Haifa, Morning, Sirens. Coffee?
That picture above is of him shaking the hand of Nasrallah. That man has zero credibility in my opinion.
So during the sirens, during the 28 rockets that hit the north, during the 10 people injured, none of which was shown anywhere so far, he had this to say (and I'm paraphrasing):
"Yeah Hezbollah is kind of responsible for starting this, but we need a ceasefire to end the hostilities, Iran and Syria are friendly countries and we should start talking to them. It's not fair that Israel is attacking bridges and roads in Lebanon because medical provisions can't be delivered, food provisions can't be delivered..." - and weapon provisions can't be delivered either, can they Kofi?
Israel allowed a corridor for medical aid and for people to leave. But it is an inconvenience right now to deliver weapons into Lebanon. Bummer. He also complained how what Israel is doing might overthrow the democratic government in Lebanon. Excuse me, Hezbollah overrunning the country and weakening the government until it's powerless to control it in any way didn't threaten the democratic government in Lebanon? Or is it UN policy to pretend the problem is not there and maybe it will go away.
Blows my mind that they don't say anything about the million people who have been living in bunkers for the past 10 days and all of those who had (or decided) to drop everything and move south until this is over. Kofi is out of there come December.
In other news, the US is providing us with precision missiles. Thank you US. What's really great is how people here are holding firm, 10 days and they show no sign of breaking. We can do this siren thing all day.
