    1559 was on the books for what -- a year?  Two years?  And there was no talk about using international forces to implement it.  I don't know for sure, but I very much doubt Lebanon was requesting an international force (no country is going to invite foreign soldiers on their land, and disarming Hezballah is going to be very painful for Lebanon even if done by foreign troops).  Certainly no other country was volunteering troops to do the job -- which will be dangerous, thankless work when and if done.

    Now, of course, the situation is different.  If there's  any good to come out of this miserable situation, I hope it's that 1559 is fully implemented and the situation does not return to having a state-less, anti-peace militia in control of southern Lebanon.

    Is America finally suffering from Idiot Fatigue?
