#1 I think that a functioning surprise meter would be appropriate. Or maybe that bunny rabbit with his jaw on the floor.

#4 Brave Sir Robin ran away.
Bravely ran away, away!
When danger reared its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat,
Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!

#9 Egeland's thought process: If I don't say something like this, Bolton's gonna kick my ass up and down the stairs.

#10 So much for bringing Israel in front of the Hague. With this statement, the UN just ruined their lies war crimes case. Any possible war crimes against Israel is definitely DOA.

#11 Kofi's a short timer. Jan wants to make sure he's safe with the new guy and that if Bolton goes permanent he'll put in a good world for Jan with the new honcho. Gotta keep those bribes coming.

#12 Egeland is a UN prick who sometimes gets it right in spite of himself. This is the guy who was very unjustly critical of the USA for failing to respond to the Indo tsunami a couple years back (when the US and Aussie navies were on the scene in 48 hours whereas a month later the UN was still nwhere to be found). For him to make a statement like this means someone has pictures of him in bed with a live little boy or a dead woman.

#14 "For him to make a statement like this means someone has pictures of him in bed with a live little boy or a dead woman."
Eh, whatever works. The truth will out.

#15 I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this. I don't think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men."

Read the subtext. He's still saying -- confirming -- that Israel killed women and children (while Israel says the "civilians" they killed were actually hezzies -- that they didn't kill as many "civilians" as the media says they did)

#16 For some reason this didn't make the NBC Evening News.

#17 "The U.N. humanitarian chief, returing from a visit to Beirut"

The key phrase is "returning from". He did not dare utter that while he was in Beirut.

#18 Yea, definitely up for reassignment. Jus like the original UN guy investigating the Assad killing of Hariri

#19 Yes, but you must pair this with what he said about Israel after returning too. I didn't know Egeland was capable of the "Arab double-speak"...say one thing in English, and the complete opposite in Arabic after the MSM cameras turn away. Turd.

#20 "For him to make a statement like this means someone has pictures of him in bed with a live little boy or a dead woman."

Whiskey Mike, neither of those situations would bother a UN peacekeeper.
