July 2006: Res. 1559 or another worthless UN resolution

Back in 2006, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1559:
"its support for a free and fair presidential election in Lebanon conducted according to Lebanese constitutional rules devised without foreign interference or influence and, in that connection, called upon all remaining foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon."
The "diplomacy always" crowd cheered and toasted the historic moment.    For sure, New York restaurants probably sold a lot of champagne and expensive wine as "UN types" told each other how great and relevant they are.

Back in Lebanon, the terrorists laughed at Resolution 1559. Why? Because Hezbollah knew that no one would enforce it and consequently nothing would happen.

Such is the fate of so many UN Resolutions. Nothing happens!
