NEW YORK The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations rebuked its secretary-general, Kofi Annan, yesterday in a spat over who would get to photocopy the Iraqi weapons declaration that arrived in New York on Sunday.

The Americans did the work no small job for a declaration that came as a pile of paper about 4 feet thick. But Iraq immediately accused the United States of using the opportunity to distort the report, and Mr. Annan joined in criticizing the handling of the document.

Great post. Kofi Annan looks more and more like evil incarnate whenever I read something about him...

And Carter looks like Neville Chamberlain.

Former President Jimmy Carter, in Norway to accept the Nobel Peace Prize this week, yesterday joined his hosts in arguing that all 15 council members should receive the unedited report — even if that means giving countries such as Syria a virtual recipe for making weapons of mass destruction. "My general inclination is, 'Why not let the entire membership of the Security Council see the report?' That would be my personal preference," Mr. Carter said.

Hey Jimmy, who gives a DAMN what you "think". If it weren’t for your inept, mindless, naive, & pitiful stewardship, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are today. Some great provider of peace you are. Just look what your inept handling of the Islamic revolution has brought to the world at large. The Iran revolution has spurned the greatest threat to world peace since the Third Reich. We are still cleaning up after YOUR mess. I fear we may loose a lot of innocent people to this “peace” you are responsible for. I hope you choke on your “peace prize” you Moron!

Of course he wants Syria to have WMDs.

From: Carter uses peace prize speech to condemn US policy

"One of the key factors that arouses intense feelings of animosity in the world is the festering problem in the Holy Land, the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza and the inability of Israel to live in peace with its neighbours," he said.

You would think when the Israelis know how he feels about them, they would wise up enough to understand that this "peace" accord was never meant to be in their best interests.

Norway needs to get a grip. After all Norway voted with the US to give them first access to the report.

And worried about being a b-nation? D-nation more like it.

Just one thing about Carter in Norway.

The media is putting a spin on the reports. Carter did say a lot of silly things, but he also said that he fully supported the current policies of the US administration. He also stated that if Iraq violated the UN resolution, war would be justified and would not be considered preventative.

Headlines about Carter this week could just as well have been, "Carter supports Bush administration, and calls war justified"

His personal preference?! Who the h@ll cares what his personal preference is. Because of his bungling and ineptitude, we're in the mess we're in.

Thank the good Lord that this idiot is no longer president.

And BTW, I didn't really see much coverage of him actually receiving that worthless NPP, but was he wearing a business suit when he received the actual NPP? I thought that was supposed to be the utmost in formal ceremonies, white tie and all that? I swear the picture I saw of him receiving the NPP had him wearing a red (!) tie.

Peanut's publicist?

Nah, I am just a regular Eurotwit.

I do know Carter's dreadful track record, and as a Norwegian I am ashamed by the peace prize commite for this (and other) awards.

The point of my post was merely to point out the media bias. Every single line that Carter muttered were jumped upon and used in their leftist agenda.

The press bias (which in Norway is abhorrent) and their current darling carter is indicative of the state of total moral and intellectual bancruptcy of the socialist left.

BTW. I quite enjoy peanuts.

Good response. You are by no means a Eurotwit. I would assume that the Norwegian press is even further left than the American presstitutes.

Thanks and you are right about the Norwegian media. It is hardly suprising that much of Europe have a somewhat negative image of the US considering the one-sided media bashing going on all the time. Frankly, it's disgusting.

To illustrate: CNN is widely critized here for its pro-US, pro Israel propaganda.
