Kofi Annan’s Pricey Syria Peace Mission: Almost $7.5 Million Over 10 Months
By Patrick Goodenough

It seems the United Nations Syrian "peace mission" will be expensive, very expensive.

"Mr." Kofi Annan, is submitting an operating budget to the U.N. worth around $7.5 Million !!!!

Maybe peace is worth it, but will we actually see "peace" ??

With Mr. Annan's shady record and questionable past, I wonder.

I think he likes his "Kofi" with plenty of "cream & sugar", plus all the green cash he and his band of pirates can get their hands on IMO.

I hope he makes the "peace" he preaches. I really do.

( – Kofi Annan’s precarious Syria peace mission will cost the world’s taxpayers almost $7.5 million, according to a document seeking U.N. General Assembly approval for the budget.

Over the 10-month period ending December 31, Annan and 17 other officials attached to the mission will account for a combined $3,022,300 in “salaries and common staff costs.”

“The effective discharge of the activities of the Joint Special Envoy [Annan] will require international staff to support his office, liaise with all relevant actors and manage the day-to-day activities,” states the budget document, dated April 11. “The staff will have an official base in Geneva and travel regularly to the field to liaise with relevant actors.”
"relevant actors" ??

Read the insanity in the story.

It's Your Dime ... this time !!

here's some of Kofi's "Credentials"

He and the U.N. jointly won the Nobel peace prize in 2001 “for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world,” but the latter part of his tenure was overshadowed by the scandal over corruption in the Iraq “oil-for-food” program.

The program was set up in 1996 to help ease hardships faced by ordinary Iraqis by allowing Saddam Hussein’s sanctioned regime to sell specified quantities of oil in return for food and medicines.

It was later found to have been riddled with fraud and corruption, and official inquiries resulted in numerous sanctions and prosecutions for fraud, corruption, money laundering and other offenses.

Asked during a March 2005 press conference whether he would quit over the scandal, he replied, “Hell, no.”
No Kidding !!

I feel very comfortable and have the utmost confidence in Kofi.

He is a man of and for the people

The damn "peace plan was a ploy..............they do not intend to let this crisis go to waste as long as there are Syrians willing to die.....
The plan is and always was a takeover of Syria, by treachery or revolution.
Syria is Irans outpost and confidante, they may as well be considered one enemy.....
One cannot take Iran out with Syria at his back.....They need to control Syria, to enable the Iran game to begin......
The two are interlinked.
