President Bush Thanks U.N.?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: U.N. Dispatch, Cross Posted on Blogger News)

"I think the United Nations is important. As a matter of fact, I'll give you an example: Today I met with the United Nations representative to Lebanon. He's delivered a very strong message to the Syrian leader, though, that the world expects President Assad to withdraw not only his military forces, but his intelligence services, completely from Lebanon. And now he is in charge of following up to make sure it happens.

Although a complete withdrawal of intelligence services is something doubtful of Syria (after all, everyone has their double agents) the fact that the United Nations is actually doing something productive throughout the world body is astounding. After mismanaging the entire "Oil-for-Food" program (not to mention the "Sex-for-food" scandal) the U.N. is quickly getting it's priorities in order by helping nations who desire to be free from foreign influence remain free.

The question now remains as to whether or not the United Nations can effectively root out (or "reform") the insurgent/terrorist group known as Hezbollah who currently is refusing to disarm.

The leader of Hezbollah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrullah, recently reiterated that his group will not give up their weapons. In an interview with Reuters he said that his party will keep its weapons and will not give it up, noting that this decision is because of the continued Israeli occupation and the risks of occupation against his country. He even snubbed the UN, saying that its Security Council resolution demanding Hizbullah to hand over its weapons is 'meaningless' and 'of no value'.

Perhaps the United Nations could add "weight" to it's words with "actions." If the United Nations passed and enforced it's resolutions against Hezbollah then perhaps they would be taken more seriously. Lebanon is a testing ground for the U.N. and if they can prove themselves successful here then it will go a long way towards restoring their credibility as an institution that promotes (and enforces) world peace.
