The UN Deployment in Lebanon

And so it begins ... in the next phase of the Middle East conflict, thousands of UN troops - mostly from Europe - are heading to Lebanon to act as a buffer zone between Hezbollah and Israel. This is definitely a good thing and one I was skeptical of even just a week ago.

But no one should have any illusion that Syria and Iran want them there. I greatly fear therefore that in the future, probably within the next year, a massive attack against the UN troops will occur. It'll likely appear as an attack from "unknown assailants" but we'll all know from whom it came.
