U.N. Secretary General
Suffice it to say, this blogger has contempt for Mr. Annan, as he is a pathetic creature of all that is bad about the United Nations. Annan is an anti-Semitic who placates countries that defy human rights and refuses to recognize Syria and Iran as terrorist regimes.
"While Hezbollah's actions are deplorable and Israel has a right to defend itself, the excessive use of force is to be condemned," Annan told the Security Council this week.
"Despite our assessment that a full ceasefire remains difficult to achieve at this time, I remain of the view that the international community must make its position clear on the need for an immediate ceasefire of hostilities and a greater credible effort by Israel to protect civilians while conditions for such a cessation are urgently developed," Annan said in his first assessment of the situation since Israeli military action in Lebanon.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Gillerman, however, told a press conference afterward that there would be no cease-fire. He also said he was disturbed that "one word which was, curiously, totally missing from that report was the word 'terror.'"
"The first thing that must be addressed is cessation of terror before we even talk about cessation of hostilities," Gillerman said.
US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton agreed, saying, "No one has explained how you conduct a cease-fire with a group of terrorists."
Kofi Annan is no leader, he couldn't lead a whore to bed. Annan's time is running out as Secretary General, good riddance. If only the U.N. would follow him into the sunset and desolve.
