UN Secretary General says Israeli raid violated truce

Truces are broken in the middle east more than spirits are broken on American Idol.

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has expressed deep concern over an Israeli commando raid on Lebanon, which he called a truce violation.

There will never be peace in the middle east, I think we all know that. Nothing surprises me in that region anymore. I was about as hopeful for a truce between Israel and Hizbollah as I was that one day I would obtain the ability of flight.

Lebanon has said it may halt its army deployment in the south - a key element of the ceasefire plan. The Lebanese army began deploying in the south on Thursday.

Oh well, guess that means more things are going to blow up.

Israel carried out a night raid on Saturday in the eastern Bekaa Valley, deep inside Lebanon; it accused Hizbollah of smuggling weapons from Iran and Syria. and insisted the truce held.

See the problem is that there are different opinions at work here on the definition of a truce and neither one is correct. I guess Websters Dictionary's aren't all that popular in that area.

I've always wondered.

Is it US Secretary General
Kofi Annan

-OR-

US Secretary
General Kofi Annan

Just a thought, as the 2nd option sounds like a Military Dictator.

Well, it's definitely UN something, not US. We're chock full of morons here we don't need to be taking responsiblity for Annan as well.
