Israel pullout to stop if Lebanon army does not deploy

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel could withdraw its forces from southern Lebanon within 10 days, but only if the Lebanese army deploys quickly in the area, Israel's army chief of staff, Dan Halutz, said on Wednesday.


"The withdrawal of the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) within 10 days is dependent upon the deployment of the Lebanese army," Halutz told parliament's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, according to a spokesman.

"If the Lebanese army does not move down within a number of days to the south ... the way I see it, we must stop our withdrawal," Halutz added.

Lebanon's cabinet will meet on Wednesday to issue an order to the army to deploy in south Lebanon immediately, a senior political source in Beirut said.

The source said the 15,000-strong force will begin to deploy south of the Litani River on Thursday.

WHY we are even dealing with the UN w.r.t. Israel anymore? I'm not sure what the US is doing here. Seems counter to what we've done in the past and certainly since President Bush installed Bolten at the UN. Confused Sad

if anybody in the UN has figured out a way to prove that the "Lebanese" army moving into that area really aren't Hezbollah since Hezbollah is a recognized military force and part of the Lebanese government already?

I think this is all a bad idea and the only forces within that border should be the peacekeepers, even if they have to be almost permanently set up there as an outside thirdparty force.
