UN Resolutions – Much ado about nothing

The Arab League sponsored Lebanese talks in Qatar are going nowhere much due to the 'official' opposition position (Hezbollah) which is really not surprising given Hezbollah's protest tactics (laying siege to the streets of Beirut).

Nevertheless, am I the only one finding the lack of criticism or even a bare bones examination on UNIFIL's performance in Lebanon a little astonishing? If the UNIFIL was really up to snuff, how did Hezbollah have had the ability mobilize artillery in the Chouf mountain district or send heavily armed men in the streets of Beirut?
