The summer of war draws ever closer.

HEZBOLLAH, the powerful Iranian-backed militia that fought the Israeli army last summer, has built a network of underground military bunkers under the feet of United Nations peacekeeping forces in southern Lebanon close to Israel’s border.

It has rebuilt its fighting capability and Israeli intelligence now estimates that it has stockpiled 20,000 rockets.

“Hezbollah will never leave southern Lebanon,” said Shaul Mofaz, the former defence minister, last week. “It’s now armed with rockets that could hit central and even southern Israel.”

And once again we see the complete ineffectiveness of the UN.

Well they seem to be killing each other at the moment which is a good thing. I'm hoping that we are encouraging that as an unofficial policy and that it continues for a while. It'll help thin them out.
