Hey Kofi, WTF?

The lovely Phoenix brings it to Kofi Annan.  Both Barrels.

"Seriously, man! Did you smoke your breakfast, or are you seriously this stupid? It seems to me a foolish thing to do to set up your outpost so close to an outpost of one of the engaged parties. More specifically, it seems beyond foolish - stupid really - to set up that outpost nearer to the likely loser in the fight in terms of technological bang-for-the-buck, if you know what I mean."
There's even more.  Read the whole thing.

The bigger point that Kofi misses is that he just volunteered the UN peacekeepers to the victims brigade. By placing all the blame on Israel for chasing targets, and doing so in such an outrageous manner, women and children will become secondary to our pals in the UN.

If I were Harper I'd be pissed too. Kofi has put more peacekeepers in harms way than he will ever realize.

Sweet lord, have you people no shame?

The UN is there for humanitarian purposes, that would be why they landed in the bombed airport with medical necessities and food. Even if the Hezbollah militants moved in around the area, that doesn't mean you continue to shell the peacekeepers. If you simply must have the position, common sense would tell you that one would surround it with ground forces.

The Israelis are risking world war three for a few soldiers. It's arithemetical madness.

I think - meaning I'm not positive but believe I am correct - that the UN observer posts were already in position, and manned, since the Israelis left Lebanon the last time they had to go in there and stop the rocket launchers, etc.

The UN wasn't USING the outposts to stop any terror or anything, they were just kind hanging, chillin', with the Hez and that.
