Kofi Ananas

Koif Annan, the UN secretary-general has given the BBC an interview to mark the end of his term of office at the end of this month. According to Annan, life was much better in Iraq under Saddam.

BBC: Was it [ the invasion of Iraq] a mistake? Some Iraqis say that life is worse than it was under a dictator.

Kofi Annan: I think they are right in the sense of the average Iraqi's life. If I were an average Iraqi obviously I would make the same comparison, that they had a dictator who was brutal but they had their streets, they could go out, their kids could go to school and come back home without a mother or father worrying, "Am I going to see my child again?" And the Iraqi government has not been able to bring the violence under control.
There you have, Saddam's death squads may have killed thousands but it was not so bad. Of course the fawning member of the BBC slutocracy conducting the interview did not ask Kofi Bananas if he preferred the old days because of the oil for food rake-offs his family were into.
