A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

Does something look wrong with this picture? It should.

United Nations (The blue flag) Resolution 1559 in 2004 says:
Calls for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias;

Not only that, look at this from the most recent press release from the U.N.I.F.L.
Another UN position of the Ghanaian battalion in the area of Marwahin in the western sector was also directly hit by one mortar round from the Hezbollah side last night. The round did not explode, and there were no casualties or material damage. Another 5 incidents of firing close to UN positions from the Israeli side were reported yesterday. It was also reported that Hezbollah fired from the vicinity of four UN positions at Alma ash Shab, Tibnin, Brashit, and At Tiri. All UNIFIL positions remain occupied and maintained by the troops.

If I'm not mistaken, if Lebanon had followed their own resolution, and disbanded Hezbollah in the first place, the U.N. would not have been mistakenly hit those times. And yet, Israel remains the bad guy.

One more thing; Lebanon considers Hezbollah a "resistance." Normally a "resistance" is considered a threat to the government and is destroyed. But has Lebanon done ANYTHING to destroy the "resistance?" No. Instead they have welcomed them into the government.
"On Wednesday, the council -- while noting "significant and noticeable progress towards implementing some of the provisions contained in Resolution 1559" -- expressed concern in a written statement that there has been "no progress on the implementation of other provisions of the resolution." In particular, the council said, there are concerns that Lebanon has not completed "the disarmament of Lebanese and non-Lebanese militia and the extension of the control of the government of Lebanon over all Lebanese territory, and that the requirements of the resolution have not yet been met." -
