Not a post about crappy trousers. The French, expected to be the lead force in the UN paecekeeping force to be deployed alongside the Lebanese Army, have been their backsliding selves (as usual) Despite all the big talk and their posturing to make them look like players on the world scene, they have pledged a measly 200 troops to the force. A sqns worth of Engineers is a laughable amount, especially as Bangladesh have pledged 2000, Malaysia and Indonesia 1000 each too. What a bunch of lamentable wasters. They talk the talk, but they most certainly do not walk the walk. This was reported on 5live this morning with the deputy UN boss expressing his "disappointment" Sorry no link, due to extremely low bandwidth connection.
