UN: Hezbollah threatened UNIFIL after weapon cache was discovered

This is a breaking news item on Haaretz' scroller at the top of their website.

UNIFIL finds a weapons cache. This angers Hezbollah. What do you think the brave-hearted, strong-willed U.N. is going to do?

I can't wait for more information. This is a real cliff hanger! :jump

Give it back to them?

Blame it on the Israelis?

Surrender?

Choose one of the 3 options :)

Actually the UNIFIL has always taken a lot of flak from both the Israeli side and the Arab side. The fact of the matter is not that they cant do anything. But rather like all UN missions they are not allowed to do as they will.

The Lebanese government does not allow them to carry out actions. They usually arent allowed to have any heavy weaponry and all their operations require the sanction of the local authorities.

All that red tape and restrictions makes them peacekeepers in name only. If they were allowed to do as they please, the Hizbullah would be in pitched battle with them.
