UN on Lebanon - We are Pessimistic

The UN delegation to Lebanon and lead by Vijay Nambiar, Special Political Adviser to Secretary-General Kofi Annan reported that there is currently a security vacuum in Lebanon.

Mr. Roed-, a member of the delegation, spoke to reporters before the delegation leaves Israel for Europe to brief the Secretary-General on the details of its meetings.

He said, β€œThe reason for pessimism is that until there is a capable and fully deployed Lebanese force along the borders, and in Southern Lebanon, and until there is implemented a full reconfiguration and deployment of an international force there will – up to a point, and I emphasize – remain a security vacuum in Lebanon.”

It's unfortunate that they waited for a war to work this one out. Let's hope they do better in Iran.

If so, the UN shouldn't complain when the Israelis attack the Lebanese if they can't organise their own Army. I think the UN should be renamed the United Complainers.
