Ban Ki Moon Shaken By Baghdad Blast: Today's Cartoon

After just a few short months as Secretary General of the United Nations, it now appears that South Korea's Ban Ki-Moon will probably be replaced, with Iraq's "Ban Ki-BOOM!” So just remember, if the mainstream media decides to run with it, you read it hear first ;)

You know, I always thought that a "ringing endorsement" was supposed to mean an expression of validation, but apparently, when it comes to Iraq's new security measure; it can also refer to the shock waves from thunderous explosions that seem to accompany such declarations. I mean, what's the point of the UN even considering boosting its presence in that war torn nation, if it's being decided upon while cowering behind a podium?

It's unfortunate, but Ban Ki-Moon panicked reaction to nearby rocket blast all but erases any reassurances he made to the Iraqi government (and the world) about the improved security situation in Baghdad. Although you can't really blame the Secretary General, after all he is in a war zone; and chances are that if it were a car backfiring instead, he probably would have done the exact same thing.
