BREAKING:Syria Agrees to UN Resolution 1701

Kofi Annan is reporting that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has now promised to enforce an arms embargo on Hezbollah as defined in UN Resolution 1701.

"'While stating Syrian objections to the presence of foreign forces along the Syrian-Lebanese border, the president committed to me that Syria will take all necessary measures to implement in full paragraph 15 of the resolution,' Annan added, referring to a provision that bans illegal arms shipments to Lebanon." - Reuters News Article via Yahoo!

Yeah, this is same country that has been helping Hezbollah to arm up in the first place in violation of UN Resolution 1559 which called for the disarmament of Hezbollah a few years ago. This is the same country that assassinated Lebanon's leader last year because he spoke out too much against the Syrian force that was illegally in Lebanon controlling that country. This is the same country that is practically a twin brother to Iran which is currently ignoring all UN resolutions against nuclear proliferation in that country.

But, it great Israel-hating fashion, the Kofi Annan and the United Nations is just going to take al-Assad at his word and trust him to do the right thing.
