Kofi Still Clueless

According to KA, Hezbollah aren't really such bad sorts. They just want to be accepted. My Way News:
"UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The United Nations must recognize Hezbollah as a force to be reckoned with in implementing the U.N. resolution calling for the withdrawal of all Syrian forces from Lebanon and the disarmament of the country's militias, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Tuesday.

He was responding to a question about the disarmament of Hezbollah, which showed its strength Tuesday at a huge pro-Syrian rally in Beirut attended by hundreds of thousands of people who chanted anti-U.S. slogans. Two huge banners read in English: 'Thank you Syria' and 'No to foreign interference.'

Annan said the world needs to accept that in every society different groups may hold different views."
We are sure Hezbollah is completely on board with the idea of accepting different views. They have certainly shown themselves to be a peaceful, tolerant group in the past.
"'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."
Kofi needs to use some of his share of the swag from the Oil for Food Scam to buy himself a clue here. The entire point of the demonstration was to oppose the UN resolution that requires Syrian withdrawl. So, yes, it is "entirely at odds with the Security Council resolution." When Hezbollah speaks of ending "foreign interference" in Lebanon, it has nothing at all to do with Syrian or Iranian activities, which certainly cannot be labeled "foreign" or "interference."
