So that’s the brunt of the story, after literally all the dust has begun to settle on the incident of four UN observers being killed in Khiam, Lebanon. Once again the ususal stooges for third world terrorism, UN Sec-Gen Kofi Annan, and ilk, immediately cast unofficial blame on Israel, for intentionally targeting unarmed people in the middle of a war zone. Words cannot describe the contempt I have for Kofi Annan, who knows full well that as a politician in his capacity, his words will be believed by the world’s majority who actually take serious that international organization, the UN.
Once again, it turns out that in the rush to paint Israel as the continual chief “evil doer”, the UN Sec-Gen had his “head up his butt”, when he claimed that Israel intentionally targeted the Khiam UN observer station. More than likely it was Kofi Annan who was the doing “intentional damage”, when considering the recent words in an e-mail by one of the UN observers killed in the UN building, Hess-von Kruedener. He wrote
“about heavy IDF artillery and aerial bombardment “within 2 meters of our position.” The Israeli shooting, he added, “has not been deliberate targeting, but has rather been due to tactical necessity.”
In the same article by the NYSUN, US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, provides us with the answer to why Kofi Annan made the grossly unfair charges so early into the investigation.
“John Bolton, objected to any condemnation of Israel. Mr. Bolton also warned against using the incident as a “backdoor way of getting a cease-fire or other larger political and military questions,”
Its wise to withhold any judgement about an incident currently under investigation, (especially when it involves the possiblity of terrorists exploiting the UN for their own safety during a period of hostilities) and with the knowldege that terrorists do not hold human life with the greatest of concern, including those of the UN peace keeping staff.

UPDATE: Retired Canadian Major General Lewis MacKenzie’s radio interview provides an accurate accounting on the UN building being hit, but also on the hositlities going on in Lebanon in general.
