Waiting for France

The FT today, here, raises doubts regarding the deployment of the French peacekeepers (Hezbollah disarmers?) in South Lebanon. This blog warned here of the likely difficulties this would involve for President Chirac whose love for striding the world stage might not necessarily be matched where danger lurks. The question I posed in that posting was as follows: "Can a widely detested and clearly shamed leader really send his troops to an active and widely televised war zone for no obvious nor potential national benefit?". If I could see it, why has the UN apparently blindly proceeded up another apparent cul de sac?
