It’s not a joke anymore


We all expect bumbling stupidity and ineffectiveness from the UN. However,
on top of oil for food corruption and food for child-sex scandals, we are now seeing another sinister turn.

Looks like Kofi Annan has more to answer for in the deaths of those 4 UNIFIL soldiers than simple negligence in failing to order their evacuation. The Western Standard notes the following:

…throughout the recent war, it [UNIFIL] posted on its website for all to see precise information about the movements of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers and the nature of their weaponry and materiel, even specifying the placement of IDF safety structures within hours of their construction. New information was sometimes only 30 minutes old when it was posted, and never more than 24 hours old.

Meanwhile, UNIFIL posted not a single item of specific intelligence regarding Hezbollah forces. Statements on the order of Hezbollah “fired rockets in large numbers from various locations” and Hezbollah’s rockets “were fired in significantly larger numbers from various locations” are as precise as its coverage of the other side ever got.

…you should read the whole thing.
