UN Calls Iran ‘Solution’ for Peace Print E-mail

The United Nations is claiming that Iran is the “solution” to bring peace in the Middle East. Apparently, UN envoy Kofi Annan contends that since Iran is developing nuclear weapons, the regime is creating so-called ‘peace bombs.’

According to the Houston Chronicle, “International envoy Kofi Nnan tried to rescue his peace plan for Syria by seeking help Monday from Iran, a staunch ally and military backer of President Bashar Assad’s regime.”

In response, Slaman Shaikh, director of the Brookings Doha Center and an analyst on regional politics, said, “Kofi thinks you can’t have a political transition and solution without the Iranians on board, but this is till part of the understanding that Assad and the regime will be part of the solution – an idea many of have given up on.”

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, “government forces and rebels have widely disregarded a cease-fire that was to begin in April, and spreading violence has kept nearly 300 U.N. observers monitoring the truce stuck in their hotels in Syria.”

Accordingly, while bloodshed reigns on the streets of Syria, UN peacekeepers are enjoying 5-star treatment at luxury hotels and dining on gourmet food in Damascus, the capital city of Syria.
