Stupid news item of the week

MSNBC shows why Kofi Annan is the unequivocal master of the obvious:

The level of violence in Iraq is "much worse" than that of Lebanon's civil war, outgoing U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan said in an interview aired Monday.

How illuminating.

Last week, when asked by reporters whether the fighting in Iraq could be considered a civil war, Annan said "almost."
"I think given the developments on the ground, unless something is done drastically and urgently to arrest the deteriorating situation, we could be there. In fact we are almost there," he said last week.

Please tell me when precisely the U.N. has attempted something "drastic" that has had a positive result? Let's see, how about when they made the drastic move to chastise Israel and castrate them in the midst of a purge against Hezbollah? Yes that was quite drastic. How about when they made the impulsive decision to intervene in the Rwandan genocide? Oh wait, they didn't do a damn thing.

In the BBC interview, Annan agreed when it was suggested that some Iraqis believe life is worse now than it was under Saddam Hussein's regime.

Let me spell out the subtext that the BBC reporter was trying to get across: Iraq is worse, and its because of the evil United States. Sure, in alot of ways things are more bloody and violent, but it is because of bureaucrats and the media tying our hands so we can't obliterate the murdering filth that festers in the Iraqi swamps. That's what so many of these liberals morons can't seem to get through their skulls.

Peace, but always through strength.
