The illustrious Kofi “The Magnificent” Annan graces the pages of Cranial Cavity this fine Tuesday. While addressing a meeting of foreign ministers, including Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Kofi said Iraqi leaders were “at an important crossroads” as the country faces a persistent insurgency and rampant sectarian violence.
Well, well. Welcome to the party Kofi, fashionably late I see.
Iraq and it’s leaders have been at an important crossroads since Saddam fled into his rabbit hole. With the exception of uttering a few sheep bleats after allowing the U.N. Mission HQ’s in Iraq to be blown sky high, then fleeing the country shortly thereafter, you and your hazard to mankind organization have been completely silent on the issue of Iraq.
Well, let me restate that. I wanna be fair even if it is Kofi were talking about. He hasn’t been entirely silent. There was that one time when Kofi did more than a little campaigning on behalf of John “Empty Suit” Kerry which speaks volumes doesn’t it?
But other than that, silent!
One other note on Kofi’s implementation of the Compact for Iraq. It calls for a “five year plan” for Iraq. It took the U.N. five years to gin up a five year plan!
Using that timeline as a guide can we assume a U.N. “Ten Year Plan” is in the offing to combat U.N. “peace-keepers” that are committing sex crimes against children with impunity in the far corners of the world?
