The UN does an superb job all by itself

Actually, the UN, unfortunately, does a superb job undermining their own credibility and compromising efforts to stabilise the region by allowing Hezbollah to truck in arms, renting or selling their jeeps and equipment to Hezbollah to kidnap Israeli soldiers and the list goes on.

MARJAYOUN, Lebanon (AFP) - Lebanese troops opened fire on two Israeli jets flying low over the south of the country on Thursday, the police and army said.
"The Lebanese army used anti-aircraft weapons toward two Israeli warplanes that were flying low over the Marjayoun area," said a police spokesman, who asked not to identified.
An army spokesman said the two jets headed back towards Israel at around 11:10 a.m. (0810 GMT).
The incident marked the first time in a year that the army has fired on Israeli warplanes. In February, troops fired on an unmanned Israeli drone flying east of the southern port city of Tyre.
Israel has drawn intense international criticism by continuing overflights after the ceasefire that ended last year's 34-day war against the militant group Hezbollah.
The United Nations has said such overflights undermine the credibility of UN peacekeepers stationed in southern Lebanon and compromise efforts to stabilise the region.
