France wobbles on troops promise

France, the driving force behind the UN resolution that ended the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah, has said it will contribute only 200 army engineers to the proposed 15,000 strong international peace-keeping force.

"We want clarifications from the United Nations on the mission of Unifil, on the chain of command, how it will be organised, how this force should report on its actions and to whom," Douste-Blazy told France's Info Radio on Sunday.

The French government fears that combat troops might come under attack from Hezbollah.

"You can't send in men telling them: 'Look what's going on, but you don't have the right to defend yourself or to shoot'.

"The disappointing decision to limit to 200 the number of French soldiers deployed to Lebanon has provoked astonishment and confusion," a senior official in Israel's foreign ministry said.

Thats right put the French in charge and it's PLOPD' from the get go. What a joke. Me thinks, dang that hurt. My guess is next month the French still will not have done a dam thing.

Take it slow and keep your head up. That way you can see the bullshit coming.
And don’t waste my time calling me a racist, cause I aren’t. So there!
