Italy: Not Lebanon Troops Until Israel Behaves

From the terrorist enabling folks at Reuters:

Italy won't send troops if Israel "keeps shooting"

Tue Aug 22

ROME (Reuters) – Italy, which is expected to lead a U.N. peacekeeping force in Lebanon, will be unable to send troops if
Israel "keeps shooting," Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema said on Tuesday.

"From Israel, we expect a renewed effort, this time truly binding, to respect the ceasefire," D'Alema said. "It's fair to expect that Hizbollah put down their weapons, but we cannot send our troops to Lebanon if the (Israeli) army keeps shooting."

This is the stuff of comic opera.

How quickly a country's foreign policy can go south when a Communist gets in control.

Note that they trust Hezbollah to abide by the rules.
