Kofi Annan - Resign Now

Kofi Annan continues to bring shame and undermines the postiion of UN Secretary-General.

Through his actions and that of his son, with and without his implicit approval he is now completely powerless.

The latest saga is the Merceded benz that he gave money to his son to buy and registered in Kofi annan's name thus avoiding import duties in Ghana. It now appears that the car belonged to his son and his son should have paid the import duty.
Why did Kofi agree for the car to be registered in his own name?

All documents relating the Merceded have been "lost", how convenient.

This follows a UN investigation in his son's involvment in the Oil for Food scandal. A scheme overseen / intriduced by his father.

Kofi Annan is now powerless, the USA can do what it wants so long as he is in charge. He was powerless to stop the US led invasion of Iraq and he sits idly by whilst attrocities continue in Iraq.

He has made no comments on Israel's "security wall", not on Israel's intervention in Jenin.

The UN has been trying for 30 years to reach a solution in Cyprus. No UN proposals met with US approval so none were put to both communities. The Annan plan of 2004 came with US fingerpritns all over it, so it was billed as "The only viable solution" by Annan. When this was rejected by the Greek-Cypriots (the only scheme to be rejected by the Greek-Cypriots), Annan came out on the side of his supporters (USA) and criticised them.

Annan must go, he is no longer impartial, he has no power and his administration is rife with corruption. :thmbdown:

I think it will be silly to blame annan for invasion of Iraq and Israel related issues. And theoratically Oil for food programme is a good programme. The way it was implemented is out of his hand. Agreed that he is not impartial, and he has no power, though he is the head of UN.

Which goes to show that UN wasn't capable of taking decisive action, already long before Annan's time. You can't really blame the ineffectiveness of an organisation such as the UN on it's head honcho alone.

The fact that Annan entourage has been caught with its fingers in the pie (Oil for Food) renders him inneffective , he cannot preach from any morale standpoint.

The only Secretary-General not to have brought any disgrace to the position or organisation was Sir Gladwyn Jebb, and that's only because he didn't do anything worth criticising.

Glen: "That last post of Bastin's is just too authoritative to argue against."

gOD: "It scares the f*ck out of me but I'm with Bastin here."

Cacìni: "Ah, there you go using that absurd über-memory of your's...not fair."

Boyo: "Even when it comes to rap, Bastin is an authority."

Attila_the_Nun: "A most respected scion of Misty Albion, the illustious Bastin - the redoubtable defender of all our noble traditions."

Humbird: "Bastin is very attractive when talking nautical! "

When you say he didn't do anything worth criticising, do you mean he didn't do anything?

I'm sure that he sorted out the office decor and got some new stationery printed up, but he didn't quite have enough time to, say, aid the Chinese government against the Maoists, stop Nazi war criminals from fleeing to Argentina, or prevent the Soviet Union taking over Central Europe. That sort of thing takes longer to do.
