NELSON INSTITUTE DIRECTOR, GMU PROFESSOR ASSESS LEBANON CEASEFIRE AND FORECAST RENEWED CONFLICT

August 15, 2006

HARRISONBURG—In an op-ed published today by TCS Daily, Dr. J. Peter Pham, Director of the Nelson Institute for International and Public Affairs at James Madison University, and Professor Michael I. Krauss of George Mason University School of Law argue that the ceasefire in the conflict in Lebanon “is really the intermission after the first act of an ongoing drama” because the United Nations resolution mandating it “contains within itself the seeds of its own irrelevance, just as its seven predecessor resolutions that the diplomats shamelessly invoked in the first paragraph of the document.”
