Israel wants EU troops in Lebanon

July 23rd, 2006 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says he will allow an EU force in Lebanon.

But controversially, he does not just want international peacekeepers at the Lebanon-Israel border, he wants to impose his will on the Lebanon-Syria border, something which Lebanon is almost certain to reject.

The international force “will have to include control of the border crossings between Syria and Lebanon, deployment in south Lebanon and support for the Lebanese army,” Olmert said. He has accused Iran of smuggling weapons to Hizbollah across the Syria-Lebanon frontier.

    Dear Norman,

    Can you refresh my memory and remind me how you lost the Golan Heights?

    As I remember, Syria started the war and lost the Golan in this war.

    Do you want the Golan height to try again?

    I do not think so.

    if a country were to fire missles at either Russia or the US or China would the UN request a cease fire or withdraw of troups when these countries retaliate or attempt to stop the missle fire?
