Whatever the pronunciation, I’m there until next Friday. I’ll try to keep up (at least) daily posts, but if I’m slow that’s why.
Happy Spring Break!

“Let’s Accept Hezbollah: Annan,” Associated Press, 9 March 2005, http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1046733.cms.
United Nations Secretary Genreal Kofi Annan calls for normalizing Hezbollah. Does Annan read tdaxp?
The United Nations must recognise Hezbollah as a force to be reckoned with in implementing the UN resolution calling for the withdrawal of all Syrian forces from Lebanon and the disarmament of the country’s militias, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said later on Tuesday.
He was responding to a question about the disarmament of Hezbollah, which showed its strength on Tuesday at a huge pro-Syrian rally in Beirut attended by thousands of people who chanted anti-US slogans.
Annan said the world needs to accept that in every society different groups may hold different views. “Of course, we need to be careful of the forces at work in Lebanese society as we move forward,” he said.
“But even the Hezbollah — if I read the message on the placards they are using — they are talking about non-interference by outsiders… which is not entirely at odds with the Security Council resolution, that there should be withdrawal of Syrian troops,” Annan told reporters.
It’s good Annan recognizes Hezbollah’s move for what it is.
For this (rare) insight, Templar Pundit calls for defunding the U.N.:
Funding ought to be revoked from the UN for their recent behavior.
Defunding the U.N for for its evil acts? Possibly. For trying to bring about peace on democracy in the Greater Middle East? Never?
Of course I’m just a Republican spam bot, so what do I know?
