UN attack looks deliberate: Annan
Herald Sun ^ | 26 July 2006

Posted on 07/25/2006 4:50:09 PM PDT by Aussie Dasher

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan today said he was "shocked" at Israel's "apparently deliberate targeting" of a UN post in Lebanon, in which up to four UN observers were killed.

Mr Annan described the strike as a "co-ordinated artillery and aerial attack on a long established and clearly marked UN post."

He said it took place "despite personal assurances given to me by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that UN positions would be spared Israeli fire."

"Furthermore, General Alain Pelligrini, the UN Force Commander in south Lebanon, had been in repeated contact with Israeli officers throughout the day on Tuesday, stressing the need to protect that particular UN position from attack.

"I call on the Government of Israel to conduct a full investigation into this very disturbing incident and demand that any further attack on UN positions and personnel must stop.

"The names and nationalities of those killed are being withheld pending notification of their families. I extend sincere condolences to the families of our fallen peacekeepers."

A war with the UN would probably be a pretty short one.

The UN has been there all along which is why Hezbulla has found it impossible to make any raids into Israel or obtain huge quantities of bombardment rockets and other weapons. Way to go! UN! UN is equally successful in Kashmir.

Something smells funny about this, where was it, on the
roof of a Hezb'ullah armory?

I sure hope it was deliberate... that would indicate the IDF had good information that the UN observers were cooperating with Hezbollah leaders and providing shelter... no way they deliberately target it without that knowledge... would be another nail in the UN coffin.

the U.N. is a vocal enemy of Israel, as noticed by the large volume of resolutions condemning Israeli actions.

Why didn't coffee pull out his peacekeepers? His statement about "deliberate" is grotesque, but oh so typical anti-Isreal Kofi. I wouldn't be surprised at all, if it is found that one of the biggies Isreal got today was in this very attack. Were the hezzies taking refuse in the UN camp? Was this done with Kofi's knowledge? Perhaps that will be part of the investigation.

If Israel wanted to attack the United Ninnies,,, err. I mean United Nations, it would not hit a outpost, it would hit Kofi.

Kofi ,

The UN is an unindicted coconspirator (do not take this to mean that I believe that the Indian/UN soldiers should have been killed). Kofi can kiss my *ss in Macy's window.

Sadly, Kofi, Hezbollah's arsenal is being stored in apartment houses filled with innocent families. The only way to clean Hezbollah out, is to also kill those families. Diabolic maneuver on Hezbollah's part. Diabolic and effective, unless those families are warned ahead of time to evacuate the buildings before attack.

UN attack looks deliberate: Annan

Will it be discovered that the UN HQ was being used as a communications center for Hezbollah?

And will the evidence then be suppressed by the UN?

Kofi, if your terrorist sympathizing U.N. had enforced the resolutions it passed years ago as it should have this war would probably not even be happening. There's plenty of blood on your hands!

This is totally off topic, but I was watching the Today show this morning and they were doing a dance segment on the tango. They had the UN dance instructor on as a tango expert. WTH? No questions as to why on earth the UN would need a dance instructor on its payroll.

On the other thread, it was posted that the UN post that was taken out, was an observation tower leading into the Bekaa Valley.

Apparently the media, the Democrats, the academics and all the other leftist lunatic don't want to recognize that Hezbollah, Hamas and al Qaeda are all the same thing: terrorists who would love to repeat 9/11/01 all over again. Israel is doing the right thing by killing Hezbollahs/terrorists, and we should be helping them.

The UN is as much an enemy to Israel as Jizzbollah is. There's nothing unusual about shelling the enemy's observation posts during a time of war.

Good luck! It only points out the ineffectiveness, if not collusion, of the UN in Hezbollah's current offensives.

Fallen? Yes.

But can we NOT call them "peacekeepers"?

That term is almost as meaningless as what the term "Border Guard" in Texas.

Well, on another thread, we have had some discussion of this. My feeling is that the UN is basically making a PC offering to whatever terrorist is in charge in a particular place. Remember the Belgian "peacekeepers" in Africa who weren't allowed to fire and were overrun and hacked or burned to death (with the Africans for some reason cutting off their noses first)?

No country, including 3rd world holes, should permit the UN to have control of their forces. The UN has absolutely no program and no system for permitting their "forces" to defend themselves, let alone have any effect on the area in which they are stationed.

I love the fact that Israel is targeting the banks and financial institutions for moving Hezzie money and accomodating them in lots of other ways. TV producer worked thru the many phone calls needed to send money to an address in an Arab TV appeal for funds for Hezzies and it traced to Wachovia bank here in USA. People need to be paying attention to this kind of activity.

Lebanon and Syria and others have harbored the Hezzies for years. Bush made it clear after 9-11 that any person or country that harbors terrorists is a part of the problem, not part of the solution. Now seems some of the chickens are coming home to roost.

I wish I had more funds in my retirement that I could send money to Israel.
