Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison praised the closer cooperation between the two armies during his visit to Fiji this week.

    Well, UNIFIL is deaf, dumb, and blind; it can’t see or hear a Hezbollah terror tunnel being built under its noses, and it is incapable of stopping a single rocket from being stored under civilian homes, schools, hospitals, and mosques. Let’s hope the Aussie’s and Fijian’s are led by someone more capable than the cowardly Del Sol.
