Nikki Haley discusses Hezbollah threat with UN Special Coordinator

NEW YORK- US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley met with UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Sigrid Kaag on Wednesday and discussed ways to advance the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006 and called for the disarmament of all armed groups in Lebanon.

During the encounter, Haley emphasized the need for the international community to “apply more pressure on Hezbollah to disarm and cease its destabilizing behavior, especially toward Israel.” She also expressed alarm over the build-up of weapons by Hezbollah, which she described as “a situation that demands the international community’s attention to prevent the further escalation of regional tensions.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
