Lebanon Won’t Make Hezbollah Leave The South

From the Jerusalem Post:

Lebanese youths fish in the southern port city of Sidon, Lebanon, Sunday Aug. 13, 2006. U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan said in a statement that a cease-fire between Hezbollah and Israel will take effect Monday morning but with the current uncertainty in the country and with a population tempered by long years of conflict, many people try to continue with their lives as normal.

Lebanon will not force Hizbullah to withdraw

Aug. 14, 2006

Lebanon's ambassador to the UN said that his government would not use force to ensure the dismantling of Hizbullah, sources said early Sunday morning. He claimed that Hizbullah would independently be responsible for leaving south Lebanon.

"We could have completed a cease-fire by Sunday morning, but Israel insisted on destroying the essence of Lebanon," the ambassador commented while being interviewed by CNN.

So that ends that.
