Kofi (Oil For Food Program Scandal) Annon Bid's Farewell

Annan Criticizes U.S. in Farewell Speech

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.

Annan, who leaves the United Nations on Dec. 31 after 10 years as secretary-general, has become an increasingly vocal critic of the war in Iraq.

He said in the text that the U.S. has a special responsibility to the world because it continues to have extraordinary power.

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

He chose the Truman museum for his final major speech in part because it is dedicated to a president who was instrumental in the founding of the United Nations. His text repeatedly praised the Truman administration but never mentioned Bush by name.

"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.



"Against such threats as these, no nation can make itself secure by seeking supremacy over all others."

Annan also called for a reform of the Security Council, saying its membership "still reflects the reality of 1945." He suggested adding new members to represent parts of the world with less of a voice.

He said the permanent members, the world powers, "must accept the special responsibility that comes with their privilege.'

"The Security Council is not just another stage on which to act out national interests," he said in another jab at Bush.

Annan has a had a strained relationship with the administration and with outgoing U.S. Ambassador John Bolton.

He was criticized by some in the administration and in Iraq after saying earlier this month that the level of violence in Iraq is much worse than that of Lebanon's civil war and that some Iraqis believe their lives were better under Saddam Hussein.

He also has urged the international community to help rebuild Iraq, saying he was not sure Iraq could accomplish it alone.

Bolton also is leaving this month. He resigned in the wake of the November elections, which gave Democrats control over the next Congress, making his Senate confirmation unlikely.

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?"

The good news is that Kofi is leaving the bad news is that the UN still exists and the US is still a member of this corrupt and useless organization. Kofi's successor will be no different since the majority of the UN thinks as he did or worse.

I was reading someplace that the consensus at Turtle Bay favors a South Korean who mirrors Annan's views.

Hell, why not Muammar Qadhaffi or Kim Jong Illness, or Mahmoud Ahmadmanjihad, it's all one and the same!

The only sane answer to Annan's farewell (hasta la bye bye, and good riddance!) speech would be for us to evict the corrupt, socialist, anti-American organization from our property, withdraw our membership and stop funding them altogether. See how fast they end up sharing a bench in hell with the League of Nations.

I agree! Why in the heck we ever got involved with the UN and allowed it on our soil to begin with is beyond me.

I am sick to death of funding that Corrupt organization and I would truly like it gone.

It's worthless!
