“Apparently Deliberate”

So Kofi is “deeply distressed” by the deaths of four UN “observers”:

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said he was “deeply distressed” by the “apparently deliberate” strike.
“This coordinated artillery and aerial attack on a long-established and clearly marked U.N. post at Khiyam occurred despite personal assurances given to me by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that U.N. positions would be spared Israeli fire,” he said in a statement.
“Furthermore, General Alain Pelligrini, the U.N. force commander in south Lebanon, had been in repeated contact with Israeli officers throughout the day on Tuesday, stressing the need to protect that particular U.N. position from attack.”

Well, certainly in my lifetime the UN has caused as much harm to Israel as Hezbollucks has, what with all the sanctions they’ve put forth and with the UN providing a forum for anti-semitic forces through out the world to have their disgusting positions legitimized. Look, I’m sorry that these guys were killed, but the UN has done nothing to endear itself to Israel, and these Powder-Blue Helmeted Rape Brigades can not expect to go traipsing about in the midst of war zones (and let’s not forget that these UN observers have been in southern Lebanon for years, and they have been effective at stopping what, exactly?) and not catch the occasional round.

    That post not only watched as Hezbollah kidnapped their soldiers, they filmed the act of war without trying to stop it. Then they denied it.
    Israel denies targeting the UN post. In other news, the US government continues to deny that they purposefully bombed the Chinese embassy in the Balkans.

    I think we’re due for a few more “slips” over Iran.

  4. He wasn’t that upset when the Iraqi truck bomb blowed up his envoy in Baghdad:

    “All of us at the United Nations are shocked and dismayed by today’s attack, in which many of our colleagues have been injured and an unknown number have lost their lives — Iraqis as well as international staff,” U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said in a written statement.

    …”It’s the first to my recollection, that an attack on a U.N. headquarters had grievously injured the special representative, members of his staff, other U.N. employees in the building, certainly on this scale,” he said. “So it’s an unusual thing for the United Nations to be targeted when our objective in that country, I think, which should be recognized by all, is to just help Iraqis get back on their feet.”

    Must be because the Jooz did it, not freedom fighters. Hurts worse if it’s Hebrew instead of Hizbullah.

    This must be what they mean by “disproportionate force.”

    At least the little girls who signed the artillery shells can sleep a bit better, with fewer UN troops to hide from…..
