    What kind of a response is this? It was extremely stupid to sit in the middle of a warzone and accomplish nothing. Whether you would be more tactful in talking to their relative is irrelevant.

    This thread is flagrantly biased.

    The United States lets Isreal flout UN resolutions. How can the UN expect to exert it's authoirty on Hezbollah, sworn enemies of Isreal, when it's most powerful member supports Isreal's actions?

    Well I think it is extremely stupid to say that the UN peacekeepers deserved to die.

    Yup.

    I doubt that's what he meant. I'm willing to bet he was implying that it was their fault and not Israel's...

    The UN allowed the rockets to be fired on Israel by not enforcing 1559.

    Now you said that was the USs fault explain your self if you can.

    Oh, right. I forgot that Israel disobeyed the UN resolution stating that they needed to use their ultra-accurate weapons that avoided harming the civilians who the terrorists intermixed themselves in and the peacekeepers who decided to stay in the middle of the crossfire while they did nothing to stop Hezbollah from attacking Israeli civilians :rolleyes:.

    I don't think I said that.

    But since this thread is heating up, let me recap my position.

    My first post was to say that there was no certainty that Israel deliberately attacked an UN outpost, and I said I found the wording of the thread title dubious.

    My other posts mainly try to deal with the IMO outrageous assumption you're making that those peacekeepers deserved to die.

    If you are talking about the resolutions, the fact that there still isn't a Palestinian state demonstates well what is wrong with Isreal's actions.

    Well, I would say it's unintentionally very funny from an unbiased observer's perspective.

    The title is clear.

    If the pro-Israelis want to disprove the idea that underlines the title, they could have gone about it in a more intelligent way than saying..

    Ah well, it's the UN.
    They deserved it.

    So I guess I should thank them all for proving my point. :lol:

    Seems to me like the UN is not very popular with Hezbollah:

    The ordinary Lebanese:

    And the Hezbollah/ lebanese government:

    Nobody likes those darn UN folks.

    In this situation yes, and it is a sad enditement of the bias that is passed towards Israel. Let's face it, it's got a friend that does nothing to let it face the music, and sits back and advocates a policy that is so one sided it's pointless, the rest of the world looks on in despair. Let's get back to a time where it actually cares about the other side, or slide ourselves into an oblivion of bias that makes the whole afair meanigless, it isn't the UN that is powerless, it is the US that makes it so, sad state of affairs, and you wonder why you get so much flak, no impartiality ATM, no care for anything but your own views.

    How can peace be achieved if only your side is represented? The UN goes all impartial but you don't care and if you keep kicking the we are so right vibe and everyone else is wrong, nothing will come of it. Let both sides face the music and dance, or let nothing be achieved, balls in your court. You once tried to give both sides a fair deal, now all you do is advocate meaningless yin without a yang.

    Wrong. Is that the message Israel want to give to the UN and the world ?

    You die at war when someone kills you. If Israel deliberately bombed those UN soldiers, then Israel is directly responsible for the death of those soldiers. As far as I know, it's not Hezbollah, nor Hamas, nor Iran, nor Syria, nor God, nor Allah, nor hard luck, nor destiny, etc... that killed them, it's Tsahal. Could be an accident or an attack. But Israel killed some innocent UN peace keepers.

    No, it represents that the terrorists don't really care about a Palestinian state. They care about the destruction of Israel. Israel had agreed to a two-state solution, but it was rejected by Yasir Arafat because it included an unacceptable condition: the other state, Israel.
