How’s this for fantasy-land?
Here again is Sec’y Rice in the statement Michael excerpted: “[T]his resolution has an arms embargo within it, and a responsibility of the Lebanese government to make sure that illegal arms are not coming into the country.”
Now here is Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora less than three weeks ago on the capacities of his country’s forces: “The Syrians are inside our home and we are still too weak to defend ourselves. The terrible memories of the civil war are still too alive and no one is ready to take up arms.”
How hard must Ahmadinejad, Assad and Nasrallah be laughing at all this?
