Kofi's Goodbye

Outgoing U.N. secretary-general set to blast Bush.

Annan's farewell speech a tough critique of Bush administration; charges Bush bullies other nations in fight on terror.

In a farewell speech on U.S. soil today, retiring United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan plans to deliver a tough critique of President Bush's policies. He will accuse the administration of trying to secure the United States from terrorism in part by dominating other nations through force, committing what he termed human rights abuses and taking military action without broad international support.

Though Annan has long been a critic of the war in Iraq and other Bush foreign policies, the planned speech is among his toughest and is unusual for a U.N. secretary-general concluding his tenure.

Annan's remarks, provided to USA TODAY by his office, list principles for international relations, among them "respect for human rights and the rule of law."

Easy to kick the dog when you're leaving. Especially when you've been so righteous yourself.

The best defense is a good offense.

But in the grand scheme of things, Annan's a "so what," imo anyway.

Kofi is just getting himself set up for the lucrative America bashing speaking tour after his exit.

A mans gotta make a buck, no?

Kofi Annan = Complete Failure

Imagine with China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, Darfur, North Korea, Al Queda, Jihadists, Talibans, etc all dictatoring and/or murdering and/or repressing and/or abusing...that his goodbye speech bashes the United States.

It's truly mind boggling.

But like I said

America bashing = $$$ in his pocket.

Oh well.

Good Riddance, Kofi. I hope you had the time of your life.

And thank you for a job......done.

Kofi is probably just a bit upset over his little oil scam being scuttled by the war.

For a guy who masterminded perhaps one of the largest international money-laundering and graft scemes in human history, he's got balls.

I'm going to attribute balls to everyone who does something courageous from now on, thanks to that thread, and mostly because if you've got the guts to hang your sexual organs OUTSIDE your body, well, you've got balls.

Then does "I've got labia" work?

I'm planning a whole new ad campaign for that.

Guys and gals with white creamy liquid on their lips.

A sign that reads "Got labia?"

Please don't say that. Statements like that often precede a massive whirlwind sound, and then tremendous pain in and around the area Mac is smacking me.

You know it. I'm a comedic genius. And I'm on that razor thin edge today. LOL. I cracked myself up typing it.

Kofi and Bush are intellectual twins.
