Iraq's new Foreign Minister spoke to the UN Security Council today.
"The UN as an organisation failed to help rescue the Iraqi people from a murderous tyranny of 35 years," he said. "The UN must not fail the Iraqi people again."
“We ask you today, please put aside your differences, pull together and work with us”, for all of those who sacrificed so much to realize the shared objective of a sovereign, united and democratic Iraq, he said.
This caused Secretary General Kofi Annan to whine that "it was 'no time to pin blame and point fingers' over the past." (AFP)
This seems to me like a scene out of Atlas Shrugged. Iraq asks for help in moving forward and rebuilding Iraq and all the UN can do is complain that now isn't the time to be placing blame on anyone.
