Run Kofi, run!

The UN decided to "cut and run" after their headquarters in Iraq was bombed.

Now, they have decided to cut, run, and never look back:

Despite a new resolution giving the United Nations a bigger role in Iraq, the organization won't beef up the skeleton staff still in the country after two bombings because of security concerns, a U.N. spokesman said Friday.

A day after the U.N. Security Council unanimously adopted the U.S.-backed resolution, spokesman Fred Eckhard said Secretary-General Kofi Annan isn't prepared under current conditions to send back more than 500 international staffers who were ordered to leave after the bombings in August and September.

If this is the kind of commitment the UN is going to make to Iraq, why would we want them involved at all?
