Isn't it interesting that Kofi Annan decided to go back into the increasingly-dangerous Iraq? Wasn't it just a few days ago that there were more crazy bombings - hundreds killed and injured? I thought Bush & Co. just decided to threaten the UN somehow, to get them to go in to Iraq, but instead, they waved a carrot - a big carrot at that:
US President George W. Bush (news - web sites) has asked lawmakers to approve a 1.2-billion-dollar loan to the United Nations (news - web sites) to pay for a major renovation the UN headquarters in New York, the State Department said.
Call me a cynic.
