Useless Annan

Annan unable to confirm troops alive There's no doubt in my mind this clown is the most useless human being on the planet. A big strong, but my aggravation with anything to do with the UN has doubled in the last couple of months, and it was pretty huge before this most recent mess.
"There will be no unconditional release. This is not possible," Minister of Energy and Hydraulic Resources Mohammed Fneish, one of two Hizbullah members in Lebanon's Cabinet, told reporters in Beirut.
Pardon my ignorance, but wouldn't the "Minister of Energy and Hydraulic Resources" be more inclined to deal with, oh, let's say energy and hydraulic resources, and NOT war? This statement from a member of Hezbollah tells me who, in the Lebanese government actually running the show. The Lebanese people voted these two terrorists into power, and have effectively given over their lives to the results of their actions, aka....war with Israel.
"There should be an exchange through indirect negotiations. This is the principle to which Hizbullah and the resistance are adhering," he said.
The difference between arresting criminals and kidnapping soldiers is obvious to me. I guess, however, the terrorist mind works a lot differently.
Annan told reporters that he was under the impression that the kidnapped troops were alive, but stopped short of confirming it. He was referring to a statement by US civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson, who met Syrian and Hamas leaders in Damascus and said that the soldiers were "alive and well."
Someone explain to me what Jesse Jackson has to do with anything? Another anti-Semite getting involved with the situation. That sure makes sense. (read sarcasm) Israel has not lifted the blockade, and says it won't unless both international forces, and Lebanese troops are deployed on the Lebanon-Syria border to prevent more weapons from coming into the country to re-arm Hezbollah. I can understand their position completely. You'd think the "international" world would try to enforce this request.
Asked by a reporter why he was going to Iran, a country whose leader has called for the destruction of Israel, Annan replied, "As the secretary-general of the UN, it is my responsibility to speak with anybody who can help us improve the situation. If I can't have a discussion with Ahmandinejad, how else could I relay the message that what he is saying is wrong."
Another slap on the wrist? (snicker) Ahmebooboo doesn't give a happy crap what Annan and the UN says, why on earth would he start now?
