Fisking 1701

GavelJurist, a journal published by the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, asked two legal wonks to critique UN Security Council Resolution 1701. Northwestern University's Anthony D'Amato and Hebrew University's Dr. Robbie Sabel fisked away, coming away with dim views of the resolution.

It does not matter what the resolution says. It is a piece of paper and ink.
The reality is that Hezbulah and Lebanon have already reneged on their agreements.
They are already saying that Hezbulah will not disarm. The presence of Lebanese and international troops in Southern Lebanon will not stop Hezbulah activities. UNIFIL will act as a now enhanced shield for Hezbulah, and be a deterrent for any military action by Israel.
The situation in South Lebanon will be worse for Israel than before the war, and the abducted soldiers will not be released unless Israel releases the Lebanese terrorists it holds (exactly what Hezbulah wanted).
I don't know why after all this time we think that U.N resolutions do anything but hand victory to our enemies from the jaws of defeat.

I agree with Stan that the UN is part of the problem not part of the solution.
