Kofi and Friends

France, Germany back UN chief
The leaders of France and Germany yesterday gave United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan their full support as he continued to resist the suggestion that he resign over the oil-for-food scandal.
French President Jacques Chirac, who counts Mr Annan among his close friends, yesterday offered his full support to the Secretary-General.

Speaking after meeting Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder in Germany, Mr Chirac said: "Germany and France reiterate their full support for Kofi Annan whose commitment to the aims of the United Nations is total."
Since the aims of the United Nations seem to be to enrich the bureaucrats infesting the place and their special pals, you can see why ole Jacques might say that.
Mr Schroeder also pledged his support for Mr Annan.
Isn't he the red fuzzy one?
