We have a hero!

And another military man steps up to the plate. Général Alain Pellegrini.

Any general who upsets the Israelis is ok in my book.

From Le Monde via AFP:

"Israel deplores the statement by Général Alain Pellegrini, Chief of UN Forces in Lebanon, suggesting that he may change UNIFIL rules of engagement to allow the use of force to prevent incursions of Israeli warplanes."

Yeah, and if they attempt to bomb his positions:

"if French positions are attacked by Israeli warplanes or helicopters, we shall reply with our missiles."

And how deadly is the Aster(AéroSpatial TERminal)? Well, they say it is peerless.

Ip post facto?

Have Israeli forces not already atacked UNIFIL forces?

Ah, yes ... not "intentionally" ... those darn laser-guided missiles always seem to miss and hit UNIFIL positions by "mistake".

Nudnik, instead of legalisms why not simply support the idea that the international border between Israel and Lebanon be observed by all parties?

The IAF should not violate Lebanese air space.

the israelis say the overflights are to oberve the HA resupply, but of course they are to frighten the populace.

they have satellites and access to American satellites that can read the numbers and letters on car license plates.
