A Peacekeeping Force in Lebanon: Can It Work?

Emergency talks on Lebanon ended Wednesday in Rome with no agreement on how to stop the fighting and no promises of when a cease-fire might be take place. However, the leaders agreed on the need for an international force under a U.N. mandate to support relief efforts and help end the violence.

Guests:

Sylvia Poggioli, NPR's senior European correspondent

Gary Anderson, retired Marine Corps colonel; former adviser to the Department of Defense on Iraqi security; served in Lebanon and Somalia as a U.N. peacekeeper

Robert Lowe, manager of the Middle East Program at Chatham House
