90 pound weakling...

...thy name is Europe:

Italy, which is expected to lead a U.N. peacekeeping force in Lebanon, will be unable to send troops if Israel "keeps shooting", Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema said on Tuesday.

"From Israel, we expect a renewed effort, this time truly binding, to respect the ceasefire," D'Alema said. "It's fair to expect that Hizbollah put down their weapons, but we cannot send our troops to Lebanon if the (Israeli) army keeps shooting."

Pathetic. Do European countries issue weapons to their military forces anymore, or is being a European soldier all about facials, manicures, and pedicures now? The good news is we don't have to worry about European wars anymore because it is pretty easy to break up armies that are sissy slapping each other and shooting spitwads. The bad news is that Europe is absolutely worthless on the world stage.
