In St. Petersburg Russia, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and British Prime Minister Tony Blair call for the arms and deployment of international troops to Israel to help with the bombardment attacks from the Hezbollah. The facts are stated that nothing will end with just Israel and Lebanon fighting it out. There has to be an outside force to help with Israel against the Hezbollah. The leaders of the U.N. feel also this will be the best call to the conflict yet.
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - British Prime Minister
Tony Blair and U.N. Secretary-General
Kofi Annan called Monday for the deployment of international forces to stop the bombardment of Israel.

"The blunt reality is that this violence is not going to stop unless we create the conditions for the cessation of violence," Blair said after talks with Annan on the margins of the Group of Eight summit. "The only way is if we have a deployment of international forces that can stop bombardment coming into Israel."

Annan appealed to Israel to abide by international law, spare civilian lives and infrastructure.

He also said that the United Nations was considering evacuation plans for U.N. dependents from Lebanon, while Blair said Britain was looking at the possibility of creating an air bridge for its citizens.

The mobilization of troops has not begun as of yet, but the call for help on Israel’s behalf is now stated. The current situation in the Middle East is holding a significant imbalance on the rest of the world. It is the U.N. to mandate these laws and help sustain peace while also protecting those which stand with the U.N. and defending civilians and infrastructure. The majority and main view of the U.N. is to condemn violence, and as of here there will to do so is tried. With the U.N. also dealing with the current North Korean problems, there mandate is to deal with the current conflict of the Lebanese and Israeli governments for the sake of human life.

What?! Thats like sending in a security guard to protect a pit bull from a chiuaua.

My only hope is that this is a back handed way of monitoring and curbing Israel's bloody tactics which have killed hundreds of innocent civilians. If this is a method which the UN intends to restrain Israel by its very prescence (and witness) then I suppose it can be a good thing.

And if some UN aide personnel end up as collateral damage, then all hell will break loose as israel will have a UN license to turn up the volume. Id feel a lot better if UN aide personnel were present on both sides of the conflict to mitigate that happening...

This is sick. They should be deployed to the border area in order to isolate and target any aggression from either side, thats right Israel or Hezbollah. If it gets shot from Israel destroy it. If it gets shot from Lebnon, destroy it. When these two understand they are just tiny little specs on the planet that can be erased by the Global community for further inconviniencing the world and society in general. Maybe they can get along then.
