Give Me a Friggin' Break! The UN Lets the Fox Watch The Henhouse!!

I said I couldn't be surprized by some of the idiocy that comes out of the UN, but Kofi Annan's latest move, does astound me. Good ol' terrorist loving Kofi has said that the UN will let Syria enforce the arms embargo on the Hezbollah.
Kofi Annan, the UN secretary-general, said today that Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, had promised to enforce an arms embargo on Hizbollah under a UN resolution that halted Israel's war with the Lebanese group.

"The president informed me that Syria supports the Security Council Resolution 1701 and will help in its implementation," Annan told reporters after talks with Assad in Damascus.

"While stating Syrian objections to the presence of foreign forces along the Syrian-Lebanese border, the president committed to me that Syria will take all necessary measures to implement in full paragraph 15 of the resolution," Annan added, referring to a provision that bans illegal arms shipments to Lebanon.

Syria funnels arms to the Hezzies and Kofi instead of putting UN "Peacekeeper" on the border to prevent Syria from smuggling those arms, allows Syria to enforce the embargo. Can he get any stupider? Yes, Syria objected to the troops on the Syrian border, because they want to restock the Hezzies, that doesn't mean you should back down and take Assad's word that he will enforce the embargo. Israel might as well gear up for another war, because with the UN in southern Lebanon, the Hezzies are just going to re-arm and come back at them. Kofi is not only incompetent, he is a danger to world peace.
