN troopie to give them a light for the fuze -- which the troopie will do -- bombard Israel and then drive off with nothing more than muttered protests from the Peacekeepers.
Oh, the Peacekeepers will fire off a memo to UN Headquarters, where the UN will debate the issue for six months, before signing yet another sanction, and snivelling to Hezbollah High Command. And the Hezbollah HMFICs will promptly make diplomatic noises, send the UN off with a pat on their little behinds, and then continue shooting at Israel.
Can anyone tell me what the UN is actually good for?
Other than giving Third World despots an official excuse to think they're the equal of the civilized world -- oh, and to give rapists official credentials to use when they're extorting sex for food.
To hell with it. What will it cost to ship the entire UN building -- lock, stock and piglet -- from New York to Jerusalem?
I will happily pay -- just this one time -- double my yearly taxes, if the extra funds would be dedicated to shipping that pustulent pismire of parasitic political pudding-heads to Jerusalem, immediately.
Y'all want to futz around? Fine, you get to dodge suicide bombers and rockets for a while.
It'd do the UN, Israel and the United States a world of good for the United Nations to get a closer look at the problem in Israel.
