Really who is this idiot running the UN? I mean you put a couple dozen unarmed or lightly armed people between two heavily armed forces and you get surprised when some fighting takes off and you're caught in the middle of it?

So Kofi Annan was Secretary General in 1978 when UNFIL and its conditions were created? I'd hardly call him an idiot for something he did not create.

the UN is about as worthless as Ann Coulter with a gun...

Djohnsto77, I didn't see a link. Could you post one so people can read the article?


I'm not questioning what you say, just thought it would be easier for the discussion in the thread.

I'm very sorry but I really don't have a link, I'm just flipping back and forth among the various cable news channels.

And I know it's not all Kofi's fault, but he acts surprised that something like this could happen? Like said the middle east has been a tinder box for years and the UN has been woefully inadequate in enforcing the resolutions and peace there. There are no easy answers I realize, but this guy is just a fool.

Err, that's their job.

They're peacekeepers and observers, not a standing army.

IMHO it takes a lot of guts to be a UN peacekeeper in a place like that, a lot more guts than dropping LGB's on unarmed civilians from 25,000 feet, or firing glorified bottle rockets at cities from 25 miles away.

Especially when the Israelis consider you a target.
