Dept. of unlikely news

In the category of "we'll believe it when we see it," this story:
Commanders of the French contingent of the United Nations force in Lebanon have warned that they might have to open fire if Israel Air Force warplanes continue their overflights in Lebanon.
And no, do not file this under the "French are cowards" column; my claim of disbelief has nothing to do with my opinion of the French, and everything to do with my opinion of the U.N.

The real story here, completely unreported in the Western press, as it was before the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, is the continuing (continuous? continual?) violations of Lebanese sovereignty by the Israelis.
