Kofi Annan versus the U.S.

Not all New York newspapers behave as if they are house organs of the Democratic party. From today's New York Post:

U.S. and Iraqi forces last night were heavily engaged in what may well be the decisive battle for Iraq's future.

People of good will everywhere wish them well — but U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan wishes Operation Phantom Fury never got started.

Last week, Annan wrote President Bush and Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Iyad Allawi, warning that an assault on Fallujah would alienate Iraqis and make it difficult to carry out the coming elections.

Annan can't possibly be that naive.

He's not; he simply opposes U.S. power. He opposed Operation Iraqi Freedom, calling the war in Iraq "illegal." And he opposes Phantom Fury.
