Ovine transgressors


Lambs in wolves' clothing
Not quite home yet, but I couldn't resist posting this superb example of the desperate agony of equal distances, as per the situation in Lebanon, coming from the UN. The Organization's press release, reporting on cease-fire violations, states that:

...On two instances yesterday morning, Israeli aircraft violated Lebanese airspace in the central sector. Also, violation of the Blue Line on the ground in Shebaa area has resumed. Yesterday, two Lebanese shepherds and approx. 100 sheep crossed the Blue Line towards Israel. Such incidents can endanger very fragile and tense situation...


Spotted by Blogging the Middle East, Anarchistian's excellent Lebanese Blog that I've been following closely during this whole criminal mess...

> desperate agony of equal distances

You couldn't make this stuff up!
There is little doubt in my mind that in recent years (say Coffee Annan's reign) the UN has become just another US voicebox. I'm not quite sure how they did it, but a neat trick, nevertheless.

Anarchistian's blog is excellent. I also read http://marxistfromlebanon.blogspot.com/

They are positioning themselves for round #2, Hezbollah and the Zionists.

is the situation in Southern Lebanon this fragile that a shepherd can cause another outbreak of violence? Perhaps it was a Hezbollah member in disguise(duh?). As long as the cease-fire and the sanctions are imposed and obeyed strictly there will at least be a moment of calm in that area.
