Throughout his tenure, Annan violated the UN Charter's mandate. It's to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war"."
Instead, he supported imperial lawlessness. He spurned peace. He never condemned or tried to end devastating Iraq sanctions. They killed around 1.5 innocent men, women and children. He stood by, watched, and did nothing.
He never denounced America's lawless 2003 war. He was silent while Washington-led NATO ravaged Afghanistan. He supported the worst of Israeli crimes.
He said nothing about America's failed attempts to oust Hugo Chavez or success removing Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Like NATO, he's an imperial tool. He resurfaced in Syria.
His so-called peace plan was cover for regime change. He's complicit in war crimes. He's a world class scoundrel. His record is testimony to failure, betrayal, and criminality.
His sole achievement was spurning peace for war.
Three former Israeli prime ministers also got Nobel Peace Prizes. In 1978, Menachem Begin won. In 1994, so did Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres.
All three are war criminals. They and other Israeli leaders reigned terror on Palestinian civilians for decades. Netanyahu continues their deplorable viciousness. He's Israel's worst ever leader. He's a world class thug. Expect Nobel Committee members one day to honor him. It wouldn't surprise.
