We Promise

Great news everyone! Kofi Annan reports that Syria is willing to police its own border with Lebanon to stop illegal arms shipments to Hezbollah. They're willing to deploy an entire battalion (600-800 troops). The border is 375 kilometers long, of course, but I'm sure this a genuine effort and not a bald-faced diplomatic lie.

Kofi Annan is so cute when he's naive.

Oops, your racism is showing.

I'm afraid to even ask how it is racist to note that Syria's commitment towards protect Jewish lives is less than ironclad.

Yeah Dave. God. You're so racist. I think we've all had enough of your bigoted, non-descript geopolitcal analysis and your prejudicial use of math.

Not that. The last sentence.

The last sentence is kind of intricately connected to the paragraph before. Patronizing condesencion is probably the nicest response I can give the Secretary General in this situation.

Pointing out the foolishness of politicians isn't racism. At least when they actually are being foolish.
