Cannot answer as there is no place to put an alternative choice.
No room to add choice of No. But I say no.
"and it was clear they weren't winning that conflict.":
Hezbollah was hanging in there, and had fought Israel to a standstill.
"But Israel was prevented from finishing the job by the UN, which called for a ceasefire."
Israel refused to even consider a cease fire when it was gleefully destroying Lebanon and thought it would destroy Hezbollah. When Hezbollah held up, and the people of Israel started becoming demoralized, then Israel (and its puppet, the U.S.) called for a cease fire. The U.N. didn't stop Israel from doing anything. Far from it. The U.N. bailed Israel out.
"So hezbollah (sic) was saved from destruction at the last moment by UN intervention."
Hezbollah was taking heavier losses, but was actually increasing the number of rocket attacks on Israel, and forcing Israel to take greater risks in the ground invasion. Israel had NO HOPE of destroying hezbollah.
"Next they work to remove all Israeli troops and ships from the area"
Israel left on its own timetable.
This ballot is a total crock, a pure fiction created by Mr. Neocon.
Voted : They are intentionally helping the terrorists
Worse yet, is sending in Lebanese troops to help. That's like asking the Hells Angels MC to run drug enforcement!
I think the U.N. has an anti-USA bias due to a variety of things like our unilateral attack on Iraq after they refused to take action, and our unpaid U.N. dues, and the fact that we truly do not respect them in the way they think we should. It is also a fact that a large number of nations dislikes the United States out of envy and fear. These nations have a disproportionate influence in the U.N. In my view, the U.N. is a great chat room, but I wouldn't date anyone from there.
Steel, tom, I've had to stop allowing choices because I am currently being stalked by several trolls who put entries that have nothing to do with the ballot question.
But the choices cover all possibilities. The outcome of the war in lebanon was orchestrated by the UN and it most definitely benefits the terrorists. The only question is if this was intentional or not.
Voted : It's just a coincidence everyone has worked out to hezbollahs advantage, the UN is simply inept
"The outcome of the war in lebanon (sic) was orchestrated by the UN."
The U.S. and Israel orchestrated the war, from the start up until the point they realized they couldn't win. Then they dropped it in the lap of the U.N. And it remains to be seen who will benefit the most from the U.S. and Israel doing a cut-and-run.
"But the choices cover all possibilities."
The ballot choices only cover the possibilities that reflect rightwing propaganda spin.
I assume you are a maintainer and can delete the dodgy and offensive choices.
I dont mean legitimate ones,that may not gel with your opinion, but the downright inane and/or nasty ones.
'I assume you are a maintainer and can delete the dodgy and offensive choices. '
Not against fellow maintainers who created aliases to promote themselves ahead of where they should be. Believe me, if I could I would ban these choices.
' I dont mean legitimate ones,that may not gel with your opinion, but the downright inane and/or nasty ones.'
I've never rated down a rational comment no matter how much I disliked it. I do remove ones (when I can) that have nothing to do with anything on the ballot.
Look at all my recent ballots where I did allow choices for examples on how the privledge is abused by a few on this site to the detriment of everyone else.
I wasn't accusing you of doing so, it was a generally point, towards hose who would be tempted
