Resident Failure Leaves Worthless Organization

The most corrupt and useless Secretary General of the UN is saying his goodbyes, and all the while getting some gratuitous hits in on the Bush administration.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, in his farewell address, criticized the Bush administration, warning that America must not sacrifice its Democratic ideals while waging war against terrorism.

In remarks prepared for delivery Monday at the Truman Presidential Museum and Library, Annan also said the Security Council should be expanded.

"Human rights and the rule of law are vital to global security and prosperity," Annan's text said. When the U.S. "appears to abandon its own ideals and objectives, its friends abroad are naturally troubled and confused," he said.

Abandon its own ideals. You know, like the US citizen's right to life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. Oh, and Democracy - we've given that up to wage war on murderous terrorists... I think only France is ever confused about the benefits of fighting wars for one's own survival...

Annan summed up five principles that he considers essential: collective responsibility, global solidarity, rule of law, mutual accountability and multilateralism.

Collective Responsibility: The US is responsible for aiding the victims of worldwide natural disasters, and not insane murderous dictators.

Global Solidarity: If the world doesn't want the US to do something it shouldn't - even if dictatorial terrorists despots are the ones objecting.

Rule of Law: Too easy to mock coming from a man who allowed the UN to be bought off.

Multilateralism: Only operate when the UN says it is ok to. Except the UN never says it's ok: see : "Darfur."

"As President Truman said, 'The responsibility of the great states is to serve and not dominate the peoples of the world,'" Annan said.

"He believed strongly that henceforth security must be collective and indivisible. That was why, for instance, that he insisted when faced with aggression by North Korea against the South in 1950, on bringing the issue to the United Nations," Annan said.

"Serve" the "peoples of the world." You mean like, keeping tyrannical dictators from murdering them? Oh, and when Truman brought the Korean conflict to the UN, the Security Council wasn't being paid off to not vote in support of war by the North Koreans - a bit of a difference there...

After a private dinner Tuesday night at the White House for Annan, Bolton joked that "nobody sang 'Kumbaya.'"

Told at the time of Bolton's comment, Annan laughed and asked: "But does he know how to sing it?"

What? I don't even know what this means! Maybe he meant to say, "Hell, yes!"

Kofi Annan: good riddance. No one will miss you - except the tyrannical dictators of the world.
