Good thing we have Kofi as UN chief

Annan: Rising violence is 'very worrying' is a sub-headline over at MSNBC in this article. Gee, you think so, Kofi?

Israeli UN Ambassador Dan Gillerman said,

While Israel regrets any loss of life, it will not sit idly by and allow “human bombs” or rockets to penetrate the country and kill Israelis — and he asked whether every country wouldn’t do the same to eliminate a similar danger.

“The danger I must add, not just to Israel but also to the whole free world, and to civilization as we know it, as this axis of evil and terror sows the seeds of the first world war of the 21st century.”

Yep. When a near-nuclear power (Iran) says things like

  • [Israel] "is 'on the road to being eliminated,'"
  • “Like it or not, the Zionist regime is heading toward annihilation,”
  • “The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm,”
  • "Israel should be 'wiped off the map,'” and
  • "Israel a 'permanent threat' to the Middle East that will 'soon' be liberated,"

... you take it seriously.

But wait -- I thought Iran was developing nuclear power only for ... electricity!!
