U.N. Silliness

Browsing the news this morning I saw this article: U.S. Resists Pressure to Intervene in Liberia. Ordinarily this would not rate high on my list of potential posts, but there was one line that stuck in my head:

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan kept up the pressure on the United States on Monday to lead an intervention in Liberia as troops strengthened defenses around battle-worn Monrovia in fear of another rebel attack.

Excuse me?

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said the United States was “looking at a range of options” in Liberia. Asked about U.S. participation in a multinational force, Rumsfeld he told a Pentagon briefing: “That’s a call the president (George W. Bush) would make, if and when he decided to make such a call. And he has not.”

Let me get this straight, the UN is now pressuring us to do what they spent 6 months trying to keep us from doing in Iraq?

Kofi is a wanker.
