Funny To Death

You think the above caricature funny?

Read on:-

"It is obviously a very dangerous situation. The cease-fire is quite fragile," Bolton said. "Countries that are trying to take this decision want to be sure that their troops will have the maximum opportunity to defend themselves."

"That is one of the reasons why we and others sought a very robust mandate for the force, and why this may still remain to be worked out," Bolton added.

On disarming Hizbollah, the new U.N. troops are to assist the Lebanese army but not do the disarmament themselves unless they encounter small groups smuggling in weapons. But they have the right to shoot if they are in danger.

Hizbollah has promised to cooperate with Lebanese and U.N. forces, but has made clear it will keep its weapons -- although political sources say it has offered to keep them out of sight.

"I understood what he [Pres. Bush] was saying was that ... the disarming of Hizbollah, which was not specifically addressed in 1701, would have to be addressed," Bolton said, referring to the August 11 resolution.

and now this portend of things to come:

(IsraelNN.com) Hizbullah terrorists have shown their strength against UNIFIL guards at a funeral parade in Lebanon, where they dragged away U.N. barriers and opened gates. They had been told they could bury three terrorists at a cemetery outside the town of Nagoura, inside a UNIFIL compound, on condition that they did not wave political slogans or Hizbullah flags.

During the procession, several hundred chanting Hizbullah supporters overcame the French guards, who said, "They will eat us alive." The mob then waved Hizbullah flags and carried portraits of terrorist leader Hassan Nasrallah.

There were no signs of the Lebanese army in the area.
