UNIFIL won't disarm Hezbollah....

This means they won't be disarmed...
The commander of the UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon said Monday that his troops will not try to disarm Hizbullah, saying that was a matter for the Lebanese government.

Major-General Alain Pelligrini told reporters that the main task of the beefed-up UN force, known as UNIFIL, was to ensure that southern Lebanon could not be used as a base for attacks on Israel.

"The disarmament of Hizbullah is not the business of UNIFIL. This is a strictly Lebanese affair, which should be resolved at a national level," he said.

The United Nations worked hard to get the arms blockade lifted so that Iran could re-arm Hezbollah, so it's highly unlikely they would allow UN troops to dis-arm one of their key allies.

The fact that the UN considers their 'own' troops expendable in the war on Israel indicates their level of commitment, but even left leaning Canadians don't want to see more Canadian troops killed in the fight against Israel, don't they?
