Professor Dennis Jett in Foreign Affairs on 'The Future of UN Peacekeepers in Lebanon'

"At tthe end of last month, the UN Security Council unanimously approved a resolution to extend its peacekeeping force in Lebanon by another year. Danny Danon, Israel’s UN ambassador, described it as 'a significant diplomatic achievement that could change the situation.' U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the decision signaled a rejection of the status quo and would thus provide the peacekeepers the 'power and will' to do the job. Unfortunately, the resolution will do none of those things."
