If you're expecting, at least for a half decade, the Lebanese Army to do it, think again.

A very interesting article about the post-conflict enviornment, and why it will require a fairly long-term international presence in the South of Lebanon.

In my view, the U.S. SHOULD help upgrade the Lebanese Army, so it can keep such elements out of its midst, and so it doesn't become a shooting gallery or political pawn for either Israel in the former, or Syria in the latter.

I question if its really possible to totally disarm organizations like Hezbollah in this age. Nothing else even if they get crushed, organizations that spawn from hate will arise again with maybe a new name, and new source of funding. Just my 25cents worth.

You want to arm the Lebanese government so that it can de-arm Hezbollah? Exactly what has this government done during the last 20 years to make you think they have they track record or knowledge capability to complete this mission?

PMSL. If Condy isn't welcome in Lebanon, what on earth makes you think they will want any US military (or even help from) in their country? Particularly with pro-Syrian forces still in government?
