  Resolution 1559 vs. Taif Accord
A question: there seems to be a broad consensus in Lebanon for Syrian troops to leave. There is no such consensus on UN Resolution 1559, which calls for disarming Hizbullah.

Isn't part of national sovereignty the ability to protect the government internally and externally? Would the United States, whose principle of seperation of church and state is so admired by my friend Hasan, allow an armed militia to exist within its borders, unaccountable to civilian government control?
