Israel: Lebanon Cease-Fire in Jeopardy -Israel's defense minister told the head of the United Nations on Saturday that the U.N.-brokered cease-fire in southern Lebanon is endangered by Hezbollah militants, who continue to hold two captured Israeli soldiers and receive arms shipments from Syria.U.N. Unanimously Approves Iran Sanctions -The U.N. Security Council unanimously voted Saturday to impose new sanctions against Iran for its refusal to stop enriching uranium - a move intended to show Tehran that defiance will leave it increasingly isolated.
The moderately tougher sanctions include banning Iranian arms exports, and freezing the assets of 28 people and organizations involved in Iran's nuclear and missile programs.
About a third of those are linked to the Revolutionary Guard, an elite military corps.
The United States is ``very pleased by the strength of this resolution'' after two years of diplomacy, said R. Nicholas Burns, undersecretary for political affairs at the State Department.
As we crank up pressure on Tehran, they will crank it up on the Lebanon-Israeli border and in Baghdad. Fasten your seat belts...
The fact is there cannot be peace between Israel and Lebanon and Syria - and Hamas - until we neutralize Iran.
Whether we neuter them militarily or cause them so much economic trouble the evil mullah regime collapses matters not. It only matters that we topple the tyrants of Tehran BEFORE they get nukes.
AND BEFORE THE DEMS TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE!
