Israel to UN: Whatever

So Isreal is bombing Lebanon, because it is sick of the Hezbollah guerillas.

[Israeli Prime Minister Ethud] Olmert told U.N. chief Kofi Annan in a phone call that the offensive would not halt until Hezbollah guerillas are disarmed. But he agreed to allow U.N. mediation for a cease-fire — but only if the terms for the truce included the return of the soldiers and the disarming of the guerrillas, an official close to the premier said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

Translation: We won't stop unless we get what we want. The UN can come in and mediate for a cease fire, but really and truly, it doesn't really matter, because we will only accept the terms of your negotiation if said terms include getting what we want.

Once again, Israel proves itself to be the world's most badass superpower.
