Annan: Oil-for-Food Probes Hurt UN

by C1ay / October 25, 2004 6:05 AM PDT

Can you believe it? He actually thinks that investigating U.N. corruption hurts the U.N.

And to think, Kerry wants to hand the whole Iraq thing back over to the U.N. What a moronic idea.

what you said makes no sense

The post wasn't criticizing 'suggestions'......it's criticizing a corrupt UN that now is whining about being investigated, for pete's sake. And yes....there HAVE been suggestions here about what to do about the UN and that's to dismantle this worthless piece of 'governing bodies' since they don't do anything constructive around the world anymore anyhow. Nearly all of the countries represented can be bought by other countries and the ones that are truly in need of help get ignored by the majority.

Annan is the most hypocritical 'ruler/speaker/decision maker' of the bunch and should have been replaced long ago. This body of countries voted two weeks ago UNANIMOUSLY to send 4000 troops to Baghdad to relieve the coalition there so we could move on to Faluja, and only Fiji actually stepped up to the plate and volunteered the 150 that they could afford to send.

Gimme a break with the UN already.......even the name of that piece of trash pisses me off. All the Oil-For-Food money that can be recovered should be sent back to Iraq, and the countries in the UN who have benefited from that money (stole it) should be forced to pay it all back PUBLICLY. Instead, Annan has decided that the investigation into that theft should be paid for with the same Oil-For-Food fund that is still available. What crap........

Do you have a better idea

Yeah, just about any idea that puts U.S. security first would be better than letting U.N. act as a steering body. Do you mean you actually support U.N. control over Iraq?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
