OMG! Hezbullah is violating UN Security Council Resolution 1701

You have to wonder what cave the United Nations has been living in for the last four and a half years.
Michael Williams, UN special coordinator for Lebanon, said that Hezbollah militia is smuggling large amounts of weaponry to south of the Litani river and stocking them there and warned ” this is a violation of UN resolution 1701″

On September 3, a suspected weapons cache exploded in the south Lebanon town of Shehabiyeh, a Hezbollah stronghold.

Williams said there were concerns at the delay in which the UN peacekeeping force, UNIFIL, was given access to the site of the Shehabiyeh explosion.

“Many times the secretary general of Hezbollah has referred openly to the Hezbollah’s considerable armaments, sometimes in some detail, and has referred also to the replenishment of those armaments since the war of 2006, so I have to assume that this weaponry was smuggled into the country,” Williams said.
Really? You think it was smuggled in? What brilliance! In case you hadn't noticed yet, Hezbullah is not a member of the UN and therefore has never seen itself as bound by Security Council Resolution 1701. That's something that some intrepid bloggers (including yours truly) pointed out in the summer of 2006, but no one else wanted to hear at the time.

On the other hand, UNIFIL can't do anything about Hezbullah unless the Lebanese Armed Forces issues a request, and we all know the odds of that happening....

What could go wrong?
