Jerusalem Post reported France announced on Friday that the international naval force designated to patrol Lebanon's territorial waters would not be authorized to employ force to stop ships from entering or leaving Lebanon.
What in the heck do they think the purpose of the force is? It is to stop Hezbollah from rearming.A spokesman for the French defense ministry said that the international craft would only provide assistance for Lebanese ships, and would not interfere with other nations' boats, Israel Radio reported.
This is because the French are suh cowards that they fear that if they did their jobs, and tried to stop Hezbollah from rearming, they might shoot at the French military. How did France ever win a war, with a military that was afraid of a fight.Earlier Friday, Israel began to remove its naval blockade of Lebanon, imposed almost two months after Hizbullah launched its cross-border raid and kidnapped two Israeli soldiers.
