Disarming

Hezbollah claim they cannot withdraw their fighters from the south, since they are the people. And there are suggestions that their weapons will not be given up, but hidden. There is an air of unreality about much comment during these 5 days of ceasefire. It would not be surprising for small arms and even rifles to be concealed. But it would seem to be obvious that it is harder to hide rockets, their launchers and anti-tank weapons. To paraphrase Hans Blix, we are not talking about toothpicks here.
