At least they make good wine...

Is there anyone with an IQ above the single digits that was surprised by the French government's fecklessness in backing out of its commitment to provide the bulk of the troops for a bolstered UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon, under a Security Council resolution that France itself had whined and pleaded for? Instead of sending thousands of troops as expected, a pathetic complement of 200 French soldiers is being offered to police southern Lebanon.

Calling for "peace" without providing the resources to secure the peace is nothing more than moral exhibitionism. But at least you can say one good thing about the French (ok, two good things - gotta love their vino): their dithering serves to once again highlight the utter uselessness of the United Nations as a guarantor of security.
